I am so blessed to have made some wonderful blog friends! I would love you to go and visit the blog of a really special lady. She sent me the goodies above! Wonderful coffee, yummy chocolate, luscious fall colored fat quarters...and best of all, a hand-quilted quilt! Please go see Paula at http://www.alattequilts.blogspot.com/. She has a wonderful blog, and a precious heart. Thank you Paula! She participated in the fall into fall giveaway!!

And please...you should not miss greeting Marilyn at http://www.marilynpiecebypiece.blogspot.com/! She sent me this pay it forward gift.. A wonderful card, pin cushion in just the right colors, and a hand-made fabric basket! (I must make some of these)! What a wonderful gift, and she is so thoughtful.


Speaking of pay it forward...when I signed up for this with Marilyn, I was quite new to blogging, and did not know really how it worked. So...now that I do, I would love to invite you to join me! I will send a hand-made gift to the first three people who tell me they would like to participate. Then you pay it forward! Within a year, you do the same thing...won't you join me? Only those who say they want to do it are on the hook, other comments are welcome too!

The hospital is laying off people! It is so scary...I am so grateful for my job. Hope I get to keep it!

OK, enough is enough! I refuse to go up a size in pants. Ridiculous! I must exercise more and eat less. Sound familiar? I deserve to be healthy! NOT indulgent...must stave off diabetes and heart disease that are on both sides of my family.



Hope everyone has a most wonderful day!!

Great gifts! I agree PIF is a terrific idea! I am in one right now and will be working on mine soon.

Nice goodies! Maybe after the first of the year I will do a pay it forward, but right now my life is just too demanding. Sounds like fun though.

great goodies:) Can you tell me how PIF works...

Patti said...

OK - I read all the comments and unless I missed something you've had only two people commit. If that's true, then I'd like to be the third person. I've been wanting to do this for a long time but had to wait until I had my UFO's at a more reasonable distance from finishing. Please let me know if I'm a yay or nay as far as participating goes.

Julie, I am so glad you liked the fabric basket and little pillow! The PIF was fun to do!

What lovely gifts you've received, Julie! It couldn't happen to a nicer lady.
As for going up a size in pants, I truly understand. I have gone up a size, and I'm not a happy about it, but carbs call my name and I answer the call (almost) every time! Heavy sigh......
