Pay It Forward


I am joining the revolution! Well rather, I am going to do my bit in the quilting world to help Pay It Forward! Here's the deal...and I'm copying and pasting this...

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. (I really am!) 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! (I, Joanna, will try to have it done for Christmas) What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I signed up to do it on Karen's blog... http://www.cottonspice.com/CSblog/ and I can't wait to see what she comes up with! So if you want to do this, leave a comment saying that you want to do it, and then I will send you some questions to help me see what you do/don't like and what your 'style' is, and I will also keep an eye on your blog to get more clues ;) I can't wait to get started - it sounds like fun!
In other news, I have some photos to show you - yesterday I hung up all the framed quilts I had made on my walls in the living room, as well as the pumpkin tablerunner which serves well as a wallhanging too! You will see my daughter jumping in one of the photos - those of you with daughters will no doubt be familiar with HSM 1 &2 (if you don't know what that means then you don't have young daughters lol!) and she wanted to re-create the album covers by jumping up like Gabriella and Sharpay. Oh life is getting interesting around here!
And here is a photo of my son I found after he 'stole' my camera. He denied taking any photos - he blamed it on his little brother, but I happen to still be a little smarter than him, and I think the proof is in the pudding....
