TOO OFTEN WE UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TOUCH, A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A LISTENING EAR, AN HONEST COMPLIMENT, OR THE SMALLEST ACT OF CARING, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO TURN A LIFE AROUND

Mail Call...


"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"

First Class Mail

My whimsical tribute to my hubby who works for the USPS. While we all thought that E-Mail was going to put an end to the USPS as we know it, it did not! Yes, changes have come, but only so much can be done via the Internet. A gift from Carol at Carol's Crafty Creations found it's way to my mail box last week. Yup, it was sent First Class Mail. :o)



The fabric is by 3 Sisters for Moda - Peace on Earth for Christmas! I'm thinking this will be a fun "Christmas in July" project. The colors are perfect for me and the pattern, Twilight, is a Little Scraps from This & That design by Sherri K. Falls of Minnesota! Carol, thank you so much for your kind giveaway gift.

You Know What This Means...

The first quilter who leaves a comment with me will receive something quilted, something made by me especially for you.  Then you will pay it forward to however many others that you would like to pay it forward to, at least one...I signed on at Carol's Crafty Creations.

By signing on, my commitment is to make and send a quilty gift to the first quilter who posts a comment to this post with your request to join this exchange and a promise to pay it forward to one or more people who will then promise to continue this paying it forward.  I'm changing my Pay It Forward to be that you pay your quilty gift forward once you have recieved mine. The time frame is within 365 days - WOW - that's a long time, I need that!  

So remember, if you sign on for this, you must commit to Paying It Forward by announcing your commitment to those of us who will be quilting for you by posting your intent on your blog...I know, it sounds legal and binding, lol, pun intended!!  Then you will pay it forward.
