Box Swap

A little while ago, I joined a Box Swap organised by Cass. She filled a box full of crafty stuff, and sent it off to the list of players. When you got the box, you had to choose 3 things to keep, and put 3 things back in. This is what I have put in the box - some pattens, a little bit of fabric goodness, and a little needle case. ...this is what I took out - a little fabric bucket, some key chain thingies and a lovely Mother Goose book. The box is off and on it's way again, and this time is heading for Tasmania. Travel well little box, and enjoy the ride. Thanks Cass for organising it.
For those who enjoyed my picture of a grevillia on my last post, this is another one I found on my beach holiday weekend.
. . . and this was a beautiful Tea Tree flower.
8 degrees here tomorrow - brrrrrrr

A whole eight degrees! Oh you must be freezing!!!

Excuse my lack of sympathy but we have hit only about fifteen degrees here today and we are in the middle of Summer. Let me add I speak as one with full knowledge of the bitey cold winds of a Ballarat Winter :-)

Wow, what a great idea - a box swap. Receive goodies, put some more in, wonderful! What fun!

I just looked at the temperature gauge on our verandah - a balmy 13degrees in (sub-tropical queensland)brrr... I might have to go and light our wood fire.

Keep warm,
