Surprise Pay it Forward

I  spotted this great idea on Teresa's blog Quilting, Stitching and Sew On for a surprise Pay it Forward.
This is how it works.

I will send a surprise gift to the first 3 people to comment on this post.  This gift will be made by me and I will send it sometime within the next year.  Exactly when you will receive it will be a surprise ( it will probably be a surprise to me too :-D ).

Of course there are some rules in this game.  Here it goes:

1.  I will make a little something for the first 3 people that comment on this post.  It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).

2.  To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too.  Share the giving love on your blog by promising to send a handmade goodie to the first three people that comment on your blog post.

3.  You must have a blog.

4.  After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love.  If you haven't posted in 48 hours then the next commenter will be chosen.

I don't know if three people will even get around to commenting on this, but I will say that if you find this post 6 months from now and only 2 people have left a comment,  you can still be commenter #3 and get a random goodie from me!  When you comment I will email you and get your address and then you will get something from me sometime before next December 2012.  What do you think of this idea?  I've never done it before but I sure would love to try it.  Come and join the fun!

One Flower Wednesday

I finally finished a hexie!  Life happens when you're trying to quilt:  work, my car, radon remediation, my daughter's car, problem with a car title, and tomorrow a furnace /ac will be put's been a busy month!  I need to get back to making hexies and, of course, the last-minute finishing of Christmas gifts.  Maybe I should start making gifts in January..............
