Pay it forward

A while ago Hadley, at Flying Blind, posted about a great project she had joined. We all know that if someone does something nice for us, it's nice to pay them back, but this idea twists that around, and instead you can pay it forward! I do something nice for someone, and they do something nice for someone else, and they ... You get the picture

I was too late to join :-(

But one of her successful PIFs was Victoria from Boutique Uniquely. I follow Victoria anyway, so I waited and waited, (with a bit of stalking just in case ....) and I got to be one of her PIFs

How it works... Hadley will make something for Victoria, Victoria will make something for me.  It will be a surprise and it will arrive when I least expect it. And I will make a little something for the first 3 people who leave a comment (here on my blog) that they'd like to play. And those three people tell their friends about the project, and make them a little something. A bit like a chain letter (I've tried postcard ones, recipe ones, book ones, knickers ... None ever worked) but this works the other way, so it WILL work!

So, you can get a handmade present from me, you just have to play too, and Pay It Forward! This means YOU post this same information on your blog, and pledge to send a little handmade something to 3 readers of your blog.

It doesn't have to be quilty - just handmade.

Once you receive your "little something", you must post about your Pay it Forward on your blog to keep the fun going - be sure to use the Pay It Forward badge (*)...and please only opt in if you can commit to keeping it going :o)

So, do you want to play?
