Thank You Christina!

Thank you Christina! I received my first Pay It Forward item! It came at a time where a smile and a warm fuzzy feeling were needed and much apprciated.

Now I have to get busy on the items for my PIF. I know I have a year, but I am a notorious procrastinator, and if I don't get on it now, then I will be scrambling later, and I don't want to do that. I am a big thread crocheter, so more than likely it will be something done in thread.

While I wait for my camera batteries to charge, I am off to start another batch of my dyed threads. My last batch did pretty well, and if I don't get on the stick then I am going to run out of inventory.

Thanks for the kind words and support for my blahs. They are getting better. I guess blahs are kind of like gaining weight, building up gradually, and you can't git rid you can't get rid of it overnight. I know everyone has to deal with both the blahs and weight occassionally, so it is good to know there are others who understand. One day at a time!

You're very very welcome! When I saw the pattern, I fell in love with it and thought it would be perfect for you. I think pineapple doilies are gorgeous but have never attempted one, so it was a real treat to do a pineapple in ww yarn!

I can't wait to see what you got from Christina. I'm glad to hear that your blahs are a little better. I find myself jumping into and out of those blahs. But man sometimes it is really tough. So I wish the best for you and don't be scared to ask for some help. I would always be happy to send a card or a smile or anything. I am also trying to finish my PIF so I can get them out of the way. I finished two. Well I have you have a great and re energizing weekend.

How does the Pay It Forward work? (I mean, I know the principle from the book --and movie-- but in this context, how does it work?

Nota...Here is how it works...I posted this on Nov. 10, '07:

The way it works: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog for this post. You don't have to be a regular commenter or even a blogger member, as long as you can get me your address by e-mail.

I don't know what you will be getting yet, LOL, but as the rules state, you will receive it within 365 days. Most likely it will be sooner than after the Christmas rush.

The only thing you have to do in return is PAY IT FORWARD by making the same promise on your blog/site. Come on and join. This will be fun if you love getting nice things in the mail.

...Now the 4 ladies that responded will receive a handmade gift from me. I have them listed on my side-bar so that I have a reminder, and can make a note as to when they are sent.

I AM a blog stalker, haha! I actually didn't know you'd put the pic up yet though because I've had a little cold and not been on the pc nearly as much. The scarf looks really nice against your blue shirt.
