Happy Easter & PIF

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

I was lucky enough to hop on to a PIF on Stina's blog I think I am very lucky as she does some fantastic work.

No crafty photos to share but over the last few week as I drive to work this is what has been happening.

The fig trees on the side of the road are dropping their fruit and these little ducks are more concerned about their tummies than their lives. Thankfully cars slow down for them and I have only seen one casualty. I doesn't worry them to slowly waddle across the road in front of the cars.

They even like to play golf.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Easter.

Hope those ducks keep safe. I try to PIF with blog friends who send me things. One kind friend gave me a magazine, & I was thrilled to be able to give another person a knitting pattern. It is a great idea.
