PIF in honor of Carrie's Generosity

I posted the message below on the 123stitch message board just a few minutes ago and I want to open this PIF to the readers of my blog as well:
You may remember about a week ago I posted a confession about not making sure I had enough GAST Maple Syrup in the right dyelot to finish a project ... I trusted my memory of my fiber stash [usually a safe bet - as a former art teacher, I have a good eye for and memory of color - not this time, though]. In future I shall "confirm" my memory before I pick up my needle!

Well, Carrie sent me exactly what I needed and asked for nothing in return ... and I wish to honor her gesture with a giveaway of a $10 gift certificate to 123stitch.

But this giveaway will have a bit of a TWIST ... you can't apply for yourself. If you know of another stitcher who could really use a smile this week for whatever reason, post YOUR OWN e-mail address on this thread. On Friday, June 18 [NYC area], I will use the on-line randomizer to choose one of the posters and e-mail him/her for the name and e-mail of their nominee, who will then receive a GC. Please respect the privacy of your nominee ... don't post any details of hard-luck stories on this thread ... just your own name and e-mail address.

Please respect the spirit of this giveaway and enter only if you have a nominee who could truly use a bit of a lift.
The same conditions will apply here ... just leave a comment below.

You are so kind to this, and I am sure many of us know someone that could use a pick-me-up.

I agree, your so kind to do this. There are so many I could pick. But I have one in mind that has been a great help to me in the past couple days.

What a sweet thing to do. I know of a fellow stitcher who could use a smile. Thank you :)
