Destination SA...

Okay, so I waited until the last possible day to send out my Stitcher's Angel package, (actually I posted it one day late on 31st October), but I thought it wouldn't be so bad it was only crossing a state border, not headed for those countries experiencing the striking postal workers. Obviously I was very wrong - it appears that Australia Post has joined their international colleagues. What other explanation could there possibly be for the 10 days this package took to go about 850Km? So I duly wrapped the gifts and packed them in a bag, The bag features the design from Tozz's corner, which was meant to be an applique, but well I'm sure any one who comes here often knows my story about not being good at directions.
The packages included this sewing organiser, complete with a Bronwyn Hayes stitchery from her Miss Millies Flower Patch book.
Oh, inside I included a few sewing essentials in the pockets.
There was this covered notebook embellished with the rose stitchery from Helen at Hugs and Kisses, complete with an attached bookmark.
The last package had the Cinderberry Stitches Needle wallet designed specifically for this swap, but it appears I did not photograph the completed item? Naomi was my secret stitcher, go here and say hi.
Little happening in the craft space at the moment. I seem to have been afflicted with the "it's too hot to do anything" bug that is going around these parts at present.
Happy Creating

They look lovely :-) Your work is always so beautiful and thoughtfully put together. At least it got there though!

Seems that I'm not the only one loving Miss Millies Flower Patch. And sticking to directions is not my strong side either. Beautiful work

your gifts turned out beautifully.
I second the 'it's too hot to do anything' what is January going to be like?
(we are cooking in the heat too)

Lovely collection of pressies and good choice of "essentials"! The butterflies look very pretty as a stitchery.
