Crafting it forward

A couple of days ago this pink padded envelope landed on my doorstep. I just knew it was for me straight away :) Sinclair over at the wonderful blog Nature with Me sent me an adorable handmade pincushion shaped like a birdie and lovingly embroidered. It came wrapped up in a beautiful piece of lace fabric which immediately went into my special fabric box - I'll definitely incorporate it into one of my bags. Thank you so much! I love my little pincushion, and as I mentioned in a private email it is far too precious to stick pins into! So....I hope you don't mind, Sinclair, but I altered it slightly by attaching a bit of ribbon to hang it up in my office! In fact, I used the ribbon that you had tied around the birdie! I really enjoy looking at it from my desk :) Now it's my turn to 'craft it forward'. I'll be making something from fabric obviously. Not straight away, but definitely before summer. I can't guarantee that you'll like my choice of fabric, but I do hope so! The recipient will be chosen randomly from all commenters of my last three posts. I will reveal the recipient's name next week, so keep tuned!

  6. Cute birdie! The colors remind me of a hex sign. I wouldn't be able to stick pins in it, either. :)

I created the list because I was sick of wasting time trying to find people's Ecards. You and everyone on the list has their Entrecards in an easy to find location. Stop by and check it out.

  16. THis is a really sweet craft it forward. I currently have one going myself and I am just about to complete my last handmade gift. I have been having trouble finding handmade pay it forwards that were given and received so I just created a flickr pool to showcase the lovely work and would love to have this and your items added to it.
