I am enjoying the blog hop for the 5th Bead Soup Blog Party, and in addition to all the beady inspiration, I discovered a fun game of Pay it Forward inspired by the movie of the same name. (It’s a lovely movie in case you haven’t seen it). The idea is that someone does something nice for you and in return you do good deeds for three NEW people, so the circle widens.
Here’s how to play along:
- I’ll make something handmade for the first 3 people who comment to this post. What I make will be a surprise and will arrive to you when you least expect it. Doesn’t everyone love a surprise?
- I have 365 days to make and deliver it to you. But there’s a little catch, to get a handmade gift from me, you have to play too! This means you take the pledge to send something handmade to 3 of your blog readers. It doesn’t have to be a quilt, just something handmade! Easy right?
- In case it wasn’t obvious in #2, you have to have a blog.
- Once you comment here, you have to post about Pay it Forward on your blog and keep it going!
So wherever you are, please comment (I’m not afraid of international postage) and please join in to share your handmade loveliness 🙂 Make sure you give me your email address if there isn’t a way to contact you through your blog.

Oh i love a surprise! i knew there was a good reason I stayed up later than I meant to just didn’t realise it was so I could be first to comment here! I also love to give things away, have a blog and love to do good deeds so count me in!

rats you have comment moderation on – maybe I’m the fourth! (obviously this doesn’t count as a pay it forward entry I don’t want to be greedy!) Cara
Nope, you are still first 🙂 And I was terrified no-one would comment.

Hi Cate, Can’t figure out your email but you are definitely in for my Pay It Forward. Have already seen that you have posted this and moving forward. Just email your address to me. And guess what? My daughter is living in the UK for 2 years.
