about this time last year I joined a pay it forward from pink green, the idea being to promise a gift within a year if the recipient passed on the promise. I made little felt flowers, posted them off, and promptly forgot about it, so I was very delighted when this gorgeous little parcel landed on the doormat yesterday. A pin cushion, needle case, oh so pretty beaded keyring, and a tiny babuskha brooch. Thanks so much Cathy.
Also on the door mat were these labels
I've been dithering for MONTHS about whether to order some, and from which site, I liked these, but they were more expensive than the cash ones which I went for in the end. As for the colour choices, well they were endless - in fact that's another reason I went for the cash site, less choices - easier to make my mind up. Then there was the choice of font, text, logo or not, and then how many to order....... you can see why it took me so long. I'm quite pleased with them, but they're darker than I expected, I hadn't accounted for the fact that the blue thread would be solid on the back, and show through, and they're more mushroom than cream, but I've just had fun sewing one in a bag - show and tell tomorrow - when I might finally get round to finishing Lisa's tag, and join in with Nancy's shoe week.
