Traveling Stash

The time has come! 
The stash finally arrived on my door and now, it's your turn!

It was packed with patterns and fabric
I haven't decided what i'm taking yet, I need to let the contents speak to me :)

So, here's how it works.
1. Must be an active blogger - unfortunately, only open to US residents to keep shipping costs low
2. Leave me comment that will make me laugh (its been a long week already)

That's it!
I'll leave the giveaway open until Saturday, March 10 at 12midnight EST

Good luck!


  1. OMG! I want it! Ok... something to make you laugh...

    I wear a lot of maxi dresses and I had TWO embarrassing moments involving them while teaching high school English. The first, I was walking down the stairs in the main hallway. I was wearing one of my favorite dresses, but you know how maxis are. You can never find ones with sleeves, so this particular dress was strapless (don't worry. I had a cardigan over it. No dress coding for me!) Anyway, as I was walking down the stairs, the bottom of my dress got caught in my flip flops and the dress pulled clean off! Well, I was wearing a belt, so it only showed my bra, but teenagers are ruthless and I became known as the stripping teacher! THAT was fun to explain to parents!

    A year or so later, I was wearing a maxi skirt (I was 6 months pregnant. There was precious little that fit me. And no, I hadn't learned my lesson!!) There were only 6 minutes between bells, so I nearly had to RUN to the bathroom each period. This one day, I quickly did my business, washed my hands and ran out into the teachers lounge where I talked to a couple colleagues for 2 seconds and ran out the door into the bustling hallway. I wasn't out there long when I heard, "Um, Mrs. H?? Your skirt is tucked into your underwear." Nice. I pulled it out and told my class about it when the bell rang, Why not? We all deserve a good laugh! I was just mad that the other teachers I talked to when I left the bathroom didn't tell me!!!

  2. Last night we found a frog in our kitchen - I wasn't freaked out so much by the fact the frog was there, but more because I was afraid my cat, Molly (who must be related to Garfield because she likes lasagna) would eat the poor thing! Luckily my husband was able to scoop him up and shoo him out the door before Molly caught wind of his presence.

    Okay maybe not so funny, but my freaking out about how the frog had to leave immediately amused my husband quite a bit. ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. Oh mine is similar to Danny's! My husband and I share a car, and a few weeks ago he had a doctor's appt after work that was on the same street as my office and was running long. It was a niceish day so I said that I'd just walk down when I got out of work and meet him in the waiting room instead of just sitting at my desk. Now I rarely wear dresses/skirts to work but I'd just gotten a new dress and was wearing it that day. So I leave work and start walking and it's so nice and I'm bee-bopping down the road, watching the cars drive past, and then I hear one slow down. I of course, think it must be someone I work with stopping to say Hi, nope, it was a nice lady stopping to tell me that the whole back of my dress was tucked up into my coat. I walked a half a mile down the street that my office is on with my but hanging out!! At least I was wearing tights! I sure hope no one I work with drove by!

  4. While I don't have any half dressed stories to tell so I will have to think hard.

    OK my wife just made me laugh. So i will share that with you. She is pregnant and sort of worn out. She picked up a cross stitch she has been working on to show it too me letting me know that as soon as she washes it I can show it off on my blog as a complete. I looked at it in amazement and said wow how many hours did that take you to do. She sighed and said 9 years.

    That sent me busting up into laughing and now she is crying thinking I am sharing this with you. OK no I did not lose any clothing but maybe that's a good thing.


  5. I don't wear a ton of skirts and dresses for the very reasons stated above! I would constantly be walking about with my bum hanging out!
    Ok, so my story isn't funny per-say, but is did make my very happy when it happened earlier today. I adopted Cleo, a rescue kitty, a couple months ago and her personality is just starting to open up. She originally came from a very busy home with lots of other animals and people, which wasn't the best situation for her. When we first brought her home, she would spend most of her time hiding under beds and other furniture trying to make herself as invisible as possible. Today, when the mailman came to the door and knocked to drop off a package, Cleo (as she typically does) made for the nearest hiding space and gave a little low growl. I went over to her to give her a reassuring scratch to tell her it was ok before going to the door to pick up the mail. What happened next was so unexpected. As soon as I had my hand on the doorknob, Cleo was bounding from her hiding space (like kitten leaping!) anxious to peek her little pink nose out the door and check things out! It made me so happy to see my shy, skittish kitty acting so brave and curious. :)

  6. Oh just this morning! I had someone come with a truck load of batting, fabric, notions (parent's house was devistated in our flood -Irene) all these things were in the attic, so in excellent condition. As the young men started to unload, one very red cheeked fellow rushed to the house apologizing???? There might be kittens in the boxes. So we opened each box as they brought them in, looking for kittens that might have been 'hidden'. Lo! it was my two fur babies! They will get into anything and had investigated what was coming in those wonderful boxes. I laughed so hard and the poor fellows were very releived that they weren't dropping off more than quilting supplies.

  7. Ok so Im sitting here trying to think of something funny when all of a sudden I saw an eye peer around the side of my laptop(on my lap). I did a little mini jump, realized Kalli-cat was sitting on the footstool. And then just a few minutes later I did another little mini jump when fur touched my toes as she lay down on top of my feet. The really funny thing is it is usually me making Kalli-cat jump because she is a nervous Nelly who jumps at any small sound or movement.

  8. Ok, so y'all can question my parenting skills. When my kids were little we kinda thought the quaint little mispronunciations were adorable. You know, when they say "scetti" instead of "spaghetti". So, you kinda get used to them and your brain just interprets what they are saying so adorably (sometimes you just don't hear what else it might sounds like). Well, my daughter was about 18 months old and we were at a fairly nice, not very loud restaurant. She was well behaved enough to take her there and not bother other people. At 18 months old she had a clear understanding and appreciation for FUDGE.The restaurant was the kind that brought a desert cart out for you to choose what you would like. The table next to us was ready for dessert. They brought the cart out. My girl saw the chocolate cheesecake and started waving and pointing and saying, "fudge, fudge, fudge" rather loudly. (remember those cute little mispronunciations?) It sounded like she was saying another word. A bad word, with 4 letters that also starts with an F. We heard "fudge" so the more she said it, the more people thought we were letting her say the bad word. Yeah, crawl under the table kind of embarrassing. But really funny now (she will be 20 soon...and yes it kinda took that long to get over my baby's potty mouth...LOL)

  9. I don't have a long story to tell, but here goes. My little doxy whines if I don't set him on the drafting chair in my sewing room while I iron or cut things on my cutting table. He will jump up and down and cry until I put him in what I think he considers his seat!

  10. I have a 2 year old.
    He still takes naps- usually from 130-4 (nice eh?)

    yesterday he only napped for an hour- I could hear him playing but let him stay in his room.
    When hes "napping" and awake he doesnt even get out of his toddler bed.
    He must have ran out of things to do because I heard him calling "help"
    I went in - and he was stuck on the foot board of his bed, with his hands on the ground and feet in the air- I guess he was trying to reach the toys he dropped.

    So I put him back up right and tell him he is allowed to play and he doesnt need to stay in his bed- only in his room.

    I come back later when its time to get up and he is sitting ON his night table reading his books all innocent like :)

  11. Mary Poppins was traveling home, but due to worsening weather, she decided to stop at a hotel for the night. She approached the receptionist and asked for a room for the night.

    "Certainly madam", he replied courteously.

    "Is the restaurant open still?" inquired Mary.

    "Sorry, no," came the reply, "but room service is available all night. Would you care to select something from this menu?"

    Mary smiled and took the menu and perused it. "Hmm, I would like cauliflower cheese please," said Mary.

    "Certainly madam," he replied.

    "And can I have breakfast in bed?" asked Mary politely. The receptionist nodded and smiled. "In that case, I would love a couple of poached eggs please," Mary mused. After confirming the order, Mary signed in and went up to her room for the night.

    The night passed uneventfully and next morning Mary came down early to check out. The same guy was still on the desk.

    "Morning madam...sleep well?"

    "Yes, thank you," Mary replied.

    "Food to your liking?"

    "Well, I have to say the cauliflower cheese was exceptional, I don't think I have had better. Shame about the eggs tho....they really weren't that nice at all," replied Mary truthfully.

    "Oh...well, perhaps you could contribute these thoughts to our Guest Comments Book.

    We are always looking to improve our service and would value your opinion," said the receptionist.

    "OK, I will...thanks!" replied Mary....who checked out, then scribbled a comment into the book. Waving, she left to continue her journey.

    Curious, the receptionist picked up the book to see the comment Mary had written.


  12. I can't think of a funny story..I am not that type of person, sorry. But my son had a silly, cute joke not long ago. We were driving on the freeway by the new Burger King, and he said: Who is Burger King's wife? Dairy Queen! What can I say, I like dumb jokes. I would love to have the traveling stash visit!

  13. I can't believe I almost missed the Traveling Stash giveaway. I guess that's what happens when you go into hibernation for a week. Thanks for the opportunity to enter. Sorry, no funny stuff here - I'm really rather boring.
