Pay it forward and aren't I lucky!

Look what turned up in my mailbox a few weeks ago- a fantastic neck cowl and fingerless mittens, crocheted beautiful (one of those skills I admire so much and am yet to master- or even umm, close to master!) with special wool (the details of which I don't have on me at the moment- sorry Mary- feel free to add in the comments if you want) and let me tell you these are a fantastic addition to the morning 'bus stop' walk with my kids because this Winter has been rather nippy at times.

 Ages ago I signed up for Mary's 'Pay it forward'- that basically meant that I said 'yes please' when she offered to make something for two of her blog readers- she bent the rules for me, because at the time, I didn't have a blog and I am willing to bend the rules too- so feel free to comment if you don't have a blog (assuming you agree to the rest of the 'rules'!)

Thanks so much Mary, I feel thoroughly spoilt and I am the appreciative recipient of your skillful work.
I will send three people who leave a comment on this post a handmade gift within the next 365 days- if there are more than 3 comments I will draw three numbers randomly on the 14th September- that gives people a few days to comment.
I am willing to post anywhere in the world, so don't let that stop you commenting.
The catch is that you have to have a blog (or choose 3 people to make something for) and be willing to do the same thing....

So if you'd like to participate, then leave me a comment and make sure to leave me a valid email address so that I can contact you for your address, etc.PLEASE also tell me who you would like the gift to be for eg. your daughter/son/yourself/whoever and their age/size if applicable this will help me figure out what to make!
So if you're game then go ahead and comment!
(Most of this was copied off Mary's blog, who copied it off Peta's blog!)

  1. I don't want to participate - I'm already playing - but I wanted to add a comment to say how beautiful the gloves and cowl are. Just gorgeous. Great stuff Mary!


Thanks for adding your comments, I love reading them and appreciate your effort in writing them xx...
