Back last August I happened to look in on Chris's blog, Always Smiling, when she was inviting names for a lucky dip for a Pay it Forward (PIF) pressie. A week or so later Chris informed me that my name had been drawn and that I would receive a gift from her within 12 months. Last Saturday I received my gift, handmade and stitched by Chris and here it is:
Isn't it beautifully made and she has even embroidered strawberry on it.
Part of the "deal" is that I, in turn, should invite names which will be put into a "hat" to be drawn to receive something made by me, within 12 months. Winners to take up a like challenge. So, if you would like to take part in this just let me know in a comment. I shall in no way be offended if you do not wish to take part!
I'm off to Stratford on Avon for a few days tomorrow to help with half-term "minding". I'll be back on Friday although I will try to look in before then.
