I have decided to join my very first PIF. I joined Rachel's PIF and I copied this from her blog:
Here's how it works:
I will send a stitched handmade item to the first 5 people who leave a comment on my blog under this post. You will receive it within 365 days; you have my word. The only thing you have to do in return is Pay It Forward by making the same promise on your blog! Once you sign up, I will be emailing you for mailing address information and will keep an eye out on YOUR blog to see what designs, colors, designers you like.
Please do sign up; this will be my first time to Pay It Forward and I look forward to making new stitching friends near and far.
Please note, this is in addition to the giveaway I mentioned in my last post. I will be doing the giveaway as soon as I have made up my pieces - may be a week or two. But I want to leave this post up for a bit to give people a chance to sign up for the PIF.
And here's an update of Patchwork that I have worked a little bit on. I do enjoy doing this one but I find it slow going using hand dyed threads that you can only stitch oone cross at a time on.
And here's some new stash I got in the post yesterday. The first is the Loose Feather's no 26 chart which is lovely and such a lovely colour of fabric. I feel so ashamed as I haven't even started one of these yet. I don't know whether to just use DMC or the stated flossies they give.
Here's some fabric I bought from Jaynes attic. Now when I sent in the order I hadn't heard from Jayne about it which is unusual for her so I phoned her up. She was actually in the process of moving her store!! I told her that if she didn't have the colours I wanted in then she could send me alternatives that were similar. On her site, if you spend £15 or more then you can click on this link that says "add me for 1p" and she will normally send you a thread or something of that value. Because she only had two out of the four colours I wanted in stock, she sent me two alternatives and instead of sending me thread for the "add me for 1p", she very generously sent me two more fabric pieces!! How generous is that!! So here they are:
They are a mixture of Sugar Maple Fabrics and Polstitches.
So all in all a good productive stitchy week for me. Have a good weekend, xx
