Pay it Forward...

Each morning, I spend about 30 minutes reading blogs and drinking my coffee.  This morning, I stumbled upon this idea... So, I am participating.  I saw this on Joan's blog Moose Stash Quilting.

Here are the details:

1.  I will make a little something for the first 3 people who comment on this post. It will be a surprise and it will arrive when you least expect it.

2.  I will have 365 days to do it in. What's the catch? To get a handmade present from me, you have to play too! This means YOU pledge to send a little handmade something for 3 readers of your blog. It doesn't have to be quilty - just handmade.

3.  You must have a blog.

4.  Once you comment here, you must post about your Pay It Forward on your blog to keep the fun going - with the Pay It Forward badge. Also, feel free to join the Flickr group to see what else is being sent!

I am going to make a slight change for my followers...  The first three to comment will receive something from me regardless of whether or not you have a blog.  If you don't have a blog, agree to make something for 3 charities.  Or 3 things for one charity.  (Project Linus Quilts, Quilts for Kids, Your local homeless shelter, etc.)  In order to adhere to the rules set forth by those who started this, I will make something for 3 bloggers.  So, if the first three are bloggers, then I've met the obligation.  I just don't want any non-blogging followers to feel like they can't participate.  So, will I make 3, 4, 5, or 6 items?  That depends on who responds to this post!

SO... Who wants to Play?


  1. I would love to play but tried to one year and no one signed up on I am opting out but think it is a fantastic thing to do...also about the non bloggers too...that is awesome!

  2. I would love to play. I don't have a blog and haven't been able to do anything like this before. I just wanted to know if benefits for fundraising for cancer patients, or fire departments raising money for a new firehouse would count for charity quilts? I have made quilts for Linus in the past, but the group I left quilts with has stopped meeting. Again thanks for this opportunity to play. Bonnie in Iowa

  3. Bonnie... Absolutely that would count! Any charity will be fine. Look for an email from me later this evening for some more information...


  4. Paul do you still have one more slot? I would like to play. Thanks!

  5. Hi Paul. I just wanted to let you know that this is still making it's way around. I posted it this weekend.


I enjoy reading your comments and welcome feedback of every kind. I read and try to respond to every comment.

Unfortunately, there are yahoos out there who make it cumbersome to allow anonymous comments. Every time I have tried to open up my blog to anonymous comments I get SPAM entries and once it starts, I start receiving 1 or 2 per hour within only a few days.

So, if you want to comment, please use Google ID or OpenID, or WindowsID, all are free.... OR send me an email and I will post your comment myself.

Thanks for leaving a comment!!
