Hmmmm,,,,,

I'm sorry, but I still don't understand what is happening with these books. I started with this group over  two years ago - - my expectation was of spontaneous reactions with the books flying around quickly from one person to the next -- maybe, doing two rounds of the group in the space of two years.  I was looking forward to the element of surprise in opening a book not knowing what would be in it, with this blog simply being here to track the books progress. Ah well, . . .

Anyway, I'd just like to see the end result some day..... all the books seem to be blocked in one place according to the spreadsheet. Can anybody sort this out?

Hey Rowland, I only have emma's book which I've told her that it's with me. I will finish it soon.

About the process and the journey of the books, I'm sure it's the same like other moleskin projects elsewhere: it's a labour of love and patience, and also trust...which extends over a few years. I guess life just gets in the way sometimes. I can understand your frustration but I'm sure everyone is looking after your book well. When you get your book back I hope all the beautiful work that everyone has put in will make up for it.

I think positive spirits is the way to go on this blog or email. But thanks for the reminder:) Keep drawing guys! All the books look amazing! Thank you!

I currently have no book in hand, and the last book I sent off to o_O was Helena's book.

Rowland, I sort of went through the blog to see where your book might be, and this entry here: http://moleskinex3.blogspot.tw/2012/06/rowland-gets-dragon.html seems to be the most recent entry about your book.

I have added Jan Allsopp on facebook (though she's not on it very often) I could ask her if your book is with her.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for checking, niji -- that was june last year! - it appears that all the books are now with Emma according to the spreadsheet - is that correct? what name is Little Mo on the spreadsheet? (You see how confused I am. . . . )

I have 2 books with me, including the one that 二月niji sent to me last month. I usually send them along to Australia for Helena ( aka Little Mo) but if they're getting stuck there, maybe we should change the order?

Let me know.

OK, I have been kind of busy, but I can say, I have no idea where the spreadsheet is anymore, and I have no books. Last I did was send them to Jan, who has recently moved, so maybe she is preoccupied as well.
If you want your book back, just ask Jan to send it to you. I am sure she will oblige. I know Helena has my book, and wanted more time to do it, and I have no problem with that.

I got a reply from Jan :)

And here's what she said (cut-and-pasted): "I have Rowland's book. I finished it this morning. I can't post to the blog - it's an issue with how my ex-employer set up their web mail and it steals my login to Blogger every time. I'm working on it!
I also have your book and Barbara's.
Can you please post to the blog for me? Just say I'm terribly sorry to be the blockage in Australia and I'm on it!"

Like Emma(benconservato) said, Jan just moved house recently, so let's give her some time to turn around. At least now we know that three books are with her, safely. (And Rowland's book is returning to him soon!)

I look forward to see what Jan is going to put in my book (and Barbara's), and look forward to its next stop at Emma's.

btw, Rowland, to answer your question: Little Mo and Friends is Helena Tay.

Hi all! I finally found a way to log in! Now I can post and comment.

I apologise for the loooong delay on my drawings. Yes, I had some issues last year and then moved, but then it seemed so hard to get back to it, how to make up for it, feeling it needed to be astonishingly good to make up for it... so it went on.

So I've finally bitten the bullet and just done them!

I appreciate your patience! Post coming soon!
