One World One Heart starts today!!!

Photo



One World One Heart starts today,and I am giving 2 pieces of my work away. The canvas has been painted and stamped. I have used a piece of my snow dyed fabric on each piece, that has stitching on it, with a hand embossed metal panel in the centre. The text reads' The world is a book and those who do not travel read only the first page' by St Augustine .
This one will go to the first name drawn.








And as this one is smaller, will go to the second name drawn. The draw takes place on February 15th. Just leave a comment on my blog to enter the draw. If you click on the OWOH badge, you will find all the other bloggers who are taking part in this event. (Click on the image to get a closer look at my work)




I saved some of the Anzac biscuit mixture I had made for school as it is Australia Day tomorrow, and cooked some for the family tonight. They are disappearing very quickly.





They are very easy to make, here is the recipe I use:-
1 cup plain flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup oats and desiccated coconut
125g marg
1/4 cup syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tab boiling water.
Into a large bowl mix flour,sugar, oats and coconut.
Heat marg and syrup in a bowl in microwave until melted.
Dissolve bicarb in boiling water and pour into syrup mixture.
Make a well in the centre of dry ingredients and pour in the liquid and mix well.
Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
Roll a tablespoon of mixture into balls and place on baking sheet, flattening slightly. Allow room for spreading.
Bake in oven 180c, 350f or gas no 4 for 20 mins.
Place on cooling tray when cooked. Enjoy!!!

...and what is Anzac? Looks like cookies to me. I read the recipe and may just need to try making these. I'll bookmark your site and let you know how they/it turns out! Don't you just love stumbling upon all the randomness out in the blogging universe? I do. (Biscuits=cookies, right?) An artist and a gourmand, wowzers. I hope you're having fun out in blog-ville with the rest of us. Tina

Wow, these snow dyed canvases are beautiful. I have seen tutorials for snow dyed fabric, but haven't tried it yet. I don't think I have the right kind of dye. However, you certainly got some lovely results with yours.

Thank you so much for your kind remarks on my blog, too.

Hello from southern California, one world, one heart.

I just read a post on snow dyed fabric. This is difficult to do in my desert climate, but I do make use of the sun and the compost pile for dyeing.
