Traveling Stash Giveaway!!!

I'm sure some of you have heard by now that I won traveling stash box #5 from Marci at Marci Girl Designs recently.  If you don't know the traveling stash boxes are fabric and goodies that travel around the US and are kept track of by Cherise at Sewingly Along, she does a fantastic job and you can always see where the boxes are by visiting her blog.  When you are the lucky recipient you can keep anything you want out of the box, as long as you replace what you take with like items.  What a great idea, huh???

Here it what was in the box when I received it:

These were in the box along with all of this, too

Wow, talk about a lot of options to choose from.
Here is what I decided to keep for myself:

I am super excited about the hexagons. Can't wait to use these.  The button covers will become cherries for a quilt I'm working on. Thanks Marci!!! I love the books so I kept those and added two different ones back in.  I also love the two inch squares, can't wait to see what I can create with them. There are a lot of cute cuts in there.  Bet you're excited to see what is in the box now.  These next pictures show what I added back in. Although to get it to all fit I had to take the multi-color striped fabric that is in the upper right hand corner of the third picture from the top on this post.

Here is a better look at what I added in for you to choose from:

              I added also added some snaps, sewing machine needles and some fusible tape not in these pix.
The lower set are all fat quarters. The upper set has a mixture of 1/2 yard cuts and fat quarters.  This box is once again jammed full and ready to visit one lucky lady or guy. If you want a chance to win this box there are a few rules you must follow in order to enter.
