New Pay It Forward Round

I am probably crazy, but I went and signed up for a new round of Pay It Forward from Vonna's blog. As I laid out a schedule for the year, I see that my remaining ones will be finished soon... so, taking new names for items to be stitched a little later this year... You probably know how this works: The first five of you that leave a comment here on this post requesting to participate will receive a handmade item from me. I will send it to you sometime this year :-) In return, you will have to post in your blog that you are taking five names and you will gift those people in return. Interested??

And... a little bit more of Serenity tonight... it seems to be pretty slow going, especially the border, but it is also a very pleasant stitch.

Happy Weekend all- we have a nice January thaw approaching us and I am very excited to now be breaking away from the very bitter temps to more reasonable winter temperatures... for now, at least :-)

Stitched on today: Winter House Exchange project, and Serenity

Carol, I would love to participate in your new PIF round. Something new for me so I may have a question or two on how it works. Thanks! Serenity is coming along beautifully.

Serenity is lovely, Carol.

Good luck with the PIF - I signed up with Vonna, too. :) I haven't had any takers for my PIF as yet, though.

You won't be surprised when I decline, I think?

Love Serenity. Does this border go all aruond the design? Wow! That's quite a lot of work!

Can I please sign up for your PIF? :)
Happy new year sweetheart. I hope 2008 will be a wonderful year for you!

Vonna said...

Serenity is looking just so wonderful!!! But I must say...you think it's growing slowly? Probably just to you dear heart because I've seen it just blooming in no time at all!

Carla said...

Great progress Carol!

Dani said...

Great progress on Serenity! I am going to pass on the PIF since I don't think I'll have the time this year. Maybe next time :)

Jen said...

Beautiful work.

Mary said...

Carol, I'd love to be part of your PIF if I'm not too late! This is new to me as well, so there may be questions later on... I can't wait to get started!

Karoline said...

Serenity is looking gorgeous Carol and your exchange for Sylvie is lovely.

Michelle said...

Serenity looks beautiful! Stay warm!

My mom is SO looking forward to the January thaw. She said she'd put her bikini on if it actually got up to 40 degrees. LOL!

I think you are crazy doing another PIF! I'm just going to enjoy watching the beauties you produce from the sidelines. Good luck!

Carol - I have missed reading your blog lately and have missed so much. Your little dragon is simply the sweetest and the snowman - to die for. My DIL is a snowman collector. Thank goodness she is not a blog reader or I would be in trouble. Your Serenity sampler is clipping along nicely. My PL is doing well. I am loving this stitch.

There's such a lot to take in. As expected, you've been so busy, lol.

It usually every few days that I visit (not because I don't like it here, quite the opposite, lol....it's my laptop that can't cope with a script and keeps freezing so I can't get at the goodies to see what you've been up to or comment).
Anyhoo, each visit there is so much I've missed and such a lot of pretty stuff to see since my last visit and I just wanted you to know that even though I might not pop up much in the comments.....I'm still here at the back, taking it all in, *grin*
