Pay It Forward


I am doing my first PIF gifts and have taken up another PIF from Sew Prim Khris Blog http://sewprimkhris.blogspot.com/ This concept is like the movie called Pay It Forward with Kevin Spacey and Haley Joel Osment in it. The 12 year old boy has a school assignment and he comes up with the PIF concept....it was a wonderful movie but you need your tissues. I sobbed. PIF is where acts of kindness are done without expecting anything in return, just passing it on, hoping that the recipients will do the same and pay it forward, like a never ending chain of kindness I will make and send a gift for the first 3 friends who post a comment to this post, requesting to join this exchange, and promising to pay it forward to 3 other persons, etc.... I don't know what my 3 gifts will be, but I can promise I will send them within the next 365 days. What YOU have to do in return then, is "Pay It Forward" by making the same announcement and promise on YOUR blog for those who don't have a blog & wish to do this let me know & if I know you personally then I will do the same.

What a wonderful idea! I have been doing something similar, but haven't posted about it. I think it's great to go public and inspire others.
Your quilts look great, btw!
