Pay It Forward

A few months ago, I signed up on 2 blogs to Pay It Forward. Not really thinking much of it. The plan is for them to send out 3 handmade crafts to reciepients with in a year. Then in return I will send out 3 gifts and so on and so on. Well yesterday, I recieved my first Pay It Foward. It is a beautiful shawl along with a very nice postcard from Miss Jan in England.

Obviously the picture does not do any justice. First of all, I was surprised by the detail but then the fact it came from a stranger in England! How cool is that!

I've been in contact with my next Pay It Forward and she's hilarious. Calling me a Bag Lady is going to take on a whole new meaning now. So Miss Judy is sending this:

I was probably suppose to let it be a surprise but who could wait!!! Im so utterly excited. I could just about scream!

So I think I'm ready to start my Pay It Forward now. I have one person already, Miss Stephanie. So the next 2 people that leave comments, will recieve a handmade item from me. I have not decided what it will be yet. The only catch is you have to promise to send something out to 3 others.

Neat idea. I enjoyed meeting you in quilting class. I think Valerie and I are going to sign up for a few more classes. I am hoping to finish my quilt sometime in the next week.
