I finished Pat's page and mailed it off to Ellen. I have a pic of it, but do not know how to transfer it from an email to this blog. I am so techno dumb. I received Jean's book. I will tackle it in a few days.
This is fun.

Since I am a newbie to altered books, please share with me wether you are making a mini-quilt, just layering fabric or using paper. I could use some input.

I am sorry but I am really not going to have time to be part of this. I thought I had the time but I haven't even been able to get a book to mail out to Cheryl. And now I am coming down with a cold on top of all the busyness. I apologize again for ducking out.

To help, as posts start accumulating, if you remember (I don't always), put "altered book" in the label for posts that pertain to the current challenge. (The label box is below the main text box when posting.) That way, we can search and see all the altered book posts at one time if we want.
Also, there's a way to subscribe so that you are notified when there's a new post to the blog. I'll figure that out and let you know how to do that. That way, you don't have to keep checking....
I know if you are already using an RSS or news reader, you can add the blog to that. If that means nothing to you, never mind.

2d, Jan, Rayna's class was fantastic, you'll have a great time at QSDS! I LOVED the batiking. It's easy and fun and the screen printing is a blast too. I will post pictures later today to my blog and one pic here with a link to the others.
3d, congrats to Cheryl, woo-hoo for the ribbon. Is there a website you can send us to, Jan?
Last, yay for almost everyone getting on the blog. I feel like this is going to really help make us a little online fiber group. Thanks to Diane for kickstarting us!

There are three words written on it; I'm not sure you can see what they say. You'll just have to wait until you see it in person. I'm not telling.
People drop out of classes towards the end of May so get on the waiting list and hope you get in. That's what I plan to do. What classes are other people taking?

Thank you Jean for summarizing what we know to date.
I know Jean brought up the insurance thing. As far as I understand, at this point in time, we would only be reimbursed for our materials if a book was lost. I don't think it's worth spending the extra money each time we ship for that, but I will go along with the majority.

OK, here's the book Diane sent me for my blank slate. It's an exciting story of love and adventure. I'm disappointed, though, because the monkey mask was missing! May have to make my own. After I read it for an hour or two, I decided to scan it so people can see what the book looks like in its unaltered state (except I removed Diane's contact details to protect the, er, innocent?). It's about 6" square, with 6 hard pages including the covers, or 12 front and backs.... Can I pick any page or do we have to do them in order? Ooh, decisions, decisions!
