Books Posted At Last!


Well I finally posted my books yesterday. It was such an intense process at the end, working every evening and weekend to get them finished, that it feels odd now to be doing 'nothing'! I don't know how long they will take to arrive, but if you can let me know when you get them. I hope you all enjoy them.

Angela, they look fantastic! Can't wait to get mine - I'll let you know when it arrives. It's a bit like posting a child, once you get that far, and of course, all of yours are going overseas!

ronnie said...

well done you! and yes of course I'll let you know when it hits town (I wonder where one will surface first?) hope you can enjoy a good lie down now!

Carol said...

Just wonderful. Congratulations on such a big endeavour. Looking forward to getting mine.

dinahmow said...

Yes, I'll let you know when mine comes in.

Amanda said...

Congratulations Angela! Well done! Will be in touch when mine arrives. Post from the UK can take as little as 5 days and of course, a lot longer too...

Ampersand Duck said...

Yay! Good on you, can't wait to see it.

Does that mean I'm the last one? I've lost count...

Angela said...

Thanks all.

Sure your not the last one Ampersand Duck. We've had 4 books so far, mine will be 5. So that means 2 more if I'm right?

Ampersand Duck said...

Oh, phew! Not that it's bad, someone has to be last, after all. I just don't want to feel like I'm holding us back!

Amanda said...

No,no you're not the last - there's me too! And I think Carol is still on the go as well?

Angela your wonderful book has arrived! What a wonderful mix - so sad, and then the light-hearted punch at the end! What a laugh! And it's a really beautiful book/object too. Congratulations!

Angela said...

Thanks Amanda. Glad to hear it has arrived safe and sound. I am sure you all understand the anxiety in sending something so precious, that you've put so much work into. To quote Sara - like posting a child.

ronnie said...

well angela - I trust you'll be pleased to hear that your 'baby' arrived safe and sound (and soulfully, stunning) to the creek today.

I am in awe of every little creation that has arrived thus far in the mail - each one becomes my new 'favourite' and then I get the whole collection out and look again at the first pieces and realise how impossible it is to play favourites!

don't they all look amazing together!!!!

thank you angela - I love it!

Angela said...

Thanks Ronnie and Di (for your lovely comment on my blog). I was starting to get a teeny bit anxious, glad they've arrived and are so well received! I agree Ronnie - they do make a beautiful collection, and its difficult to have favourites when they are all so different.

Ida said...

Hi Angela. Mine also arrived and am very impressed. An original idea!! A lovely take on the poem. Thankyou very much.

Ampersand Duck said...

Oh my. I just (finally) got to my mail box and it had arrived. It's fantabulous, and the ending made my snort wine all down my front. Thanks!

Angela said...

Ooops! Hope it wasn't red wine on a white top! Thanks.

SCB said...

Hooray, hooray, I've got mine too! I've been keeping quiet, feeling a little anxious and disappointed to find my mailbox empty (apart from bills, of course), but there it was yesterday and it's lovely! Thank you very much Angela - beautiful work.

Angela said...

Thanks Sara. It took its time, glad you've got it at last. That's everyone now, I can stop fretting.
