Ooh! That looks like an interesting book!
I hope you attract lots of new readers to your blog!


The Lace Makers of Glenmara
by Heather Barbieri

I am giving away this
paper back novel
(non smoking household)

for the One World One Heart event.

Please leave a comment on THIS post
(with your e-mail address)
and your name will be included in the

Winner will be contacted (via e-mail) on
February 17th. If I don't hear back
in 72 hours, I will select another name.

Over the next few days,
our Event Creator and Host,

Lisa Swifka

She will update the list frequently.

or click on link in sidebar

Per Our Hostess:
"The FIFTH and final One World One Heart
will begin on SUNDAY NIGHT January 30TH
and run until February 17, 2011
(when winners are posted / announced).

One World One Heart is a
worldwide event for bloggers only.

It gives all those who blog a chance to meet
and mingle and form connections with those
they may not have otherwise met from all over the world.

In the past 4 years this event has grown
to over 1,000 participants
with lasting friendships
(and even one love connection)
formed along the way.

Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house
allowing you to travel
without ever leaving your home........
going from blog to blog
(in various countries)
seeing the wonder each one has created
and meeting all the fabulous people
behind those blogs.

As a bonus each blogger participant
will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....
just for dropping by,
saying hello and seeing their world.

It's really that easy."


I blog as "lelia"
and enjoy tatting, reading,
punch needle, locker hooking,
needlework, and other creative
arts using textiles.

Am inspired by visiting galleries,
exhibits, art museums.

My favourite thing to do is visit
local county fairs & the state fair!

Looking forward to your
comments + links to your blogs!

Always, Lelia
