Blog Friends are some of the BEST

Yesterday really was a great day for Mail
and surprises from Blog Friends.

 In addition to what I posted about yesterday
I also received these wonderful St. Patrick's Day labels from Cheryll

I have my thinking cap on for something to make to ensure I use them :)
thank you Cheryll.

Next up was a package from Fiona with one of her special little bags just for Miss Lily.
Fiona, Lily LOVES her new bag. It has not left her side.

Fiona also sent me a thread catcher with is getting a workout next to my machine
and a couple of chocolates that the girls got to before me :)
 Huge thank you Fiona

At last (I ordered this book back at the start of December),
 my North Pole Book has arrived.

I haven't had a chance to have a good look yet, that is on today list :)

And lastly is this wonderful bag from Susan.

Susan had a PIF post on her blog last year which I took part in.
It is perfect for me and will come in handy for sure.
 Huge thank you Susan.
Thank you ladies, you have all spoilt me and Miss Lily.

Now it is my turn to fulfill my side of the "pay it forward" deal. 

Here's  how it works:
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 to 

3 readers of your blog. It 

doesn't have to be quilty - just handmade.

3. You must have a blog.

4. Once you receive your 
"little something", you must post about your Pay it 
Forward on your blog. 

To keep the fun going - be sure to use the Pay It 
Forward badge. 

So if you'd like to PIF, best the first of three to leave a 
comment on this post and sometime in the (not too 
distant) future, you'll be receiving something 
handmade by me! 

Please make sure you can be contacted by email :o)

hugs, Sharon
