'Pay It Forward' A Delayed Update...

Back in June last year, I received my 'Pay It Forward' gifts from Shez...
Of course then it was my turn to choose 3 ladies to receive a little handmade something from me, some time with the ensuing 365 days.

My ladies were Florence, Jacquie & Jeneta... I decided to make each of them a handy little armchair sewing caddy/pincushion for when they're doing some hand sewing or stitching in their favourite comfy chair.
Having posted the parcels in the middle of January & happy that they got to their destinations near & far, I can now share some pics.
For Jeneta
For Jacquie



















For Florence






Florence & Jeneta have already chosen the names of their recipients... Jacquie has been laid up with some health problems, & is on the slow improve, so I'm sure she'll be choosing some names soon.
No doubt the ladies will do a wonderful job of continuing the Pay It Forward fun!
