I have decided to participate in this years One World One Heart event run by Lisa Swifka .
This is the fith year (and final one) that Lisa has run this event and I have at last made the effort to join in.
The reason that Lisa started this event 5 years ago was to connect bloggers with each other.
Each of the bloggers participating in the event are offering a "door prize" as a giveaway.
So to the people who don't know me let me introduce myself----------
My name is Doreen and I am a dabbler in many things.
I started my Journey as a dressmaker many moons ago and in my fifties I rediscovered hand embroidery.
Next it was Machine embroidery-then felting -then card making and then mixed media work.
Gradually I am doing the circle again and I am back doing hand embroidery but this time in a more creative way.
I love what I do and I love having the freedom to change my mind and try something new without feeling guilty about not finishing the last project that I was working on.
The idea of OWOH is for people to meet each other and maybe become great friends into the bargain.
The event is open to all bloggers worldwide and all you have to do is leave a comment here on my blog to be in the draw and I must be able to contact you if you win.
If you would like to see the list of the other participating bloggers click here and then you can leave a message on their blogs as well.
Now about my door prize---
It is a small quiltie which measures 6 and 1/2 inches square and is made of embroidered silk chiffon with cotton laces attached.
It has a small photo of a little girl printed on fabric and embellished with silk ribbon embroidery,buttons and flower motifs.
The blanket stitched border finishes it off.
