Today has been a really good post day! A little while ago Judith from Rags to Bags held a pay it forward event on her blog. I was lucky enough to be one of the recipients of Judith’s generosity and today it arrived! 3 yummy goodies!!! Chocolate (always a winner), a beautiful crocheted flower brooch and fabulous little purse with a strap. It was so exciting to receive this in the post from an online friend all for just leaving a comment on her blog!! Lucky me. Thank you so much Judith I love it all!! 🙂
Here’s a little closeup of the brooch 🙂
Now I have to fulfill my side of the pay it forward deal. This is how it works:
1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people who comment on this post. It will be a surprise and it will arrive when you least expect it.
2. I will have 365 days to do it in. What’s the catch? To get a handmade present from me, you have to play too! This means YOU pledge to send a little handmade something to 3 readers of your blog. It doesn’t have to be quilty – just handmade.
3. You must have a blog.
4. Once you receive your “little something”, you must post about your Pay it Forward on your blog to keep the fun going – be sure to use the Pay It Forward badge.
So if you fancy receiving a little handmade something from me sometime in the next year leave a comment and I’ll send to the first 3 people to say they will take part 🙂
My other good post today came in the form of charm squares. I found this fabulous set of Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt on Etsy and I can’t tell you how excited I was!
I just love all of it! I can’t wait to get on and make something with it but will have to wait as I have a stack of projects to do. One thing that is getting nearer to being crossed off my to-do-list is my Brit Quilt Swap mini quilt 🙂 I managed to finish the top today!!! I am mightily pleased with it and hope my partner will love it.
If you leave a comment for me please do say whether you want to take part in the “pay it forward” otherwise I will assume you’re just chatting (which is fine by me too). Catch you again soon 🙂
