pay it forward {do you want to play?}

 I received a lovely surprise in the mail.
I unwrapped this gift from Anthea as part of the Pay It Forward idea that I read about on Anthea's blog Hibiscus Stitches.

Do you want to see what Anthea made for me? Of course you do!

Right, this is the outside. Do you know what it is?
Here it is with one side opened out. 
Ta da! It's an armchair sewing caddy. I love it!!
Anthea took note of the red, black and white colours of my needle book.
 Look how perfectly they complement one another!
Anthea also sent some other goodies. I love them all!
How cute is this? I think I'll wind some pretty ribbon on to it.
Aren't I spoilt?
I am definitely going to be spending some time in my favourite chair!
Thank you Anthea!

Now, would you like to receive a handmade gift from me?
It's time for me to Pay It Forward.

This is how it works.

What I will do:
I will send a handmade item to three people who would like to participate.

I will choose the three people randomly (you will need to be a follower of my blog and you need to have your own blog!).

I won't tell you when I am sending your handmade item - it will be a surprise. This means that you will need to provide me with your postal details. And then wait!

I will make and send your item within 365 days.

What you need to do:
If you put your name forward you pledge to make and send to three of your own blog followers.

You must have a blog. If it's reasonably up to date it will help the person making for you (me!) get a feel for what you would like to receive.

Items don't have to be 'quilty', just handmade (and they don't need to be big and/or time consuming to make).

Once you have received your gift from me you must post about Pay It Forward on your blog and keep the fun going.

So, do you want to play? If so, let me know by leaving a comment saying so!

I'll randomly select three people from those who tell me they'd like to participate. The three names will be announced on 4 February.


  1. I'd love to play along! Thanks for the chance! :0)

  2. I love the idea of pay it forward but best not count me in, I'm a bit overloaded with commitments at the moment. The caddy you received is really wondedful. I love that Anthea made it to match your needle book.

  3. Anyone who receives your lovely sewing / craftwork will be shouting with joy!
    Have fun with this, Jeneta.

  4. The package you received is lovely. I am not allowed to join any swap this year until I finish my projects, it's self-imposed. I am a little envious of the person who would be so lucky to have something made by you!!


  5. I would love to play along after reading the responses and seeing you don't have all three as of yet. The caddy is wonderful and I am sure you will get much use from it. Have a great day!


I love to read your comments and will always endeavour to reply. Thanks for visiting - I am truly delighted!
