Anna's moleskin is nearly done and I'm sorry that I'm behind with the swap! Work has swamped me and I've not had a huge amount of time to post or talk of updates. I'll have some pictures for you tomorrow, after the camera has charged! Then the moley will be flying off across the ocean for the next stage of it's journey.
I received Gemma's book first but because of the mail strike and the weather and who know what else, it came very late. Then a few days later I received Dolors book. I started working on Gem's then would work on Dolors and finally I finished them at the same time. My apologise to you Anna for sending them in at the same time.
Here is a sample of Gemma's
I have enclosed a dried rose petal in the back for each of you so you can have a little bit of my garden.
Dolor's book arrived last week I guess but because I was away I have just opened my mail today. What a treat to have these special surprises just show up so unexpected and amaze me when I open them. I first turned each page one by one and then spread the whole book out.
These are Kim's wonderful paintings in Dolor's book. They, of course, look so much better in real life but you can see how beautiful they are. I just want to get my chair out of the back of my car and go and sit on this beach and paint. When I grow up and can travel where ever I want I am going to come and visit all of you and every one of these places.
Kim, you really have a wonderful mind and talent to create these exceptional images.
