a circle of love, now complete

Remember the amazing “Corner to Corner” project that I was included in, and posted about just over a year ago?  You can read about it in my original post from December 2013 here

Well the Corner to Corner journey has finally ended. During the last three+ years, the tenugui has traveled from participant to participant, holding small gifts for the receiver and wrapped with a growing string of notes from each receiver along the way. The final gift has been delivered and now the string of notes has been sent back to the originator of the project, Joanne in Japan.

According to Francesca in Italy, who has been tracking the package and organizing the project, the tenugui has traveled as far north as the Arctic Circle and south to New Zealand. The beautiful cloth, tiny gifts, hand-written cards and home-made notes traveled to Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Faroe islands, Switzerland, UK, US, Canada, Belgium, France, Basque Country, Poland, New Zealand, Germany, Norway and Japan. What an amazing journey!

 It’s been so much fun to get to know the participants of the “Corner to Corner” project and “Corner View” participants just a little bit better and to read their posts as they received their gifts and notes, and then sent the tender package onto the next person. It’s a creative circle of love, now completed.
