I can finally tell you who my little green quilt was for. A couple of weeks ago I had an email chat with Margaret the fantastic organiser of the Four Seasons Swap. I explained that I was very disappointed that I never received any thanks for the Autumn tree quilt I made and wasn't sure whether to sign up for the Winter swap. She then told me that the woman that received my quilt didn't send her partner Beth one. After reading her blog Modern Jax, it appeared that it was the second swap this unlucky girl had signed on for and both times she had received nothing.
So I HAD to make her a quilt - it made me feel good to make it and send it and made me feel better about my little tree quilt disappearing into nowhere! Go on over and visit Beth and say hi, she also has a very cute felt ornament tutorial to try.
I recently had the very good fortune to 'win' a Pay It Forward treat from Cathy at Pink Green. And I now get to offer the same to three of my lovely readers. So....
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
On the crafting front I am still working on lots of little bits and pieces for Christmas. Some of them I will be able to show you and some probably not as the recipients read this blog and I would rather surprise them.
So instead I will show you my ornament swap prototype which will definitely be changing.
I like her but want to make a couple of changes. She's a little too big and I'm not sure about the black and white.
We've started our Advent stockings, have put the tree up and this year we even have some lights on the house! I still don't feel remotely organised for Christmas and I also have Daphne's 2nd Birthday party on the 15th but thanks to my lovely Mum I have a fairly childfree day on Thursday to get some stuff done. I'm even getting a haircut which will be the first for some time.
Enjoy your week!
