Playing "Pay It Forward"

Sunday was sure a fun day! Pam and her hubby Bill stopped by for a visit. They drove up from Hayward to see the local quilt show and stopped by afterwards so Pam could visit and also present me with her "Pay It Forward" surprise! It was so nice to finally meet Pam as we frequently email each other and comment on our blogs.

She made me this pretty tote bag with two of my favorite colors.

The little quilted tag hanging on the side has a cute Wedding Ring quilters pin on it that she picked up for me at the show. But, that's not all! She also made this cute Christmas wall hanging!

Pam really played it forward and beyond with me!--what wonderful surprises!

Now, it's my turn to "Pay It Forward". Here is how Pam explained it since I've never played here.

This is an exchange based on the concept of the movie "Pay It Forward" where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on.
Here are a few guidelines: I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this "Pay It Forward" exchange with me.

I do not know what that gift will be, but it will be sent within the next six months. What you need to do in return, then, is "Pay It Forward" by making the same commitment on your Blog. Please remember I will need an email address to correspond with you.

Thank you Pam for being such a wonderful Friend! Enjoy your upcoming retirement!

Do you have to be a quilter? If not count me in.

If I had realized that picture of us was going into your blog, I would have smiled and stood up straighter! Thank you for such a nice write up of the bag. I had so much fun making it for you. I hope you will enjoy it.
