Pay it Forward Fun!

So I am following Nicole @ Sew Daughter and am going to "play" Pay It Forward. I am mostly using the same rules she set for her fun time -

I promise to send a surprise gift to three people to comment on my post. This gift will be madeby me and sent sometime before  July 10, 2012 . I

Of course there are some rules in this game. Here it goes:


 I will make a little something for 3 people that comment on this post.

 It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time between
Jan 1, 2012 and July 10, 2012 
(my birthday)

To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too.

1. Share the FUN on your blog by promising to send a goodie to 3 people that comment on your blog post.

      If you are not a "crafty" person, you must promise to send something fun to your 3.

      If you are crafty send something made with your own two hands,
-don't despair  if you don't have time to make something-
then you can send a goodie box
          - fill it with crafty things
-stuff from your stash
-stuff you will never finish - think UFO.

2. You must have a blog. (leave me your blog address & be sure I can respond to you)

3. After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love.

I will leave the "Fun" open until November 1, 2011 (my brother's birthday). At that time I will pick my three giftees (is that a word?), check to see that they are playing and will contact them.

Hugs to all of you!

Been a While - Now Some Fun

Well, once again time has gotten away from me:) Too busy for my own good I guess.

The oldest GS has been playing Fall T-ball - he loves it so much and is pretty good for a 6 year old. That takes a couple of nights a week - but it is well worth it!

Our newest GS (aug 29, 2011), with Mommy and Daddy in tow was here for a week. At 5 weeks old they don't do alot, but MeMaw sat and held him anytime he wasn't eating or PaPaw didn't have him. Having a baby in the house again was pretty cool!

Summer is camping time too - every weekend we spend with good friends, eating, telling stories, and sitting around the fire. (yes we have fires now matter how hot it is)

So there has not been alot of crafty things going on right now. I did go to my first meeting of the Bluegrass Quilters Guild this past Tuesday - what a great group of talented and friendly ladies - I can't wait for the next meeting!

While I was there I heard about the Quilts of Valor, then today I saw the Jan 2012 new releases over at Green Fariy Quilts - I fell in love with the Moda Prairie Paisley II - so perfect for a quilt for a service woman. Anyhow, then I had to find a pattern, surfing I found this quilt - kisses and hugs - at Amy's Creative Side - made by Nicole @ Sew Daughter. Waiting to find out about the pattern so I can order fabric. I promise I will post updates!

While I was at Nicole's blog, I saw a fun idea - Pay it Forward Fun - I decided this would be a fun way to connect with my (few) followers. Check the next post - I will have the details there.
