Pay it foreward

I've joined the Pay it Forward challenge. I think it will be fun. I love doing things for people and making gifts for my friends. The first three people to join me will receive a handmade gift from me. I have 365 days to make it and send. Hopefully it won't take me that long though. Then each of you three must also put this on your blog and get three people each to sign up. Then you make your three people a handmade gift. I think it sounds great. Hopefully three bloggers out there will want a handmade gift from me. All you have to do is put this fun challenge up on your blog and lets keep it going. I have three bloggers out there that would like a prezzie from me.............leave a comment but you had better be quick... Leanne

A bit about me

My name is Leanne and I'm mad about quilting and doing stitcheries, I am married to a wonderful and very patient man who puts up with all my fabric and crafts spread throughout the house, we have 3 boys who keep me very busy, Daniel is 12, Jacob is 9 and Nicky is 8.
I work part time as a teachers assistant and in between doing that and looking after my family, I love to quilt, right now I'm working on Leanne's house Journey of a quilter, its such a pretty quilt, I'm also doing Girls Day out as a block of the month. I have plenty of other quilts on the go but far too many to mention in my first blog.
Ok thats it for today, I'm off to see what else i can add to my blog page, I'll post some photos soon.
