OFW and Pass It On Box ready to travel!

Ah yes, today was February 1st, and instead of snow and ice, the temperature was in the upper 60's, so I went for a long walk in the park with a friend.  We haven't had much of a winter at all and I'm sure not complaining today.  While there aren't any flowers in bloom at the park, there are several in my house!
Two of these are for the Inchy Swap, and the others will be incorporated into my flower garden.

PASS IT ON BOX is ready to leave Maryland.  This box originated with Brandie at abc last Saturday.  I was a little amazed when it showed up at my house on Monday!  The USPS isn't usually quite that speedy.  I stopped what I was doing to open it and look at all the goodies.  I took out 2 books, a little coin purse, and a small bundle of homespuns.  I put 3 books back in, and some fat quarters.  I expect to add a few more magazines before I mail it out.  Here is a copy of the rules from Brandie's blog:

How would you like your name on this mystery box? I won't tell you exactly what's in it, but I will say there are more books and patterns then fabric.

First a few rules.
You need to be a blogger, so that you can "pass it on" to another blogger and keep us posted as to where it's going.

You must be willing to ship it on to the next person.

You have to part with leftovers. Things like orphan blocks, books you have no use for, fabrics that just don't float your boat. Maybe a sewing tool you don't use. You don't need to buy anything, just gently used leftovers.

Everything you adopt needs to be replace with something you don't need.

So there are the rules. Still willing to receive it?
If so, leave me a message and I'll pick a green winner on Sunday.

Good luck you thrifty quilters!
And I hate to add this part, but because of the weight of the box, I will only be able to ship it within the US.  I'm planning to take a short vacation starting next week, and If I get a mailing address in time, I'll ship it out before I leave.  Just leave a comment on this post if you're interested in playing.

Contentment is planning a trip to sunny Florida!       Sunny

  2. I have been intrigued by this box for a while. Sign me up! Have a great vacation!

  3. How I would love to walk with yuin the park Sunny...
    Your flowers look lovely this week.
    How many do you have now???

  4. What a great idea! I love a good mystery :)

  5. It you were really lucky someone in Florida would request the box and you could hand deliver it. Wouldn't that be fun? Have fun on your trip, are you visiting relatives or just for fun? Although I don't know why you are going there instead of here, we would have more fun!! hehehe

  6. Lovely flowers! Can you believe this winter? I hope it's not an indicator of what summer will be, ....don't forget to pick me up on your way to FL, lol!

  7. Beautiful flowers once again this week. Receiving the Pass It On box sounds like fun. I have a lot of stuff just gathering dust that could go into it.

  8. Would love to have this box to add things to it and pass it along. It feels like the beginning of summer here if Florida, wishing it felt more like winter time though.

  9. This is the first I heard of this box (tracking the other 3) and could certainly 'swap' some lovelies.

  10. I'd love to have the box visit my house. I have some goodies to send and I'm sure there is something I'd love to have.

  11. I would love to have the box visit my house. Thanks for the opportunity.

  12. I would love to play and receive the box! I am close to Maryland too--only in CT! I have some great items to go into the box!

  13. Count me in. This would be so fun to do.

  14. Crazy weather...We had 20+ inches of snow in Central NY last Monday and by Wednesday it was almost gone already. I'm waiting for the buds to come out on the trees!
