Pay It Forward, Part 2
A year ago, this Pay It Forward challenge was making the rounds in the blogosphere. I decided to participate and received a response. I had 365 days to make a gift and as usual, I left things close to the deadline.
But, I can now reveal that the recipient of my gift is Judy Merrill-Smith of Cheery Tomato Productions. For Judy, I made a doll named "Gwendoline." I noticed that Judy has had a few posts on her blog relating to world peace, so I thought it would be appropriate for Gwendoline to wear a peace symbol. The batik fabric puts me in mind of the tie dye fabrics that were popular in the 60s, along with the peace symbol.
The maker of my Pay It Forward gift was Maggie Robinson of Magpies Collectables. Maggie and I are both Dempseys (her maiden and my married name). Above is the beautiful brooch that Maggie made for me, highly detailed with beads, textures and shades of purple.
