I am waiting to open it until I send mine.

Hi Amy,
totally applaud your patience.  "Waiting to open it?" AND that too a SCHIN LETTER?  the instant I see a letter from any FF member, everything is put on a back-burner, including switching off my mobile. ;D

Got a questions for you all! Is there any problem sending seeds, herbs or any kind of orgánic material to your countries? I've been told recently that every Mail with that kind of things to Australia would be destroyed to avoid any environmental risks about species from outside. I was planning on send you something that could be interpreted as a foreign seed, but I don't want your letters destroyed! What do you think? To Spain there is no problem, I have purchase american seeds before and the package wasn't even inspected for it.

 Bio-security in New Zealand will definitely destroy it.

Thanks Lynette! Good to know!

Giant tropical plant XD. The only way is to test it, Alba. Where are the people on your list from? Couldd you send a random letter with just a seed and see what happenS?

Ok, I am pretty sure people in my list are safe, so I am going to send the letters with it inside! I'll keep some extras for resend if neccesary, just in case!

Hello List 9!

Heather, yours came on Friday, thankyou :D I now feel a little more familiar with Kentucky.

I am cutting this one fine - just sealed the last enveloped, and they'll be in the post first thing tomorrow.

Best wishes all

Robin

I wrote your envelope earlier, Alba :D Of course, none of them have anything in them yet though… *panics*

I have no idea about the seeds, but give it a shot and see what happens  :)

Dear list 6 friends,

I've just gone out of the Post SO ABSOLUTELY HAPPY. I went to the office near work to send your envelopes because the people in the office near home truly hate my letters. This postman grabbed them all and starred and said "these are stunning. How did you do this? This is so beautiful. He showed them around the office and everyone was so happy that there's people still doing this! He sent encouragement to keep the art alive.
Anyway, don't have hight hopes, they are not that great. But I am very happy of how they turned out and to have for the first time EVER someone not related to me or part of the forum saying my work was beautiful. It's super encouraging. :-) I hope you guys like them!

Thanks Andrew. But I wouldn't congratulate me. Their eyes are not trained. They had many, many mistakes. But I wanted to share the feeling and how others still appreciate calligraphy ;-)

Everyone, I'm really sorry but mine will be late. I haven't sent them out yet – I read the date wrong and was certain the deadline was the 15th. So I have something rather elaborate planned, thinking there was enough time. I'm still waiting for a delivery, as soon as that arrives, they're ready to go. Sorry again!

So far, I got Schin's – hilarious! I need to see Las Vegas one day.

I had sworn the deadline was the 15th too. Maybe mine are late as well, then. Sorry if they are!

I'm pretty sure Erica pushed it to the 15th. I certainly hope so because that is when I'm able to send mine out haha. I would go by the date Erica stated on the exchange lists she sent out, which states the 15th. I think we're all okay!

Me too! I thought I was mistaken about June 15. List 7, will get cracking on this weekend!

@Judy, got yours but didn't open it yet. Kudos on being an early birdie. :)
