Pay It Forward to Blogland - 2011

I've recently seen a lovely idea in blogland - "Pay It Forward".  After reading about the idea in Michelle's blog, I scooted over to French Laundry, where talented Judy is also participating.  It's a great way to reach out to old and new blog friends and share the limitless creativity out there. 
Here is how it works:

The first 5 people who comment on this blog post will receive a handmade gift from me, Susan of 'Evelyn and Rose'.
In return, you must first leave a blog post explaining 'Pay It Forward 2011'.   Then ... send a handmade gift to your first 5 visitors who leave a comment.
Take your time...you don't need to send them all out today or tomorrow. 
Gifts from the heart are worth the wait!  (I agree with Michelle's sentiments!).

"It's not the size of the gift that matters, but the spirit of paying it forward." 

I'm so excited, as this will be my first opportunity to send a gift your way.  I hope you enjoy 'paying it forward', too!
UPDATE: I've amended this post to share a photo of some recent items I've made for my French Farmhouse kitchen updates.  This way you can have an idea of a possible gift, since I'm still a bit new to blogland.
Ticking striped kitchen towel with ruffle (just like PB's), seat cover with monogram (maybe I'll do a personalized kitchen towel?), or burlap runner with ruffles:

Hi Susan,

OK, this is a "non-comment". I just need you to send me your mailing address so I can send you your pretty. Thanks so much for paying it forward!

Hugs,
Judy
