Christmas in July….just a little bit late

DSCF7800

My swap partner I was sending to was Michell and I’m late in posting a picture of what I sent to her because her parcel was returned to me and I had to re-send it and hold my breath hoping it would actually reach her this time. I don’t know what’s going on with Australia post as Michell in her email letting me know my parcel had finally arrived told me it wasn’t the only one that hadn’t reach her post box and had been returned to sender??

For this swap I sent for “R” a reindeer table runner….

For “S” I sent a stocking candle mat…..

For “I” Inspirational words I send a small wall hanging with the word “JOY”

I also sent some munchies and then added more after re-wrapping her parcel to re-send to her as a way to say sorry for it being so late ( I forgot to take a photo of these ) and Michell said they arrived just in time for her to feast on the clinkers after a hard day at work  LOL….

This swap was a lot of fun to participate in and I want to thank Cheryll for being such a wonderful swap momma with organising this swap and for Michell for being a very patient swap partner Smile

Lovely gifts Barb - I am sure Michell loved them when they finally arrived. Australia post has been good to mee the last few months but I had a 'stage' where anything I posted too forever to get there.

Just gorgeous gifts Barb !!

Cheryll said...

Well it wasn't your fault so Michell understood. And besides your gifts were well worth waiting for. WOW they were perfect choices.
Thanks for playing along with us!

Beautiful gifts Barb. Gorgeous stitching. So glad they made their way there eventually. I'm not sure what is going on either with au post. I had something take three weeks from just the other side of town. Conversely I ordered something from America last Friday and it arrived yesterday!!

Lovely gifts, Barb.

Michell said...

Thank you again Barb they were all lovely. I sometimes have things arrive from overseas faster than here in NZ and then some things from overseas can take weeks so wasn't panicking.

Oh these are gorgeous gifts Barb. Michell must have been so thrilled they finally arrived! What's better than a clinker (or three) after a hard day :)
