ISHW post and A Pay It Forward

Good morning to my Followers and welcome to my new Followers.
I was at a stitching retreat last week-end which was also the ISHW week-end, I did some stitching had loads of fun and ate way to much, the Cindy is our moderator for this event which happens twice a year once in the fall and again in the late winter, arrival is on Friday about 14:00 leaving on Sunday at 14:00.
The stitching is abundant, there are some things that are amazing, I love seeing what everyone is working on. Some bring large projects and some like me bring smaller projects I like to have my floor frame for the latger pieces so leave it at home.
This is what I worked on, this is also one of my UP For A Challenge 15.

This is Country Cottage Needleworks Dream Big, I love this pattern, however I did use my own thread choice, I wanted the bunny and words to pop out a little more and not be so light lighting,
do you like the change?

Next I have to tell you about the Pay It Forward from Robin over at Crafting With The Stitch Witch, wow this lady is amazing, I won this fabulous box of goodies, picked out a few patterns and a lovely 31 notebook woth pad and pencil I am so thankful to Robin, many thank-yous Robin.

So the three pictures above are the items I am paying forward.
I did pick a few things from this faboulous Lady"s generous Pay It Forward.

I've just found your lovely blog! You sure have stitched so many beautiful things!! (and I love your sweet kitty in your headline photo!)
I'd love to enter your Pay it Forward!!! I always love new stash and I certainly do have some things to contribute--great things, but I know I'll never get around to stitching them!! I'd love for someone else to enjoy them!
Thank you so much!
