Pay It Forward!

I love a bit of Pay It Forward. I recently saw this on Nati's Blog *and* I was one of the first to comment so I will be receiving something from her within the next year. Yay! Love postal surprises. So...
Pay It Forward Chart

Here are the "rules" (as taken from Nati's blog):

1. I will create a crafty gift for each of the first three people who comment to this post. This is a surprise, and will arrive to you anytime within the next 365 days.

2. In signing up for Pay it Forward, you are committing yourself to the project...someone pays it forward to you, so you pay it forward to others! Just post this, or something similar so others can get involved. Basically you will create your own post where you create gifts for 3 people as well.

3. You need to have an active blog of your own...(or some way to post up your Pay it Forward info like a flickr, pinterest, or Facebook account). Basically you'll need a place to announce your own Pay it Forward and to post some pics of the process.

4. After commenting on this post, post something similar on your you can spread the pay it forward love. I will email you asking for your mailing address (and the online address where you are posting your Pay it forward info) so I can get your crafty treat in the mail. Please make sure your email address is visible on your profile or leave it in the comment.

So what kind of things do you need or want? Are you going to leave it to my imagination? I would love to know what colours you are into at the moment... just leave a comment to this post, letting me know anything about you or the things you like... I will be stalking you for a little bit to get an idea and then get crafting for you!
oh hi
(This is me stalking you.)

International Rainbow Charm Square Swap

This is a heads up about a swap I'll be running in December and the New Year.
Moda Fabrics at The Cloth Store
The swap is described on the new page I've added to my blog which is in the lefthand blog bar.
Sign-ups don't start until the beginning of December but you can leave me your email address so I can remind you when that comes around.
Questions? They should all be answered on the swap page but leave me a comment if not.

Framed II

I ended yesterday looking for those Bernard labels. It then occurred to me to print my own. While looking for the originals I found a sheet of cotton with a paper backing ready to go through the printer.
Printed Fabric Labels
Surprisingly easy to do really. And then a rotary cutter and a ruler later...
Fabric Labels
At Festival of Quilts I got some glue to use with applique instead of double sided fusable stuff and it works really well. The fabric is a little translucent but considering how cheap they are to make I'm not really bothered by that.
Fabric Label
Here are all the combinations. This one is for me and actually had an outing last night as a little change purse. The fabric is called "Dysfunctional Family" and I only bought it for this panel, which is one of many.
Red Purse Frame
This one is for a swap.
Tiny Silver Purse Frame
Then these three are for xmas presents:

Bronze Purse Frame
In fact...some of these are already finished...

Bet you can't guess what kind of swap it is. And then look how those labels turned out.
Frame Purses
Pretty cute huh? I really like making these and can see me making more once I get paid again.

After yesterday's post I decided to be a bit more proactive and so in place of the email Pooch and I met up to talk today. I was not at my best after a fun night out in Richmond yesterday but we had a good talk and agreed a basis on which we can move forward again. We are agreed though that neither of us can go through much more of this stop-start relationship type thing. But then we both want things to work out so we'll see how we get on.
You Are Going To Be Alright
