Pay it Forward

So I am joining the party. I was reading Tini's blog and then checked out the Madhatter and saw this PAY IT FORWARD blogger idea.

I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

This is a great idea - it is a casual crafting swap - and it will motivate me to try something new...i hope!

And since I seem to be a joiner these days (read: Ravelry and Facebook) I figured I would do this one too.

And though this is a knitting blog, I am thinking that it will be a sewn item...knitting needle case....linen napkins with embroidery...mini art quilt (okay i have never made one, but why not try one now?)......it means i can try out lots of things and see what happens....

lint from my chair wheels

hopefully not this! :)

ps- thanks for all the nice comments about my sweet pea! It is so easy to make him cute when he is so damn cute to begin with! (no i am not biased AT ALL)

hmm... so I'd love a creative gift from you, Marietta, and I already have some sort of PIF on my blog where there are still 3 spaces free, and of course my gifts will be handmade... so do you think I can join, or would that be cheating?

Marietta said...

oh i missed that on your blog! and no it is not cheating!

oh! can i play? or am i excluded because i have the distinct honor of being your pal in offline life?

i LOVE this idea. so much so that even if we don't do this, i'm stealing the idea for my blog.

(ps- you could gift me a pie since i am clearly a failure in that area. ha!)
