Paying it forward

Here is a giveaway with a difference ....

I am participating in a "Pay-It-Forward" gift exchange. I signed-up to play through a post from the delightful Mill at Maybe It Was Patches.

Want to play too?

I will send a handmade gift (within the next 365 days, that's a promise!) to the first three people who comment on this post. All that you must do in exchange, is offer the same to 3 more people from your own blog. Oh, and you need to leave a traceable link or e-mail address, so that I may contact you for postal details!

Visit here if you would like a bit more information about the ideas behind Paying-It-Forward.

I have traced some of the history of this exchange (in reverse chronological order), in case you'd like to say "hi" to any of the previous participants:
  1. Maybe It Was Patches
  2. Sarah C
  3. Violaceous
  4. Momilani's Moments
  5. OldTimeMeArtist aka Grinnin Gramma
  6. Can I Be Pretty In Pink
  7. The Secret Gardener
  8. Steph's Cup of Tea
That's as far as I got before realising that Argy and Bargy probably needed dinner!


  1. Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog! How cool to meet via the "pay it forward" work! ;-)

    I am learning to sew, and I will enjoy your blog!

  2. Thanks for popping over to my blog, would love to know how you found it :-). The "pay it forward" sounds like a lovely idea.. can I join in? Will pop the details on my blog so 3 more people can join the fun.

  3. I like the idea but I won't make you send something to Canada because the postage would be insane. I really like the photo in this post! Cool fabric!

  4. Aw..darnit...missed it. I guess it's fair enough, since I am already waiting for another PIF I wasn't too late for ages ago. :lol:

  5. That paper is gorgeous!

    Thank you so much for letting me know the pouch arrived OK! When you get the chance, would you mind very much leaving feedback on Etsy?


Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing what people have to say. Leave a comment if you like.
