Well I was not sure what a PIF was so I took a look.
A PIF for those of you who like me were unsure of the translation is a Pay It Forward
Which means that the first 3 people who commented on Sarah's post will get a Handmade gift from her, these people must then post about the PIF & send out handmade gifts to the first 3 commenter's on there post's and so it carries on.
So having not heard or joined in on a PIF before I made a comment, (the 1st comment) and now I am passing on this PIF to the first 3 commenter's on this post.
I am quite excited as I have just recently go the sewing bug back and have ordered and shopped for some fabby new fabrics, ribbons etc. (see my Post re Liberty below)
So Please comment if you would like to join in, I'm sure it will be great fun.
Love Sophie xxxx

Lovely new books.
Is it silly to get excited about new cook books!!!
No don't be silly Sophie, new cook books means lots more cooking to do.
So I finally got Nigella's Christmas - really wanted it last Christmas but every where I went it was sold out. So this year I decided to get it early to miss the rush & disappointment.
I also got the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook which looks Divine and I just want to make all the goodies in it straight away!!
And Veg Patch which is the River Cottage Handbook 4, really great info for my Veg patch adventures.
So all in all a good selection of books, still have more on my list though "Handmade" being at the top.
So have a lovely weekend Sophie xxxx

Saturday morning and there was a thud on the door mat, and what did I find?
A lovely parcel all the way from Australia from Kate at One Flew Over.
I won her giveaway, a beautiful bundle of fabric, with truly inspiring patterns.
So today I decided was the day to get out my trusty old sewing machine, It's older than me!!
I haven't sewn for a while as I haven't felt very creative in the last 6 months. Work has been stressful and I find it difficult to be creative when I have other things on my mind.
Ohh I also sewed the ribbon that Kate had tied the fabric bundle up in around the side panel of the pin cushion.
