Giveaway for One World One Heart

Entries for the giveaway are now closed. There were a whopping 152 entries and many many more visits – WOW! I also visited more than 100 blogs and was blown away by all the creative talent that is out there.  Thank you for participating and sharing. I enjoyed it very much. I shall draw a winner and announce it tomorrow Monday 15 February.


Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver the other gold

 I’m participating in the 2010 One World One Heart Giveaway because  I support that philosophy wholeheartedly. It’s the reason I blog –  to make friends and connect with stitchers and crafters from all over the world with whom I can share the joy of whatever it is we enjoy together. You can find out more about the One World One Heart movement on Lisa a Whimsical Bohemian’s website.

I warmly welcome all those who stop by to visit. If this is your first visit, please feel free to introduce yourself and leave a link to your blog so I can pop in and say hello.

Here’s what I have to giveaway:

Edited to add:
Readers please note that the second item in this giveaway (Little House Needleworks Moon and Stars) is a cross stitch chart only, not a stitched piece.

Drawn Thread’s Pearls and Rosebud freebie. I stitched this into a scissor fob on pink Belfast, using recommended threads. Embellished with a pink silk hanger and  pink and silver beads & charms to complete the tassel.

DT - Pearls and Rosebud scissor fob

Pearls and Rosebuds close up

Bead work and tassel

Chart – Little House Needleworks’ No. 10 –  Moon and Stars (gently used, but in as new condition)

LHN Chart No. 10 - Moon and Stars

If you’re interested, please leave a comment on this post only with your contact email. 

The Closing date for the draw is midnight GMT Sunday 14th February. I will announce the winner on Monday 15th February.

Don’t forget to pop over to the Whimsical Bohemian’s website  to get on the Magic Carpet and visit the hundreds of bloggers who are participating in this fabulous event. Last time I looked there were more than 570 680 blogs listed.

Happy Stitching 😉
