Welcome to my stop on the One World One Heart 2010 blog event!
Roll up your magic carpet and have a cup of chai.
I would love to thank Lisa for hosting OWOH for a fourth year. I first hopped on board last year and I had a wonderful time visiting ALL 911 participating blogs.
For those who would like more info, you can find out more about OWOH and its simple goal of global fun and friendship on Lisa's blog, A Whimsical Bohemian
Each blog on the magic carpet route will be hosting a giveaway for some kind of treasure, but you do NOT need to be a participating blogger to enter.
I will be giving away this hand embroidered & embellished original art piece.
The Key to the Future (lies in the past) is a piece I embroidered last autumn. She was the second piece of embroidery I had ever done.
Sadly, she hid in a drawer filled with other stitched pieces, vintage fabrics, and assorted treasures until now.
OWOH seemed like the perfect occasion to bring this wistful sepia-tone maiden out of her confines. The piece is finished with antique Venice lace (scored at a local church basement sale!), vintage doily lace and buttons, aged key, hand-rouched fabrics, and a sweet felted heart. Finished piece measures approx 8x10 inches (20 x 25cm) excluding hanging loops (for dowel or even a cool stick!) and heart. I do hope you like her. She was a joy to stitch up, and I will miss seeing her in my treasure drawer.
My giveaway will begin today, and close February 15th at 12:01am, with the winner(s) names announced later that same day. Giveaway open to everyone worldwide
All you need to do is leave a comment on THIS post. I would love to know where you are visiting from. Please do not forget to leave some kind of contact info in case you are the winner (email, twitter or craftster name will be great, or just let me know that your contact info is on your blog if you are using Blogger).

Hugs and love to all of my lovely guests on this wonderful magic carpet ride!
Now enjoy your journey along this route of fantastic blogs.
