I first saw this challenge on Facebook.It was posted by Jen Carlton-Bailly
"Pay it Forward in 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status." The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011."
What a great idea! And what a fun sewing project for my new studio space. So in betwixt organizing fabric, learning about long arm quilting, and assembling the last of the IKEA furniture, I will sew for the first 5 people who are also willing to pay it forward. Just leave a comment at the end of this post. And then.....when you least expect it, something handmade will arrive in your mailbox! But the absolute best part is that you get the opportunity to PAY IT FORWARD too!
Here are a few more pics of the sew on studio.....we are hoping to have everything done by next week.
Here's the soon to be cozy seating area. The far end of the space will be used for the long arm machine which should be delivered next week. Hmmmm, looks like some patchwork pillows are needed!
A place for coats.
And messages and notes.
And of course sewing. Lots of sewing.
The next 5 pictures belong in the believe it or not category. This is how the studio space looked the first day we saw it. Complete with portable cubicle dividers, baby blue paint, computer parts and metal shelving. Looking back now, I can't believe all the changes!
Change is good. The only thing that would make it any better....is a comment or visit from you!
