Pay it Forward 2011

You may remember that last year I busily sent off 5 little packages for pay it forward 2011. Well my own pay it forward gift has finally arrived from Felicity in Australia- and it was worth the wait!

A gorgeous little notebook just for me. Although I LOVE notebooks like this, I am one of those terrible people who is scared to write in them and spoil them. 

This notebook deserves to be used though so I am going to use it as a grateful diary, writing down three things that I am grateful for each day.
Accompanying the notebook was this little bowl of goodies.
Inside I found beautifully decorated discs. On one side was my name.
On the other side was noughts and crosses 
or hugs and kisses-
however you choose to interpret them.
I loved the idea of noughts and crosses and immediately thought of a scrap of fabric that I have which coordinated beautifully with the discs.

I improvised myself a little quilted noughts and crosses board.
The edges are a bit rough and ready, but it will serve its purpose perfectly.
 Thank you so much Felicity for a kind and thoughtful gift.
Now... Anybody want a game?
