Travelling Stash Box


The Travelling Stash Box made its way to my home recently, bursting with fabrics and ribbons, sparkly tubes and woollen strings!

I pulled the ribbon on top and it all came tumbling out. Heeeaven!

Bits and pieces from womens stashes all over New Zealand. I loved that every piece had a home once a pon a time, it had a destiny, a good intention, but somehow didn't quite make it. Instead, shipped off to another good home in the hopes someone else will love it as much as the original owner.

You could take anything from the stash and replace it with something of equal type / value.

Here's what was in the stash when it arrived at mine::


And this is what I took from it (mostly fabrics from Treena, who had it before me) and some orange yarn, remember when I said I couldn't find any anywhere!? ::



And here's what I replaced my takings with:: A meter or two of some fabric, along with a whole lot of off cuts of pretty cottons, ribbons, yarns and a set of aluminum crochet hooks.


Thank you so much to Cat for organising this Stash Box! I believe at the end of its travels when it gets back to Cat its contents will be given away! I'll let you know if / when that happens! In the mean time, hop over to Cats, she's organising another christmas swap (she doesn't ever stop!)

I've already made a skirt out of some of my new fabric and delivered the box to Debs and its back on its journey around the world New Zealand.
