Lindi made my day, and a scarf

Recently Lindi sent me a special gift in the mail, a strippy patchwork scarf that she had made for me in my very favourite colours! It’s about 8 inches wide and 6 feet long, and backed with snuggly flannelette. I can’t wait to wear it next winter because it will match simply everything in my wardrobeBe right back and make me feel very loved.


She also included some of my favourite chocolates (for ‘medicinal’ purposes, of course) and a little something for young Chester. How thoughtful! Lindi’s just that kind of gal.


Thank you, dear Lindi!

It wasn’t my birthday (though it is today Winking smile), and I had done nothing to deserve my presents.

It was a Pay it Forward gift, and came with certain conditions.

So here’s how Pay it Forward works……

In gratitude for Lindi’s kindness I’m passing on the goodness and offering to make 5 people a handmade gift.

I’m allowed a year in which to make these gifts.

If you’d like to be on the receiving end all you need to do is leave me a comment here on my blog letting me know.

Please include your email address if you’re a “No reply” blogger as I must have some way of getting back to you to confirm if you’re one of the lucky five. Don’t worry, your comments will go directly to my inbox and I won’t be publishing comments for this post, so your private details will remain with me.

However… you must be prepared to Pay it Forward once you receive your gift.

You should, in turn, offer (through your blog or on Facebook) to make 5 people a handmade gift over the next year. Please don’t put your hand up unless you are prepared to make the time to do this.

I am happy to post overseas too.

So, wave your hand if you’re up for it Rolling on the floor laughing

  4. Hi, Di! I hope you had a very nice birthday. Did you get 5 folks to play with you? I will if you still need someone. We just got an Act of Random Kindness to our family, so I'd love to pay it forward through my Facebook. (I'm in Colorado, USA, though)


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
