Pay It Forward (PIF)

Recently on Shari's blog she had a PIF sign up. I was fortunate enough to be one of the first 5 to sign up and am now obligated to Pay It Forward.

This is the way it goes...
The first 5... yes five... people to comment on this post only, within the next 10 days, that they are willing to PIF....Will receive a gift made by me.

There is a CATCH.. PIF

1-You MUST do the same... post this on "Your blog" and pass on to FIVE folks as well.

2-You will receive this gift within the year.

3- I'm getting ready to start stitching my gifts to the 5 people.

4- If you don't want to Pay It Forward please leave the space for someone who would like too.

5- It MUST be something handmade/created by you in your favorite technique. It doesn't have to be a large gift, just heartfelt and it would help if you would be happy to receive it yourself.

Can you believe this?!

My good friend Shari sent me some stash! Another good friend posted a comment on my last post saying that all of these generous people are 'angels' but Stash Goddesses! She is completely correct! So, that is what I'm saying from now on lol. I've been sent another Stash Goddess!

All of these fabrics, I am pretty sure, are recycled or upcycled, however you want to call it lol. I love this because it helps me in what to look for when I go to the thrift stores myself. Not to mention, look at that cool vest! And the mans shirt in the first photo is so cool, it has palm trees and a hammock! I would have never thought to look for stuff like this. And the silk ribbon is so beautiful!

In this picture there is a piece of hardanger that can be used on a crazy quilt block! I told her I don't know that I want to use it for that lol. It's too pretty! I would like to learn it at some point also! And, look at all of the beautiful lace motifs, lace, hankies and those are yo-yo flowers!

And the lace she sent....OhMyGosh! There are laces that I had no idea was out there!

Isn't it gorgeous?!

The two on the bottom on the above photo look vintage. I could be wrong...what do I know lol.

And these awesome trims and threads! The packages on the left she found at the Dollar Tree. Full of beads that can be used in a block! How creative!

Thank you Shari! I can't say enough how much I appreciate all of your generosity. Not only sharing your stash but your time in mentoring me in this wondeful art!
