*************************************************************************

This will be where I post for the next week or so.[I think!] I will add to the bottom of this post, so that more can comment here to be in the drawing...



**********************************************************************
Lila's Birthday Giveaway.....


On October 15th, I will have a birthday! To celebrate, I will give away a framed original watercolor, "Autumn Song". This painting has a fall theme featuring mums, pears, and a nightingale. I will post more about it soon! If you leave a comment anytime in October, through my birthday, you will be entered in the drawing!
[added later] The painting is 16 X 20 in the frame. Yes, I am the artist. It is signed, though you can't see that here!!

Saturday October 4th...



I have decided to sew for my granddughter. There are so many cute things to make and since I have a machine and a serger, I really MUST do this. [Besides I enjoy it!]



The first is a cotton flowered jumper with orange-red contrast bands.








Next will be a "swing" jacket from pink and brown houndstooth corduroy. It will have large brown buttons.




Off to the cutting table now!...

October 7th....the jacket is finished! (see photo) Off to post office and on it's way to Lilia!

Your watercolor is very sweet. I just love the translucency of watercolor work. My grandfather did some very beautiful work in watercolors also.

Julie said...

Lila,

Please don't include me in the draw, as I already have the joy of having one of your original watercolors (Bittersweet and Chinese Lanterns in Blue and White Vase - so lovely - I'm looking at it right now!)Let someone else enjoy your beautiful paintings.

What a wonderful thing for you to do, to give something away for YOUR birthday!!

Hey Birthday Girl, this is one way to get me to leave a comment. Who in the world wouldn't want a LILA ORIGINAL? But I won't fret if I don't get it.
