OWOH - Gifts of Kindness

The One World One Heart
must surely be
Huge Thanks go to Lisa Swifka for all the hard work she has put into this wonderful
 event over the past 5 years.
Lisa - thank you so much for bringing together so many like-minded artful souls
and for giving us the opportunity to share so much creativity and joy
along the whole journey
and for all the wonderful friendships that have been made.

I personally feel truely grateful for the whole experience
and for the most wonderful gifts I have received.
Among these include :
Viola from

Her beautiful gift was wrapped in this large oval shaped dyed doily
and inside I found these:
How gorgeous is Viola's work!
A handmade fabric collage, tags and some beautiful lace.
Thank you so very much Viola - I will love and treasure these
and feel especially honoured to have recieved these.

And speaking of all things lacey came my second prize from
A very beautiful white vintage laced cushion and oh just look at the beautiful image in the centre!
Not to mention the french influenced tag!
It is sitting perfectly happy on top of one of my vintage laced quilts.
And thought it looked quite at home on my bed! - What do you think?

Thank you sweet woman Liz for your gorgeous work
in putting this together!

Next from one truely special woman from
is Abigail with her truely special gift
of this painting called
"Little Bird"
bearing this message:
"Still voice within - Lead me and guide me."

Abigail is a rare and heartfelt artist and a true inspiration to any artist who is on the
path of soul searching!
Abigail I am in debt to you always.  I will love and treasure this piece and always be
reminded of the connection to you when I look at it.

From Palma Rea in Italy
came these beautiful draw prizes of
this delicate heart on a chain
plus a collaged card and some extra threads - just what we fibre artists need to create with!
Thanks heaps Palma - you are one incredible artist whose work is just so colourful
and vibrant!

And finally, as if all this wasn't enough, arrived in the mail was this:
from Diane at
Diane's mixed media art is very inventive.
This is an image which has been edited using Photoshop
and transferred onto canvas.
What a clever woman she is - a wonderful mixed media artist.
Thank you for your kindness Dian.

Well, all in all, I think I have received more than my fair share of such wonderful art coming
from, as far and wide as,
Germany, England, the United States and Italy

Thank you all so very much for making this OWOH event
so memorable!
