Seahorse and seaweed swan added to Lynne's Moly for our exchange. I have added some bits here and there, but this is the biggest addition. I can mail it tomorrow or keep going. :)

I kept going adding a lighthouse on Look Out Rock. Look out for that giant Bug overhead!

This dog is prepared for the rain, even if it rains cats and dogs. :) Now going into the mail.

The postal strike looks like a definite thing from next thursday, but no news how long or what form it will take......grrrrr

The next installment in round 3. The blue thread bits on the right are covering some drawing edits that I didn't like (shhhhhh). I'm mad at myself because I got rid of the end of a can of spray mount and now I want it instead of glue. Tomorrow I will get some and then be ready to send off my book. A bit more work tonight, including a sign in at the end of the book. :)

First additions to my book for Round #3. A Solar Eclipse. The moon is black watercolor, then a translucent layer of silver ink, and pale blue threadwork glued on top. You can see the ring of glue around the edge because I was too impatient to take a picture, but it should dry clear.

Does it feel like we are getting close to the end....I think two more exchanges, what do you think? I can see that it will be hard to call a halt, personally I can always add more, but there has to be an will we know?

Bunnies, Moths and Mermaids

And here are my additions for your book. Luna moth, happy bunnies and a mermaid making friends with a horse of another color.

sleeping dragon, trees and moon

here are my additions.....I will pop them in the post tomorrow, not to pressure you, but I guess its best for your book to be on its way to you rather than sitting here, then at least you can work in it when you are ready.
I hope you like my additions, the black circle near the owl is silver foil but it doesn't show up very well on the scan....

A few details

It's getting harder to post all the little additions each time, so here are a few of them. I've sprinkled them throughout the book, large and small.

The white square here is actually a hole cut in the paper. The blue is pasted in with a little bunny stamp on top. I think I'm ready to mail tomorrow. May add one or two other bits, but I'm good to go.

I have a few more bits to add to my book, but this is what I have done so I working too fast for you? I don't want to put pressure on you.
Is it better that I wait for a couple of weeks before I post it on, or are you happy that I send it back to you whenever I finish my additions and that you work at the pace that is most comfortable for you?

Additions to Lynne's Book - part 1

Hi Lynne -

Here's the first set of additions to your book. I'll be doing more this evening, but wanted to send an update. I tried to add details to one of your yellow birds, hated it, so added the black crow on top. :) Also, I received my book back from you today, but I'm not opening the envelope until yours is back on its way to you.

work so far

I have had a day to myself as soon as I got your book I started working on it.... I would like to do a few more touches to the stag but if you would like me to stop now, do say......

Sunday, August 23, 2009


I'll be sending this along in the mail on Tuesday. Added the barn owl tonight and am pretty happy with it.

My start

Here's my beginning. I want to add a few more spots in the book before I send it off to you, but thought I'd post the start. I'm not sure what my theme is, if there is one. It might be magic or witches or something like that. I'm leaving plenty of room for your work and so we can go back and forth a couple times before we are really done. :)

my book so far

Jenn is this what you imagined? I can stop now or continue through the whole book.....I am leaving gaps and scattering images around. This is only half the book done.........shall I leave you the other half to give me something to work against? I sort of see this as a complete intergration of our work, not getting too precious about our books, as long as we are respectful of each other it should be great fun

Official Start

First round - animals. To be mailed on or around September 7th.

Let the games begin!

Hi Jen, after reading your book review on the moly exchange site, I went to have a look....what an inspiring book... the sarajevo Haggadah images are gorgeous....inspiring :-)
I also found this, a more contemporary one  using much food for thought. I really fancy trying some papercuts in our books....
