Pay it Forward Give-Away - Sea Shells for Crazy Quilters

A couple of weeks ago, I was the recipient of a Pay it Forward from Shawkl. She sent me these beautiful hand made earrings.  Thanks Karen.     I've been a loyal follower of Karen since she started her 12 dozen stitches project last year.  I has ever so excited to get new ideas for stitching on my Crazy Quilted Christmas socks.  

So, my job is to Pay it forward to 5 bloggers.   Because I've been following Shawkl for her great stitching inspiration, I have decided to give away 5 sets of hand picked sea shells that have a mother nature hole in them.    These will be of particular interest to stitchers and crazy quilters who like to incorporate beads, charms, buttons, and other items in their crazy quilting.  




Here you can see how I incorporated a small shell into Baby Aurora's Crazy Quilted Sock.  In a few weeks, I'm going to show a few more projects where I incorporate shells in my stitching.






So if you are a blogger, and you would like to participate in the Pay-it-forward give-away, have a look at the rules here....  If you are still game, please leave me a comment.  

Here's a picture of what you'll get for your CQ stash if you are one of the first 5 commenters.   

Be sure you leave your email address so I can contact you for your mailing address.  I will mail on Tuesday.

I would love to participate but I am already taking part in two Pay It Forwards. That's a great idea for using shells and beads and I look forward to you showing more ideas.

I would love to participate in this Pay It Forward. I've never participated in a blog give/swap before, and I'd love to now.

Gail, I have the perfect destination for you. Go the UK and go to the city of York. It is an amazing city without all the chaos of London.
And...it has the UK national Quilting museum.
Really, York is amazing. It is in the centre of the northern part of England, one hour by train to the coast.
Also close by car to an area known as the Lake District.
Make your reservation, you won't regret it.
(Did I mention that I used to live there!!)
