OWOH 2011

I picked a random number and got 63, and  counted and counted and got different answers every time, and counted and counted, until I realized that that's random too :-D

The winner is Kelli from Book of Kells

Welcome to my blog for 5th and last OWOH - One World, One Heart happening, where bloggers come together :-)

I was a bit worried that I wouldn't make it, because I posted last year's OWOH wins to the receivers only yesterday... No, don't worry, it won't take as long this year.:-D I made a promise that I would have the gift ready and also an envelope to post it in, before I gave myself a permission to participate. ;-)

I have not been well lately, so this blog hasn't been updated properly, but I do post every now and then, and every now and then I post more than other times. See this blog as a craft ezine, with links and ideas for different fiber crafts, from paper to wool.

I'm 42 in 2 months, married, childless but not petless. We have a dog (so if you don't want dog hair, don't participate in this drawing.)
I have been pottering with arts and crafts for as long as I remember. I do things with fiber; crochet, knit, sew, embroider, knot... I know how to weave, make lace and felt, and I can quickly learn any technique I don't already know :-D There aren't many of those...
The hardest thing to learn was spinning. I just couldn't get my head around how to fasten the fibers to the spindle :-D

So, my gift to you is this crocheted bag. It's small, the size of a pocket, about the size of a spread hand. 15 cm (6 inches) square, perhaps. The photo is rather good, I think it shows the color well. There is no zipper or button, nor a lining, but should be big enough to carry a wallet and keys or so.
I made it a couple of years ago, because I think it's cute, but haven't used it once. I hope you find a way to use it :-)

Now, how to get a chance to win this?
a) you have to have an active blog
b) you can live anywhere in the world
c) leave a comment

I will pick a random number from hat the 17th of February - that's a week from now - and inform in this blog who is the winner, and I will also contact the winner in mail if I can. Otherwise I will ask the winner to contact me with her/his address information, so that I can post this bag to you. So be prepared to visit this blog again 18th of February, so that you won't miss your prize.
