Pay It Forward...The gift that keeps on gifting.....

Love this idea....absolutely love it!

Okay - so you are anxiously awaiting what the idea is all about - but of course you are!

I shamelessly took advantage of daughter's blog that brought to my attention the gift that will encircle the world....or so I hope!

The first three people who leave a comment on my blog will receive a wonderful gift - sometime this year. Simple enough? Ahhhh - but there is more! You must pass this gift on YOUR blog....

Without regret, I shall simply borrow the rules from daughter's blog - with a few unknown-to-you edits....

*The gift will be something I have made just for you - not something stored away to be brought out now
*Package will be mailed sometime during this year
*I'm one of those craft-it-all people - so who knows what the heck you'll get....
*Sure - you can regift it.....that's the neat thing about receiving a gift. It's YOUR gift
*Yes, I will contact the first 3 people who leave a comment - and then you'll need to send me your mailing for the weak-in-the-knees people who do not want to share a mailing address....sorry, but I know no other way to send the gift to you. I'm not much into driving to a specified location and dropping package off next to the big red sign.
*You must offer the SAME on your blog - offer a gift to the first 3 commenters. Yes, others DO this on Facebook, but I'm a fan of blogs - so this consider this a BLOG Pay it Forward.

Don't you just love this?

And yes, I DO quilt and YES I am quilting.

Pincushion Mania

Ever had moments when you wonder "what the heck am I doing with my time?"

The photo is just the tip of the iceberg as to what has been filling my time lately. Pincushions. They're growing in number - daily. I don't know why. I finish one and the next one is started immediately. I'll watch episodes of Bones (am now up to Season 2 - gotta love Netflix) and by the time the credits roll after episode #2 on the DVD, I've completed another pincushion and am contemplating the next one.

In the meantime, fabric that has been cut out for quilting blocks lay patiently on the cutting table. Sewing machine quietly sits on the table waiting for the chance to create the blocks. Latest quilting magazines lay untouched on the desk.

So what could this possibly mean....and what in the world will I do with all these pincushions....

Be very wary of unsolicited packages that may come your way..... this is the year of the invading pincushions.


In the meantime, I hope I quilt.
