Pay it forward

I have finally sent off all 9 'Pay-it-forward' gifts.

One of them was given a little earlier than the others as it accompanied a birthday present back in March.
Kate is a lover of both horses and pincushions so I made her this to add to her growing collection.



In addition, she received her PIF gift ...


A covered notebook with a tiny hand-stitched hexagon flower as embellishment.



The remaining 8 were sent off last week.


Each with a matching notecard.


I hope they are enjoyed by their recipients and I look forward to hearing about their own PIF's.

In other PIF news, I received a gorgeous bag from Kerri a while back and it has taken me an age to post about it.

Thanks so much Kerri.. 
I love it and hope you are continuing to have a wonderful family holiday!

Hope you all have a great week.


Andi :-)

Andi those notebooks are gorgeous. So sorry I didn't catch you at the show. We ended up getting there around 2pm so I figured you would have left already. Will have to make another trip sometime soon ... after I pay off the credit card ;)

I think NINE PIFs would send me into paroxysms of conniptions (assuming such a thing was possible). As usual, handled with great finesse...
