PIF finally

Pay it Forward. Remember me volunteering to do that. You know the thing I had a year to complete. Now, just where the heck did that year go?????  I had the idea, and had the fabrics, then something horrible must have swallowed em all up in my sewing room, because it vanished!  Can you imagine?

So I went for that bakers dozen idea. 13 months, after all it's close to a year now isn't it?

Last week I mailed off my 2 packages (finally). Paul and Lynne, I sure didn't mean for this much time to go by, but I hope you both enjoy your little surprise.


You know with all my trivet tuxedos, I just had to come up with a special trivet for you. When I stumbled across this fun pattern from Ami Simms.

That's Amore!

I knew I was on to something.


 This little guy made his way into the mix too.
After all, he fits right in.

So to round out the package, I added all the fixin's to make their very own pizzas. Nothing beats prepackaged pizza crusts, when your in a hurry!

 I hope you two enjoy. On pizza night throw in a beer or two for me. I just couldn't figure out how to ship them along too. 

Sorry!

  3. I got into a PIF and I think the lady dropped off the face of the planet. She does not blog anymore! But I still have two gals to send stuff to and another eight months to do it! :)

  5. Hello Lynne here, the thrilled recipient of the package. Seems even more special that I had forgotten about it. I now want to pay it forward so please come over to my blog at sewfarfromhome.blogspot.com tomorrow (to give me chance to write the post) and if you want to be a part of this I will draw a name from comments. Only request is that you keep this going. Joan the trivet is amazing -- Thanks you so much. I love quilty people

  7. Joan, The gift is AMAZING... I love it.

    I just saw this post today, as I did not do any blogging (or reading) last week. Timing just conspired against me with your gift!

    I posted your gift on my blog, as apparently did Lynn (I'm going to check hers out next!)

    Thanks Again,
    Paul
