Last year I was a recipient in Nessa's Craft it Forward and I received a lovely hand made gift from her last May. In turn I was to send a hand made item to the first three qualifying bloggers who responded to my promotion. Once they received their gifts they then agreed to host their own Craft-It-Forward on their blogs, and to send out a hand made gift to three different people within 12 months of receiving their item/s.
I only had two bloggers who qualified - Anne Boundy and Filomena Parbery. I had until May this year to complete my gifts and I just slid over the finish line as May turned into June.
As Anne lives not too far away we caught up for lunch in the nearby town of Kyneton and I delivered her gift in person. Filomena lives interstate so I posted hers up to her.
I knew that both ladies love Lori Holt fabrics & designs, and that Filomena also loves Bonnie & Camille fabrics. My sleuthing discovered that both have a fondness for aqua and red. I wanted to make a gift that was practical so I decided to make the "Stitchy Kit" pattern by Bee In My Bonnet Designs - Lori Holt.
