Australia Day Swap

It's the Australia Day weekend here, busy as ever down at the Boat Ramp.  I took part in the Australia Day Swap put on again by Jewell's

This year I managed to be a bit creative with all the letters.  I sent my gifts off to Fiona and it wasn't till I had them all packaged up that I remembered I'd forgotten to take a photo of them so I've had to "borrow" the one from Fiona's blog - thanks Fiona! Incase you don't work it out, we had to use each letter from the word AUSTRALIA for each item
 
I also received a parcel as well, naturally...... mine came all the way from WA, from Anthea of Hibiscus Stitches  and it was filled with lots of wonderful items, just take a look.....


Australian Flag Bunting; Utensil ;Stamps Printed Cotton Drill; Tea light candles; Red Spotty Tea Towel; Afternoon Aussie Tea; Lollies;  Ice Cube Trays;  Aqua Fabric

 
These things will be very useful and a lot of fun, so thanks heaps Anthea!!
 
I've also been busy with a couple of other things ...... some major dental work which is "crashing my style" so to speak with what I'm able to achieve some days!!   So with that I've been sitting and working on a bit of that knitting ..... progress .....
 

So now I'm off to work on it a bit more, and perhaps see to a cook up of meals to put some things in the freezer for later in the week, when I'll be back in the dental chair and feeling very ordinary, definitely won't be feeling like cooking dinner for the family that day!!
Enjoy your Australia Day Weekend everyone

Hmmm dental work - I have a gaping gap at the front of my mouth at the moment due to one of my teeth braking off neatly at gum level - I am in a deep thinking mode at the moment as to what I am going to do about it and 5 other teeth across the front - I have spent a small fortune on them over the last 15 years!! You have put together a great parcel of Aussie day swap presents and received some really nice one also - I have enjoyed doing this swap - something a little different!!
