Breaking news.......... Watch this blog - there's a very special 50th post coming up this weekend!
I read about the Paying it Forward Exchange on Whimsical Knitting on Sunday morning, followed by Jacquie's blog in the evening and it intrigued me.
So I am "in" as they say. I wasn't going to do this till October, but hey ho, I can PLAN my projects now in readiness for me to start in October.
It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
I like the idea of six months to complete projects. Mine might be knitted, they might be stitched, but they will all be hand made by me with love.
I can only have three recipients - so I guess it's fastest fingers!
I'd just like to thank you all by the way for the lovely comments that have appeared on my last post, and I will make sure mum knows that her garden was a "hit"
