Craft it Forward

My friend Heather is doing this and I thought it would be fun. So here it it...

It's based on the movie "Pay It Forward". I will send a handmade gift to the first 5, that's right, only the first FIVE people who leave a comment on this post! All of the gifts will be made and delivered sometime within the next year. What you need to do in return is craft it forward yourself by posting this on your blog (or Facebook), and promising to make something for 5 other people within the next year. It doesn't need to be anything elaborate - even something as simple as a plate of cookies will suffice!

Now that you know how it works, if you'd like to participate please leave a comment below. I will will even let you choose your item from the following list:
Hooded Bath Towel
Earrings and a Bracelet
Hair Bow
Hair Flower
Receiving Blanket
A home made treat by Me :0)

So leave your comment and craft if forward.

It seems every year around Christmas time I decide that I need to make someone a quilt. I never intended it to become a yearly thing but I really enjoy it. It got a little better this year when my mom let me borrow her fancy quilting frames. She told me I could just keep them at my house because I quilt more than she does. They sure make things easier. This quilt was put up for an activity day service project. We didn't get it done so I started working on it. Lainey and Lilly kept begging to try. So I showed Lainey what to do and to my utter amazement she picked it up immediately. Lilly cannot be left out and had to give it a try as well. Lilly didn't do quite as well but what can you expect she is 3. I think this will become something I will treasure and love to do with my girls in years to come. I am excited I have some material left over and will be making 1-2 more quilts this year.

P.S. This picture cracks me up so I thought I would throw it in there. Yes this is Gordie
