Pay It forward and stitching update

Pay it Forward:

It's simple as this: The first five people to respond to this post (via the comments section) will get some form of "art" made by me. Please post that you want in on this and then email me at Poohcorner1114 @ yahoo dot com with your name and snail mail. Also please put in the subject line Pay it forward so I don't think its spam and delete it. Think of it as something to look forward to getting in the mail. It will be original, made by me, but it may not be immediate, as I haven't made them yet. I am not sure what it will be.There is a catch, of course, the way this works is that if you sign up, you have to blog this as well and continue sharing.

Okay now stitching:

This little guy is going to my mom as she loves owls and collects them.

And those of you who have been following my blog should recognize this cat sampler. I had finished it but not made it into something and since I liked how the owls came out I did the same thing with this one. I think I will send it to my older sister as she is a cat lover. :o)

And this one I had accomplished him a few years back but never made him into something and when I saw this material I loved it for this so tada! Kiley has already claimed him as hers, lol :o)

And my final picture is a biscournu I started but i screwed up and made the outside first before making the design and as I hate frogging I left and just improvised on the inner border so now it looks retarded. I'll probably just do the back and put it into my basket of smalls and no one will ever get it or see it, lol.


Thank you all for the wonderful comments, I feel a little better about my biscournu. :o) The cat Sampler is by Helga Mandl designs and was in The Gift of stitching magazine issue 12. Theres a link in the right hand side of my blog that will take you to the magazine. :o)

Great stitching! Those critters are lovely. Seems to me all your stitching today is either an owl, a cat, a bear and couple of butterlies! :)

All your finishes look great! I'd love to be part of your pay it forward. I'm e-mailing you about it now.

Great finishes Heidi.
Sorry I can't sign up for your pay it forward but there are five very lucky people out there.
Wow - what an amazing stash you have ordered. I immediately fell in love with your little chair and went on to the web-site to check it out. Would you believe I thought (hoped) you would be buying it as is. I don't think I will attempt making it but I'm sure looking forward to seeing your's.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Heidi!! I'd love to be part of your pay it forward! Will send you an email. It'll probably take me years (slight exaggeration) to make 5 things for others but it's a challenge! Love your finishes!

Very pretty finishes. I especially like the little owls, they turned out adorable.

Here are my sites.

Your finishes are so cute. I love that Winnie the Pooh. Great job on them.

Leeny on Saturday, February 10, 2007 6:52:00 PM said...

Very very cute, my favourite is the cat sampler, even though I'm more of a dog lover! I'm sure your mom and sister will love their gifts, and of course, we know Kiley loves that Pooh cushion! Great work :)

Wow, you've been on a "finishing spree"! I love them all :)
I don't think your biscornu looks retarded, but the word retarded made me LOL, my friends and I used that word for everything when I was younger...brought back good memories :)

Stitchingnow on Sunday, February 11, 2007 5:31:00 AM said...

I love all the finishes but I have to say the Cat one is my favorite.
Your Biscornu does not look retarded at all.

Lili on Monday, February 12, 2007 1:55:00 AM said...

Nice finishes, Heidi! They look great! The cat sampler's on my to-do list: it's too cute!
Take care!

Wow, you've been busy... LOL
Love the owl, it's an all time favourite of mine.
Who's the cat sampler from, though, I don't think I have seen it before. It's so sweet! And don't worry, you're biscornu will look great finished!!

Heidi, your blog is springy and looks so nice. We're expecting a big snow storm here in Illinois USA today, and I'm loving it! I see you also like snow. I'm enjoying looking at all your smalls and reading about all your stash buys. Congratulations - very happy for you! Nothing like a stash haul to sweeten life. I love the owl ornament. I did that one for an exchange and liked it so well, I've thought of doing one for myself, but alas.... too many other things calling louder, LOL!

Hi, got your email about my pif, you got the last one :)

Will let you know as soon as your surprise is on it's way.

I counted 4 for your pif, does that mean there's still one up for grabs?

If there please :)

Heidi on Thursday, February 22, 2007 7:17:00 AM said...

Silver thistle your number four, I still have one spot open so whoever wants it, email me your snail mail and put PIF in the subject line. :o)
