PIF (pay it forward)

I've been chosen by Kaye to participate in a stitchy PIF (pay it forward) exchange!  What does that mean?  Kaye offered a handmade gift to three people... and part of asking to be considered was agreeing to do the same.  So Kaye received a gift and was inspired to gift three more people... and each of those three (including me) will offer three gifts!  In other words, the one gift that Kaye received will keep growing by a factor of three.

Okay, that sounds like math, never mind. :)
The point is that the spirit of giving goes on each time!

It's your turn to get a handmade stitchy gift from me!  I will be making gifts for three people who want to be part of the PIF.  I will make and send my gift to you some time in the next 6 months. I stitch fast but I'm not a machine. :p

Here's the rules!

1.  Understand that you will be expected to offer three gifts to others if you participate.
2.  Leave a comment here with your email address so I can contact you. :)
3.  If more than three people are interested in the PIF, I will choose randomly.

I'll leave this open until the end of September.  Lots of time to decide if you want to commit! :)

And just so this post has a picture, have you seen the new Ink Circles design, Cirque des Coeurs?  Imagine this sexy thing stitched in white on a red background. (PTP Phoenix anyone??) Awwww yeaaaaah. ^^b


  1. Oh why oh why oh why did you have to post that Ink Circles design??? LOVE it. But I haven't even STARTED Cirque des Cercles!!

    I'd love to sign up for a PIF from you but I'm not sure I could commit to passing it on right now, so I'll have to skip it this time. =( Sounds like fun, though!!

    1. Because I'm evil? :D I seriously can't wait to get my grubby mitts on that bad boy, but I have GOT to finish something before starting another project. TWO somethings, even, so I don't just lazily finish wisteria and bust out a new WIP...

      Hmm, well, if you don't mind sending me your address, I do like to keep a RAK list! Email me at rahenna@rahenna.com if that's okay with you. :D

  2. Oh I really want to play! It can be any handmade gift I want to make right? :D


    1. Whoops, sorry I haven't replied yet! I think anything is good as long as you say what you're offering as a PIF in your post. Stitchy things are awesome but so are other handmade goodies!

  3. Like McKenna asked, just any handmade gift, or does it have to be something cross stitched? (I stitch slower than molasses sometimes.)

    1. I think anything handmade would be lovely! I'll do a stitchy thing because I'm pretty fast, but I don't want anyone to not participate because of the type of PIF. :)

      Oh, and if you did want to stitch, Kaye set her timeframe as 12 months. I picked 6 months since I stitch pretty quickly. So you're not stuck with that amount of time! :)

    2. Okay, I'm in!

      You probably still have my email. I still have yours. I'll drop you an email later.


  4. I want to play. :) I'm emailing you my email address.


I love comments! If you have a blog, leave me a link so I can follow you. :)
