Hello Gillian :-)))) No, not finding that key does NOT exclude you - bearing in mind it is the LEAST of the things I continually loose... 3 Definites so far :-) - leave your address in my inbox (more private and I will forward to the others) Most of the discussion will happen in Mail Art Books from textile and mixed media - a swop - that ok I hope. I have just also written the format down there - 10high x 41 cm long, 4 fold accordion. THANK YOU for participating :-)
