A Bit of Inspiration and a Challenge is what I needed.......

In my blog search for a bit of inspiration to rid me of this lull I am in  I found Clover and Violet. They presented an interesting challenge, a challenge to  join a Pay it Forward group. This  sparked my interest and moved those creative thoughts off the couch and into my stash. I have been wanting to "try out" new quilting patterns, design techniques and embellishment strategies. What better way then the cute little mug rugs or the doll quilts. Jennie offered me the canvas and the purpose. Hopefully I will be among her first three and will receive, what I am sure will be an amazing gift when I need it the most  and least expect it...

Kelly from ,A Plain Path, was the hook Jennie must have needed to accept the challenge. Thanks Kelly and Jennie for getting me off the couch and back to the studio.

Here are the details(These details are taken straight from Jennnie's blog!!):
  1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people who comment on this post. It will be a surprise and it will arrive when you least expect it.
  2. I will have 365 days to do it in. What's the catch? To get a handmade present from me, you have to play too! This means YOU pledge to send a little handmade something for 3 readers of your blog. It doesn't have to be quilty - just handmade.
  3. You must have a blog.
  4. Once you comment here, you must post about your Pay It Forward on your blog to keep the fun going - with the Pay It Forward badge.  Also, feel free to join the Flickr group to see what else is being sent!
I will be making something with a bit of whimsy for each of the first three people to comment on this post and agree to play along {but I must get your e-mail address so I can reach you}. So, join in and help to keep "me" off the couch and creating....
