Pay It Forward

Yesterday I received this "Pay It Forward" gift from Christina Cameli -- a quilted potholder, some vintage #8 needles, and a lovely pair of earrings. Isn't that a splendid surprise to get in the mail! Thanks a bunch Christina!

"Pay It Forward" means that now I get to make a little gift for the first three of you readers who comment on this post. [ I do get a whole year to make my creations, if I need that long.] So go ahead and make a comment!

One photo from the Grand Rapids Women's Chorus concert last Saturday. I am at the extreme left, announcing the next song, "The Peace of Wild Things". We had a hilarious change of costumes after the intermission, but Charlie said that the camera battery died right at the crucial moment!

My sewing room is slowly migrating to other spaces and compacting into one half of the room so that our laundry can be moved into the closet there while we are away in Cornwall. I am trying to do some purging at the same time, but I only have one day left to finish the move. Must give the construction guys an area for their work!



Going to Cornwall for 17 days
Lots of wild phlox on the hillside
Getting other plants in the ground before I leave

Oh, I love these dresses for the chorus! BTW, I'm afraid I blatantly stole your "gratitudes" idea some time ago--it is just too good. I've been trying to think of a different word, but this one is really the best. Thanks for the attitude inspiration!

I'm a follower and I receive the feed to your blog every day; thanks so much.
I love the idea of Pay it Forward. I don't have a blog, but I may randomly choose 3 women in my Yahoo group or 3 bloggers who I've "met" through my blog reading.
Enjoy your trip!

Glad to read about your doings before you go off on that wonderful trip. I'm still sorry I couldn't go, too.

I'll keep you both in my prayers as you travel and soak up the beauty of Cornwall.

Many blessings,

Well it looks like I'm #4 to make a comment, but that's ok. I am pleased to meet you and I will be back to check on you quite often. I have family in Michigan and someday I would like to see a little more.
Take care
