you are restricted to 2kg for the basic rate and anything over that is a added cost so having finished my items for a swap... I was a bit surprised when my parcel was 100 grams over the 2kg limit and cost just under $50.00 Australia Dollars to mail.
So sad as this added cost will most probably reduced the spirit of participating in swaps with overseas fellow quilters.
have a great day - cheers marc

Love hand piecing so thought I would have a bit of a change, what else can one do when one can't sleep? As my ipad sits on my bedside table.... early hours this morning as one could not get to sleep, I went a browsing and came across a pattern or two in paper piecing .
So of course I waited until the sun was peering into the bedroom before placing an order
not that I will be expecting the order via Australia Post to be here anytime so.
It seems to be quick to receive items overseas then within Australia mail service.

Firstly I have spent the last 14 days home yes that's right home..... Why you might wonder well I had and you might still say have the dreaded flu..... Not nice. So as I had a few balls of wool in my stash I started crocheting a quick thick blanket on and off when I was not coughing or sleeping.... Very simple and basic knee rug kept me warm as I was crocheting
So ladies I have a bit of catching up to do ...... In the home and at work but first got to get my priorities right first off to organise the evening meal then watch pol dark on -ABC Until next time cheers Marc

Well it has been over 25 years since I last done any crocheting.... But the last couple of weeks of a evening I have been bitten by the crochet bug ..... The weather here in sunny Riverland has been a bit cool so the mojo has also slowed down of a evening .... And I have been plodding along with a bit of crocheting ..... The photos don't bring the true colour out ..... The wool colour is called mulberry. Until next time cheers Marc
