The parcel started it's journey today! Please post an image in the gallery of the items that you choose to keep from the parcel. Don't show any of the items that you are sending on as it will spoil the surprise for the next recipient.

Can't wait to see how this swap goes.

Here's the stuff I pinched from Nilmerg.

Paper stuff


Fabric and embroidery threads


Little bits for making an Eye-Spy bag and stamps for mum



This has been such fun so far. Thanks, Nilmerg! THe parcel is on it's way again - or, rather will be this afternoon when I get to the post office.  Cheesy

I'm looking at those photos trying to remember what else I included in the bag. Not much I think!
The lady bird is actually a mini-eraser. Do you have the Reject shop bargain store? The pack came from there. The car fabric came from a very cute Boutique Fabric shop in Richmond, Near Hobart and the snake one came from Vinnies! So a piece from either end of the price range!

Thanks for sending on so quickly schnerby, I'm sure all these people further down the chain can't wait to get their hands on it!

I love the fabric! And i'm out of black and white embroidery thread, so overall I think I'm quite spoiled.

Here is the goodies I took out of the bag. You can see the edge of my son's jacket as he not-so-patiently waits for me to be done with *his* Percy.


I restrained myself, because there was a heap of gorgeousness in the bag, but nothing that I would actually use, and not just greedily tuck away in my stash. But I got some nice paper embellishments, and a jigsaw I plan on altering unless my train loving three year old steals it (it's got trains on it too), some jumping frogs for my older children, and travel pencils, for sketching on the go (or keeping a grumpy child quiet in waiting rooms).

And these beautiful beaded stitch markers:

Sweet. The Asian paper bits and stitch markers are mine. The other bits are Nilmerg's.
Be careful, though. I just packed the bag (very full!) and didn't weigh it. It was over 500g but the post office lady just gave me a little talking to. If you pass it all on you will also be over the 500g.

Heehee 786g, sealed up. I have yet to see what *my* post office is going to say... I think if I join in with a second circuit I'm going to get one of those 1kg bags everyone's talking about...
