Pay it Forward.

The idea is that random acts of kindness are given without expecting anything in return. Just passing on the kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same and forming a never-ending chain of kindness.

That's what this is about. But it isn't only kindness it is also a means to connect with our fellow crafters. To network if you will and to spread our work (instead of having it sit in our house where only friends and family get to see it).

Justine from Sew Justine Sew! has posted this on her blog and I thought it is a great idea. As the second commenter on her blog post I will receive one of her gifts, hurrah.

And this is how it works:

You'll have to comment on this post and the first 3 people who comment will receive a handmade gift from me within the next few months. But those 3 commenters will also have to post the idea on their blog and commit to making a gift for the first 3 people who comment on their post and so on and so forth.

I can think of a whole lot of things I can make. This will be so much fun.

So please pass on the word and spread some kindness.



  1. Oooh! This sounds like fun! Count me in, although my skills are only beginner - I'll do my very best, though!

  2. Great idea! I love to join in.

  3. Oh yay, one more and then there's three. And no worries Jodi, your quilts are gorgeous. every gift will be appreciated, I am sure. I will have a think about what I can make for you. oh how exciting.

  4. I think this is a fab idea, i'm going to nip across to my blog now!

  5. hurrah. we have 3 lucky gift recipients. I will let you know once I have the 3 gifts ready to send. I think I'll draw who gets which one. so watch this space.

  6. Nadine, really??? (clapping hands) That's great! I have been meaning to post it on my blog, I'm just not very blogger-savvy, yet! I'm having trouble posting pics from other people's blogs, so my darling daughter is going to help me with the Pay it Forward in posting it. I only have FIVE followers, though! But they're VERY GOOD followers, including you! :-)
