OWOH 2011 - Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of OWOH 2011 (#381). Rest your wings, sit a spell and chat.
First things first .... Thanks to Lisa at for being the heart behind this event. This is the fifth and final event and I for one appreciate all her hard work bringing her vision to reality.
If you are new to my blog it's all about hand stitching. I love to cross-stitch, embroider and hand quilt. I'm learning to design my own patterns and will often take an existing one and add my own twist to it (just for fun). For those of you who visited my blogs last year during OWOH2010 ....... welcome back.
My "growing up" part of the world is a long ways away from this hilly, scenic, region of middle Tennessee. I was born and raised in Scotland and winged my way to the USA, with a few suitcases in tow, in 1987. The hubster, kidlets and I have lived in Ohio, Michigan and now Tennessee. All great states with unique charms of their own.
Before you take flight again I have a door prize but it's not being revealed all at once. It's all ready for the winner but let's have some fun with it. I'll change out the photo every so often and reveal a new item each time.

1. 5" mini cushion. (I found the freebie pattern at in the biscornu section, page 2)
2.  4" 'Birds in Tree' door hanger. (I found the freebie pattern at
3. Bits & Pieces By Joan - a vest pattern, with wooden star buttons included, entitled "I Love Snowmen"
4. It's going to remain a mystery ... all I'm saying is .... it's in keeping with the theme ;)
5. Depending upon how many people leave comments I might do two packages.

(You do not want to know what early hour of the morning it is here BUT all of a sudden I was woken out of a deep sleep by excited twittering from my birdie transportation. Well now what do we have here I am excited ........ enough visitors for the second package....... woohoo !!!)

Package #2 (reveal photo #2)
1. a 51/2" mini cushion/pincushion made from one of my "orphan" blocks.
2. Beginners quilt pattern - couch throw size
3. 41/2" "Birds in Tree" ornament. (I found the freebie pattern at
4. It's going to remain a mystery .... all I'm saying is ....... it's in keeping with the theme ;)
5. What's that you say birdie ...... mmmmm I'll have to think on that idea.

Just remember to leave a comment with a way to contact you. If you are set to no-reply (with no contact info) you will NOT be entered into the drawing. OWOH finishes on 17th Feb. and my winners will be announced on February 18th.
So thank you for taking some time to visit BUT it's time I sent you on your way. Fly carefully and I hope you enjoy your trip round the world.
(My birdie transportation this year is somewhat elderly. We will show up but it might take a while since we plan on taking many opportunities to rest up, refresh ourselves, and be impressed by all the art work out there. OWOH hugs to all of you.)

Up-date Thursday 17th - It's now the last day of this fabulous event. Thanks to everyone that has visited. You can continue to leave comments till 2.00 p.m. this afternoon. I'll then do some drawings, contact the winners and post the results TOMORROW. My daughter is participating in a school event this evening and we need to do some prep time beforehand.)

    I used to do quite a bit of cross-stitching and embroidery before I had my children, but then put it away because they kept wanting to come close to see what I was doing and it made me too nervous with that needle flying around. eek! But all my supplies are waiting for me in a special drawer, and I think maybe I should give it a try again soon? *Ü*

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  158. Oh, Carol, I am so glad I found your blog! I am a fellow Middle Tennesseean, transplanted here from Eastern Kentucky (not quite so far away as Scotland, however). How long have you lived in Tennessee? Your work is just beautiful. I have recently began doing a little crochet and sewing, although every other woman in my family does breathtaking work at quilting, embroidery, and other fabulous things that I am yet to master. I'm anxious to take a few classes and am learning quickly. My husband and I own a historic home, and it is filled with his grandmother's beautiful needlework, as well as his mother's, my great-aunt's, and great grandmother's work. Love it, love it. I am a hoarder of antique and vintage quilts. I just can't seem to get enough of them...such works of art.
    Anyway, it's so nice to meet you through OWOH. I would LOVE to win one of your giveaways! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed! Thank you so much for the chance to win. Hope you'll stop by my blog and visit me, as well.

    All good wishes,
