Pay it forward ~ November 2013

Last March I commented on Lesley's blog, The Cuddle Quilter~she was hosting a 'Pay it Forward' and I thought that this was a super idea!  Well, I was one of the lucky ones that was chosen to participate!!!

Here is the beautiful navy and cream quilt that Lesley created just for me~





It's currently hanging in my dining room in the cabin.  It is simply GORGEOUS!!!

So....now it's my turn to PAY IT FORWARD.  I will randomly choose 3 people who comment on this post as winners and will create, over the course of the next year (or maybe 6 months??), something special for each of them.  I'm thinking a mini quilt or mug rug or pot holders...pincushion.....needlebook...well something handmade...if you have a preference or would like a certain holiday item, please leave that in your comment.






The catch is.....you will also need to commit to PAY IT FORWARD too!  Post on your blog after you receive my handmade gift so others can see what you receive and have the opportunity to pay it forward too!







Be sure your email address is available for me to contact you for your mailing address.



Are you up to the challenge??  Let's spread a little handmade happiness together!!  You have until Thanksgiving morning, November 28th, to post!  Good luck!

Laura, I'm so glad the little quilt arrived safely and that you have found a special place for it! Your projects are all so beautiful I especially love the little birds...too cute! I will pass on the PIF this time around so that others will have a chance to participate. Thanks again for finding a home for this little Nova Scotian quilt!

wow!!! This is a lovely idea, Laura!!! If I will be one of the luckiest lady..... I need to have your colorful birds miniquilt! I adooooore this pattern and the colors you have chosen are my favorites, too! But you know, I would be soooooo happy with the dresden pot holder or your VW mug rug or your VW needle book!! You know also that I love HR prints! thank you for sharing your talents and I would be happy to pay it forward, although I don't have a blog, only my facebook and flickr page! So I don't know if I can participate for not having a blog! Many hugs from Brazil!!!

I'd love to pay it forward Laura, I did this a few years ago and sent out 5 aprons. Great way to spread some creative cheer.

I remember joining one of those over at Heart of Charnwood last December. I should be receiving my pay it Forward gift sometime next month, I suppose lol, and then it will be my turn, but of course I would love to have the chance on another :)
