One Heart One World

The One World One Heart event is back.


Lisa Swifka is the brain behind this blog open house which has grown to 1000 participants in 4 years and this year is the fifth and final year.
So I just made it as a participant, last year I had a great time travelling the world and discovering a plethora of creative people via their blogs.
I'm a Textile Designer living in Bangalore, India. Embroidery is my passion. I embroider scarves and stoles and I'm deeply involved with design and development of textile based handicrafts in India.

As part of the One World One Heart event I'm giving away a crocheted doily and a little heart made of screwpine fibre. Both are made by groups of craftswomen who I've worked with.

If you'd like to be included in the draw for this giveaway you need to be a blogger, yes this is an event for active bloggers. Please leave a comment on this post only and I'll draw a lucky winner on 17th February. Please make sure you leave your email id so I can contact you. :) Like this maya(dot) matthew(at) gmail (dot) com so bots or trolls or whatever else don't get hold of it.
I hope you enjoy taking a look around my blog.
Thanks for visiting and to see the list of participants in this year's One World One Heart event click here. Bon Voyage!

Hi there,

I couldn't find your name on the blog, so please excuse my impersonal salutation.

It's lovely to meet you there in India. I used to have a couple of Indian pen pals, but have lost contact with them over the years.

Anyway, thanks for offering such a lovely door prize!

Greetings from Germany,
