Pay it forward

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift/send fabrics or yarn to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
The pay it forward I'm in now I found on kviltstinas blog.I made a difference in my promises as marked.

So come on and join me.To give make you happy.

We have a tradition to take branchlets from the forest,branchlets without leaves ,and decorate them.We get green leaves in the end of May.Yesterday I was in a flower store and there they had painted ones.Love them.Colours and the contrast between snow and colourful things.The decoration is on my table but I couldn't get a good picture so I went out in the forest to get the right view.

February Challenge

February,for me a month of flu and tiredness but also some lovely houres doing cross stitch to the challenge I'm in
February-also a month focusing on memories from the past.
My childhood was in many ways very good.One thing I thought about was lovely blue flowers we sang about but I never saw them in reality but made in blue paper.Where were they?They were many kilometers from here.Made the memory in a pattern I found somewhere.

I was living near a forest I didn't love.I was afraid of the darkness and the dangerous thing I could meet there.And birds-I hated to learn about them.Crazy me.
Not until I met my DH I changed my mind.Here you find a lovely pattern with a bird.I love the free patterns she has,especially this.

I also remember the long winters.We often cut snowflakes in paper and it was so lovely.The pattern I used for this is

Here you can see what I have done.

I wish you a lovely start on March
