My Pay it forward surprise came in the mail

Last march I got chosen  from Lesley  for a Pay it Forward handmade gift .

She blogs at The cuddle quilter. She has a fascinating blog and you should take the time to check it out.

When I got home last Friday I found a large envelope from Lesley on my table. Boy was I excited.
She wrapped it so nice with her label around it and a beautiful card. 

So off the paper went and this wonderful hand quilted doll Quilt appeared. 

Isn't the Quilt just gorgeous. I love it. Thank you so much Lesley for making me the lucky recipient for this Wonderful Quilt.

Now it will be my turn and your opportunity to participate

Here are some rules.

Rule 1
I will send a handmade gift to three people that comment on this post and get chosen.  I will have a whole year (365 day's) to do so. The gift will be made by me and will be a surprise.
I had a few month to decide what to do and there are a few ideas in my head. I think I will stick to what I really like doing.
And if you have followed my blog you should have figured it out . Lol

Rule 2
To sign up to pay it forward, you need to commit to pay it forward too! Post this, or something similar on your blog after you receive my handmade gift so others can get involved. Be sure to keep the cycle going!

Rule 3
I will email you and asking for your mailing address so I can get your little handmade gift in the mail. (remember I have up to a years time to do so. Please make sure that your email address is visible on your profile or leave it in the comment.)

so, are you up to it. come on lets spread the joy of a handmade gift. 

lots of quilting hugs
