Pay It Forward #1

I mailed out my first PIF gift this week and forgot to take a picture of it! Drop in at Katrina's blog to see it. As many of you know, I enjoy stitching Hardanger too, so I sent Katrina a small Hardanger doily, stitched in shades of pink (Needle Necessities overdyed pearl cotton) and used the leftover fabric and floss to make her a small scissors fob.

While you are there, take a look at her first finish for the year. She personalized the Bent Creek Spring Snapperland by adding a cute little old lady to the chicken coop block to remind her of her grandmother!

Ooh, Cathy, your hardanger treats for Katrina are exquisite as always - I just adore both of them, but especially the fob ... I really must do some more of that myself and put my hardanger books to good use! Your quaker exchange is absolutely stunning too (of course I'm ever so slightly biased due to the colour haha) ... beautiful work on your behalf as always :D
