One World One Heart 2011

Friday, February 11, 2011

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, 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 second item to be given away is a vintage baby-shoe pincushion which I recently made. You can see the tutorial in the current issue of CQMagOnline.  This is a baby shoe that has been painted, distressed, and decorated with lace, silk roses, buttons, and music fabric.  The pincushion itself is filled with emery shavings to help keep needles sharp and protected.

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...

Oooh, three great prizes, you are very generous. Each one appeals to a different side of me, the crafter in me would love the box full of supplies, the vintage lover in me would love the baby shoe pin cushion, and the strawberry kit is something I would love to try as well. Fingers crossed. Liz (831)

Hi, Julie, from your latest "follower!" I just adore your blog, and I would LOVE to win one of your gorgeous and wonderful giveaways! You're going to make some people very, very happy! I'm pulling for me. ;-) I can't wait to come back and explore more of your blog. I adore quilts and collect antique and vintage quilts...even have one my great grandmother did around the turn of the century. We have a lot of them on the walls at our circa 1869 house. You should drop by my blog for a visit if you have a little time!

Anyway, thanks so much for the chance to win such wonderful giveaways! I'm looking forward to coming back and reading more of your musings!

All good wishes,
