Good Afternoon Everyone!!!
This week in TSB we have an update coming up shortly but I wanted to lead off with an extremely important question for those of you who are following these wonderful boxes as they travel across the States.
It’s the end of May and those of us who are parents knows that the school year is rapidly descending on us when we start thinking of all summer plans. It might include taking time out of our busy days to spend time with our kids and family. Maybe the open road is calling you to take a family vacation or stay-cation. Or in general life just seems more chaotic during those dog days of summer when we might be more distracted than normal. Whatever the case may be…
So here is the question that I REALLY need feedback on.
Should the Traveling Stash Boxes take a summer vacation too????
I have noticed that the TSB’s have been in rotation non-stop for many years and have also seen that responses for drawing the winners have been a handful at best. So how would the TSB take a vacation?
Well … I’m thinking what I would do is have the boxes come to my house for the during and once school goes back into session, I’d slowly re-introduce the boxes back into rotation just in time to have us thinking about those end of the holidays and swaps that we do and have us looking forward to a fresh look in our projects.
So leave me a comment about your thoughts on the subject. I would really like your feedback on the matter before my final decision that would go in effect in a short time frame (as in the next posting).
Well that leaves us with the question of where are they now. Known dates for winners will be in RED
We know that Box #1 is lost in never-never-land.
Box #2 – Crystoll at http://crossquilt.wordpress.com/ is currently taking comments on her blog and will be drawing a winner on Friday, June 6th so be sure to enter for a chance to have Box #2 visit you.
Box #3 – Was Me and it was mailed out this past week to Lisa of http://intheboondocks.blogspot.com/and should have arrived onto it’s destination. Did it get there? Highlights of Lisa’s give-away will added soon.

Now if any of this information is wrong please contact me as it looks like my last at the library was eaten and has disappeared. Along with the notes I made as I chucked them once I was done with them. The one time I tossed my scribbles… this happens. Go Figure!
Please remember to contact me upon receiving & shipping of the boxes at my yahoo e-mail address: quercus0828 at yahoo. along with any other comments or concerns.
Also I wait to hear you thoughts on the matter of the TSB summer vacation. ‘Til next time…
