AUSTRALIA DAY 2018 BLOG SWAP

The second year running Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches has organised an Australia Day swap, it was so much fun last year, for me it was a no brainer to join again this year. Thank you so much Anthea.

These are the gorgeous gifts I received this year and my gifts came from Susan over at                  Susan's Sewing Space 
The most gorgeous handmade card, lovely Australian fabric, a gorgeous Tilda pin cushion with a cute little pair of scissors, lovely lace, Ice cube tray with Australian shapes and a very handy shopping list pad.  I love it all thank you so much Susan.

I sent my gifts off to Lyn and she doesn't have a BLOG so I'll post here the gifts I sent to Lyn
A pack of Aussie serviettes, a lace doily, a package of red beads and red buttons, I made a tissue
cover from fabric I received in the Australia Day 2017 swap and a pair or quirky Aussie sunglasses.
I received a lovely email from Lyn saying she loved all of her swap items.

                                                  The fabric is of Australian wild flowers

                                     

                                                     Happy Australia Day everyone.
