Sometimes life just does not go quite the way I have planned. I am guessing you might be able to relate; this seems like a universal happenstance. As I mentioned on July 15th, I had a pattern printed and included in the August Stash Builder Box: Bundle Buster. Amanda from Stash Builder Box very kindly shipped to me an August box so that I could get a copy of the printed pattern and share with you all about the box. This is where life did not play out the way either Amanda or I had hoped: my next door neighbors sold their home and the post office began forwarding all my mail in early August. After about a week and a half I finally figured out what was going on and got the problem resolved, but for a week and a half to two weeks (eep!) my mail was forwarded to who knows where or returned to sender. By the time it all got sorted out, the opportunity to order the August Stash Builder Box had closed, I was going on vacation, Amanda was returning on vacation… and yeah, life people. Not always to plan.
So imagine my surprise when I get home from my vacation to find not just one (finally found and delivered) August Stash Builder Box, but TWO! Amanda generously shipped another box to me as soon as she found out the first was “lost” in the mail system. This is especially fortunate for you: this August box is sold out and no longer available for purchase, so I am giving away the second box to one lucky reader (more details below). Whoo!
So here are the contents of the August Stash Builder Box that I got to add to my stash this week and that you can enter to win:
- Fabric – Junebug Collection from Dear Stella (Foral Texture, Net in Mustard, and Demi Circles)
- A set of 10 Clover Wonder Clips in Neon Green
- A small spool of 50wt Aurifil thread
- Stash Block of the Month pattern: Card Trick
- Stash Pick of the Month: Bundle Buster by Quilting Jetgirl
- A “Measure Twice Cut Once” pencil, and
- A Kind bar
Needless to say, the Kind bar did not last between the photograph and the writing (let alone publishing) of this blog post.
