Parcels Sent and Recieved

I have been very busy so haven't had a chance to blog. Work has been really busy and I have started a Diploma of Management that work has organised which is run through TAFE. I'm not sure what I've got myself into as I haven't studied for over 20 years and all the assessments are done online and I'm definitely NOT computer literate. At least a few of my workmates are doing the course so we are going to have study evenings (that's what we are calling them, probably more drinking, eating and chatting than studying).

I have been busy helping Maree make sewing caddies for the Flood victims. They are all finished and we are off to Cleveland on Saturday for the morning tea with the Gum Tree Ladies. It will be good to meet other bloggers in the area.

I have finished and posted my presents for the Colour Swap organised by Maree. I can only show the parcel ready to be posted as I wrapped the presents in paper the colour that "??" wanted. When she gets the parcel all will be revealed.


I have also finished and sent my present for the Once a Season swap organised by Cheryll. Again only the parcel is able to be shown until it arrives safe and sound at it's new owner's home then all will be revealed.

Yesterday, a parcel arrived for me. It was my Colour Swap present from Cheryll. I chose the colour Green, which isn't very original for me as my favourite colour is green and my home is painted green.


You had to send a fat quarter, a thread, something to eat and something pretty all in the colour that your swap partner asked for. Here are all my presents.


I received Dove peppermint chocolates, green drawer liners, a green facewasher with my initial emboidered on it, soap and hand cream to match and a green bag to put all my goodies in.


I also received green fabric, cotton, emboidery thread and ribbon.
I love all my presents and feel very spoilt.
Thankyou very much Cheryll for my presents.
