Pay It Forward

A couple of years ago I responded to this offer and this week I received these lovely gifts from Caireen:
A Clutterbucket, which is a great idea for keeping current projects in. I filled it with my knitting immediately. A long time ago I bought some plain, faded green material to make 'project bags' for my many unfinished knitting and sewing projects, the idea being to line them all up, with a photocopy of the project on the front, so I could easily pick up the project at any time and continue. Anyway, I think clutterbuckets are a better idea as they are reversible, compact, and easy to see what's inside already. And they sit perfectly on the shelf.
My current knitting project modelling the bucket :)
Caireen also sent me these gift tags, which she's recycled from magazines by sticking cut out pictures onto card. I love anything stationery so these appealed to my messing-around-and-making-things streak.
It was SO lovely to get something fun and exciting in the post, and in the spirit of the original entry, I am now offering a 'Pay It Forward' myself.
So, the first three people to leave a comment on this post will receive a home-made gift from me within the year. I have a few ideas of what to make and pass on.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Love the idea of the clutterbucket could do with a few of those myself looked lovely with your knitting in! Mo xx

What a fabulous idea! Homemade pieces are always extra lovely I find. And your knitting does look great in that clutterbucket (I'm always trying to keep my cluttering under control - don't always manage - hum). I love the colours you chose for your knitting - can't wait to see the finished product! ;-) xx Sas
