First, if this is your first time visiting my blog, I'd like to welcome you . . . WELCOME! :)
Sharon from Vrooman's Quilts has been keeping track of the Traveling Stash boxes for quite some time now. She is quite busy these days and asked if someone else wanted to keep track of the boxes. My hand immediately went up! :) I just discovered them a couple of months ago and have been following them anyway. Her status report definitely made that easier for me and I'm sure some of you too. I couldn't imagine keeping up with all of them (there are 6 now) without it . . . so here I am! I hope I can make her proud. ;)
I created a button to help in keeping up with the boxes. The picture below is just a picture of the button.
My plan is to post an update once a week. I'm going to try for Mondays. If there are updates during the week, before the next post, I will update the current post with those updates. These are the plans I have right now. Of course I'm a woman and may just change my mind ;) and alter things a bit from my current plans ;).
Here is the current update of the status of the Traveling Stash & Other boxes as of 4/24/12 . . .

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about . . .
What is a Traveling Stash Box?
It is a box that is filled with a collection of "fun quilty love". The box is packed full of fabric, patterns, thread, etc. When you receive it you take what you like and then replace it with similar quantities (or more) of quilt shop quality items. Then you hold a giveaway and send it on its way. Due to shipping costs you must live in the US to participate.
