Goodies from Australia

Awhile back I left a comment on Leanne's blog.  Leanne lives in Australia and posted a picture of Romantic Homes magazine that she had just bought.  She was excited because it is published here in the US, and she found it there in Australia.  I had just bought the next issue of the same magazine.  After exchanging a few emails, we decided to send an envelope with a magazine or things from our country to the other.  Here is what was in the envelope that I received from Leanne.


She sent a lot of fun stitchery patterns for me to do, and I love the pretty thread and the fabrics.  The buttons are cute.  Here is a close up:


The bird buttons are pretty, but I am in love with the kangaroo button and will find a special project to put him in.   Thanks Leanne for a fun trade.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch. 

Thanks for visiting today!

How fun! I did something with Maria shortly after I started blogging. I wanted a couple of copies of Australian Homespun, which she was kind enough to send me along with a few goodies, in exchange for some faric. Have fun with those kangaroos.

I love to play with such a thing from Hungary. If someone is interested in such a fun mail me. I would very much like tissues from U.S..

It is so much fun to swap goodies with our Blogging mates from other countries.
