Something that makes me smile

I thought this post shouldn't go by without a book photo. This is a tiny concertina I call Mardi Gras,  a very simple exercise in sewing pages into concertina folds. Quite cute, totally useless but pretty in a rather tizzy way.  Every time I come across it on my shelves I can't help smiling at the silliness of it, and we all know that smiling is a Good Thing.
 
The response to my One World One Heart giveaway has been overwhelming to say the least. There just aren't hours enough in a day to respond to everyone (at this time over 480 comments) but I will try to visit everyone over the next few weeks, or maybe months. I will certainly be visiting my followers to say hello.

Drop in on Monday 15 Feb at 6:00 p.m Sydney time when I announce the winner.

  5. A lovely little book Carol. It is fun to make something a little whimsical just for the fun of it. Cheers.

  6. Thanks everyone.

    Judy, I think 6 pm Sydney is 2 am Atlanta/New York. We are 16 hours ahead of you. We are 19 hours ahead of LA - I think our daylight saving time is calculated into this.
