Pay It Forward...interested??????


Any one else interested????
I've got one person signed up...
?????????


Ok I have joined Pay It Forward on Peg's blog (thanx Peg for having me!)
Now it's my turn...

so now I need three people to play….

the rules are…..

1) I will make some goodies for the first three people who would like to join in…… It will be a surprise and will arrive when you least expect it.

2) I will have 365 days to do it in …………

Where is the catch? to get a handmade present from me you have to play too! This means you pledge to send something to three readers of your blog. It does not have to be stitching or knitting just handmade,
3) You must have a blog. 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 would like to play “Pay It Forward”….please leave a comment….

that's it...so would you like to receive something handmade from me in the next 365 days?

(rules are copied off Pegs blog!)

cheers Julz

who stole the weekend?

it's gone again!
Nothing on the sewing front to show as I worked on Saturday...
so that day was gone.....

Sunday was asbolutely beautiful...sunny, warm (yes warm)....
(even managed to take my jumper off)

I spent quite a bit of the day in the garden,
pruned all of my roses,
chopped back a few other bushes that needed it,
took Diva for a driving lesson,
picked YD up from a sleepover,
cooked breakfast for ED who had to work....


there are plenty of these out in the garden for colour...


and a few of these are starting to pop up around the place....

I think Spring is trying to come....

lovely!!!!!
