Birthday Giveaway and Sketchbook project pages

It is my Birthday on the 4th of October and as I have missed my blog anniversaries etc I thought I would do a giveaway. So any one who comments between now and the 4th of October will go in the draw. It is also on my other blog here.
I may divide this up if I get a few people commenting. It has mostly textile stuff but a gelatin print as well.
I have had a worrying time about what to put in my book for the Sketchbook project as the paper is not terribly good so I have been sticking stuff in. drawing around them. sticking pages together. My theme was 'If you lived here'.
I just hope it is acceptable, it does look rather as if almost anything goes.
Warmer and the sun is out, I must go and pull some weeds before they grow 'as high as an elephants eye'!
Here is Issa's Haiku for today
One man and one fly
buzzing together
in one big bare
sunny room...

Hi Penny,

please count me in for your giveaway! Happy Birthday for the 4th just incase I forget.

I'm having the same problem with my sketch book! My theme is below the surdace. The paper is fristrating isn't it? I'm persisting with water colour washes but very light ones and then using a warm iron to flatten the paper - seems to be working so far!

The giveaway sounds like fun-- great gift for the winner. I am glad that your chickens enlarged so I could get a gander at the delightful old ladies. Their combs flopping around seem such expressive body language.

Hello and a happy birthday for next week. The weather here in Geelong is still cool and the bikes are starting off today but so far there were no traffic hitches early morning.
