Ready to Pay It Forward

I'm so excited! I have my three Pay it Forward people. I can't wait to get started on their surprises.

I got a call from my sister's sister-in-law yesterday (also known as my brother-in-law's sister). She has four bolts of "fall-colored Moda" for sale (her description) for $1.00/yard. You know I'll be dropping by her house on the way home from work this afternoon.

Have a great day doing what you love.

Holiday Inn round 4

I finished Holiday Inn just in time for my Jo's Little Women Club on Saturday. I started this one a little lukewarm about it, but now I truly love it and can't wait to quilt it.

I wish I had a design wall, or at least a better way to photograph quilts and tops so they lay all nice and smooth. I tried the floor, but wasn't happy with the result. I think I need a new camera, too. My pictures come out very washed out. Sometimes I can play with Picasa and get a better result, sometimes not.

Please see my Pay it Forward post below. I'd love to make something for you!

Pay It Forward

Would you look at all of this adorableness! The lovely Carol of Carol's Crafty Creations just sent me the most wonderful Pay It Forward gifts. I got a Carol-made apron in a cupcake print fabric, a cupcake cookbook and a side-by-side cake pan set that makes a giant cupcake cake. The book was wrapped up in an adorable Holly Holderman fat quarter. My daughter and I are trying out the pan tomorrow night. I'll post a picture if we don't devour it first.

My husband brought the mail in this morning and I was late to work because of all the time I spent opening the box and oohing and ahhing over the gifts!

So now it is my turn to Pay it Forward! If you are unfamiliar with the process, it works like this: the first three people who comment on this post will receive something hand-made (and maybe a little something extra!) from me within the next 365 days. In turn, you promise to pay it forward and make something for three people who comment on your blog. It's way fun.

I hope you post a comment; please do! I can't wait to get started.
