One World One Heart

Just an update to this post. Because I have had such an overwhelming response I will be giving away not one, but three hearts. Your choice of white with red stitching or red with white stitching. I am truly amazed and delighted to meet so many new friends and explore such great blogs!


I am excited to be participating in One World One Heart, an event for bloggers to meet and mingle. If you are new to my blog, welcome! If you have been here before, welcome back! If you would like to join in the event just click on the button on my side bar or here to find out more.

I am someone who has always asked the question "What do I want to be when I grow up?" Well, I'm in my fifties now and I think I probably need to quit trying to figure that one out and just "be." So, here is what I know about myself, so far. I am a textile artist and I like to use traditional techniques in unusual ways. I tend to make three dimensional fabric pieces and then embroider on them. Sometimes they are quite traditional looking and sometimes they are unusual. I think this is all part of my 'what do I want to be' thing. I want to do and try it all!



Besides textiles, my other passions are cooking and gardening. I like to experiment and try new recipes especially if it includes ingredients out of my garden. Herbs and I seem to have an especially good relationship but I still need to work some things out with peas and spinach.

I live in the upper Midwest of the United States. I grew up here but until recently, I lived in Virginia. As I watch the snow pile up and the temperature drop I long for the milder winters but I really love being in a place where I feel such a connection and being closer to family.




I left one of the best parts of One World One Heart for last, the door prize. In honor of February I will be giving away one of my felt embroidered hearts. Just leave a comment on this post and a way for me to get in touch with you. The drawing will take place on February 17th. Good to meet you!
