Marg Ackland (again, Go marg!) contributes a final bundle from a student at Meadowbank Tafe.
108 pencils from Scotland! Sheila, I wish you could come see the installation!
Robyn Lance donates 52 pencils, brought from her family in Goulburn
Louisa McCaughan (you little gem) has collected a bunch of kids pencils from Hawthorn East, Melbourne. Apparently they are straight from the pre-school craft corner and they use them with their sticker books and scrap books. Cuteness.

sam crawford architects very generously gives 5% of studio time for side projects - which gave us the space to get going with this project. thank you, sam. other people in the studio are doing various research projects, and we are getting ready to hang this project. it still takes up a heap of our spare time, but it's very helpful to be able to work on the project during office hours also. thanks again sca, from claire and felicity.

all the way from antibes, france - thank you, adrian. many happy days at the markets to you.
there's something very satisfying about these weighty numbers from nikita - thank you for sending us so many!
and this excellent parcel from allen kong architects in melbourne. best colouring in on envelope so far, hands-down. thank you.
Huge cheer for Bourke Street Public School staff and students for organising and donating this big collection of pencils - some very beautiful and clever tags, too... thank you! We love all the bright colours and reading all of the tags.
