My First PIF

I'm participating in my first PIF thanks to Stina, so this is the rules...

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog
So is anybody up for some fun...??Make a comment and say you want to play along and I will add you to my PIF!!

Things I've made

I thought I'd steer clear of competitions for awhile and blog a bit more of my crafty stuff.
Here's some teddies in waistcoats that I made for the school fair, very quick and easy.
I created this journal so I could write about specail events or things I just want to remember. It's not a day by day journal.

Quilt for a friend

Thought I'd share this quilt with you. I made it a couple of years ago for a close friend of mine. Because we don't live close to one another I wanted some little angels watching over her!

And while I'm at it, here's a picture of my dog "Lucy". She's a minature schnauzer and is just over 1 year old. She's a smart dog but rather silly at times.

B**bie Buttons

What a fun week I had last week being creative.
Helen Stubbings of Hugs 'n Kisses asked me to create some little projects using her new "B**bie Buttons". She's taking them all the way to the U.S. to give others an idea of when and how to use these gorgeous little buttons. My needlework isn't perfect as I was rushing to have them complete in time. I also made a little wall hanging and a card which aren't shown.
Helen's work is beautiful, she's going to blow them away in the U.S. with her talent!!
