More Parcels from Snail Mail Penpals - Thankyou

It's been such a treat receiving all the wonderful little parcels of goodies from the gals in my snail mail group as we celebrated our 4th year during June/July.  Here are the others that have arrived.....
From Janet

From Lorraine
From Melanie
From Terry

From Carole
And now I'm having fun putting all these little goodies to good use around my home :)  Hugs to you all!   Looking forward to another year of seeing some great snail mail in my letter box - Sure beats coming home from work to find bills!  Have a great week everyone.

Love getting Parcels!

My snail mail group is currently celebrating it's 4th anniversary, so lots of little parcels are going back and forth between the 12 of us living in Australia and the US.  Here are some of those that have arrived so far:
This from Peggy in Texas

From Lynda in Tassie

From Lyn in New South Wales

And then I was lucky enough to find yet another parcel in my mail box from my Stepmum Heather who lives near Ipswich in Qld............ some lovely chook motive material that is looking like a set of quirky placemats and coasters to me .............................

What do you think?
With the lovely cold weather, I've finally dragged out the crochet hexagons again to continue on with the grandmothers garden................ a work in progress........ slow progress it would seem, but at any rate it is beginning to take shape and looking like the grandmothers garden........ an inspiration for my english pieced hexies for the "one flower Wednesday" group.

This will just be a rug for the loung room, so with a bit of luck........... ok, maybe  alot of luck, it may actually get finished before Winter ends.............. hmmmmmm
Well, it seems I need to get to and do some other bits and pieces, but before I go, I thought you might like to see my little helper here at the computer "helping" me  - Thanks Scruffy, what a shame you can't do the housework   LOL
