Well, I have decided at the last minute to participate in "One World One Heart", which is the brain child of Lisa Swifka at The Whimiscal Bohemian. It is a wonderful way to reach out to bloggers internationally.
First, I want to thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Julie, but I am also known affectionately in the crazy quilt community as Jules. I live on the Texas Gulf Coast with my DH and beloved animals. My interests are a bit eclectic - I am a "crazy" quilter, but I also love to dabble in mixed media and digital art. I am a Christian and feel that the talents we have are special gifts given to us by God and they are meant to be shared. So, I especially enjoy being involved in charitable projects and projects that will bring encouragement to others. I am also a staff writer for CQMagOnline.com, a free quaterly online publication for crazy quilters.
I have three items for the OWOH give-away. The first is a wool strawberry needle case kit. The finished needlecase is approximately 5-6" long Picture, wool and instructions are all included to make this delightful and quite useful needlecase.
My third item is a project box. Something like this is nice to carry a small project or a piece of a project along with you when you are out and about; doctor's office waiting, etc. This is a vintage cigar box onto which I have put a quilted collage of items including fabric, lace, buttons, jewelry findings, and a picture of a lady doing hand sewing on the top. The inside of the box is lined with wool which is convenient when working with beads. The text on the box reads: "happiness is fingers at play..." to which I fully subscribe. There are also three vintage typewriter keys which spell the word JOY. Just for a little extra fun, I have filled the box with a few bits and pieces of lace, trim, silk ribbon, a bag of buttons, etc. A little something to get a new project started.
Now - how do you enter? Just leave a comment on this post, being sure to note how you can be contacted.
The drawings will be held on February 17th. and I will notify the two winners by email and also post your names on my blog. Then the items will be mailed to you.
I plan to visit all those who leave a comment so that I can enjoy your blogs as well and I know I will be blessed by doing so. I hope that in some way you receive a blessing from your visit here.
Best of luck and enjoy your OWOH travels...
