Back Home and Traveling Stash Box




I am back home and I couldn't stitch for a few days.  I have been either shopping or cleaning, and when I thought about shopping I was too tired.  When I got home, found out my brother bought a Kreuig coffee machine.  I am thinking "Cool a fresh cup of coffee everytime".  The first cup came out perfect but after that,the darn thing won't brew.  My brother cleaned out but nothing. I went to Walmart and got myself a new coffeemaker.  We threw the old one away already.  It works perfect and I found mine favorite coffee flavor on the shelf too, and with my new Dale Jr cup, I am a happy camper in the mornings now.

I did some stitching of my UFO on the last week I in VA.  Here is a picture what I did before I left.

I  worked on LHN Peppermint Twist that Thursday.  I didn't do much. My computer got a virus on Monday night and Thursday I was catching up.  My friend is a computer nerd and he was able to to take the virus out, which I am so grateful.  If he didn't fix it, I would be still be without a computer.

On the train, you would think I would be stitching alot with a 10 hour ride.  I was up at 5:30 and I was tired and just couldn't concentrate until in the afternoon.  I just looked outside and listen to my mp3 and I think I took a nap too.  Last night after chatting with my Stitcherhood group, I got the stitching bug in a big way, and I had to stitch while I watched Top Chef.  Here is the picture after the train and last night. I am almost done with the dragon.  However, I have to put it down to stitch a bookmark this weekend and start on Lavender Blue so I can get the next part on time.

Traveling Stash Box

I have won the Traveling Stash Box in November from Julie and Yes Dear.  With the holidays, getting behind on my stitching in December, and going on vacation, the box has been sitting here.  I am getting tired looking at it or tripping over it.  These are the items that are going in the box.  There are a lot of goodies and anyone who wins will have a hard time choosing.  You get the box, you take out what you want but   you need to replace what you take out.  If you take 5 items, than 5 items need to go into the box from your stash.  If you want a chance to win this box, comment on this post.  I cant afford the international postage rate, so it will be going to someone in the States. I will pull a name on Feb 1.

More pics of my friends' pets.  I miss them so much already,lol.

Nice progress on your stitching, even though you said you haven't done much. I'm surprised about the Krueig coffee maker. My boss has 3 of them and thinks they're awesome.

Just how big is this stash box?

My Best,

Your stitching looks great! I really love the little dragon. :o)

I'm doing Lavender Blue also. :o) I pulled it out last night and that's what I'll be working on through the weekend.

All the furbabies are so cute!

Vicky, your stitching is beautiful. You did manage to get some stitching done while on vacation. And I don't know if I would stitch on the train or not. I think I would be watching outside most of the way. I would be interested in getting the traveling stash box. Looking forward to seeing more of your progress. Happy Stitching!!

Too bad about your coffee maker!!!! Just goes to show that even the really nice & expensive machines can be a lemon. Your WIP's look great!!!!

Vicky, looks like you have a love for fur-babies too. I have 4, 2 dogs & 2 cats ranging in age from 12 down to 3.
I used to live in VA, but now in MI. I haven't been on a train since I was a little girl and I went with my grandmother.
I would love to have my name added to the hat for a chance at the traveling stash.
Thank you.

The travelling stash box looks fun! I'd love to be included - and hopefully be able to re-home some things I will probably never stitch! Very nice WIPs!

I don't have enough stash to replenish anything, so please don't enter me for the traveling stash ....

BUT, your brother should contact Keurig customer service. They are very pleasant to deal with and will either be able to troubleshoot the machine or will send out a replacement part or whole machine if necessary. That is obviously defective - I have a Keurig and adore it!

I visited via Oakhaven Designs group. Peppermint twist is looking good. Is that hand dyed fabric? I had not heard of the traveling stash box before. What a neat idea. Throw my name in the ring would you? Thanks =)

Great progress on your dragon piece! It's such a cute design. :) Zoey is so cute! :) Did you receive the parcel that I sent to you on December last year? I received a note from you on December last year and wrote you an email. Did you receive it?

Have a wonderful week, Vicky.
