'Australia Day Swap' for 2017

Thank you so much to the 8 ladies who joined in with my idea for an 'Australia Day Swap'!
This being the first swap I've ever co-ordinated, it was a good number of people to work with & I hope you all have enjoyed being part of it.
 The criteria of the swap was to send 5 items, each beginning with one letter from the word
AUSTRALIA... one item had to feature the Australian flag, the other items were entirely up to the senders imagination.

I sent my parcel off to Lyn, who doesn't blog but was an eager swapper... thanks for joining us Lyn!
Australian flag bunting... Tape measure... Ice cube trays... Australian wildflower print fabric... Stitchery booklet

My goodies arrived from Susan over at Susan's Sewing Space:
 Australian fabric... Soap... Tattoos... Reindeer fabric... Unhealthy treat.
That goat soap has filled my bathroom with a beautiful scent... & I wrote to Susan that I'm a terribly meany, in that I don't share any treats I'm gifted, so hopefully these ones will last longer than a few minutes after the bag gets opened😄 Thanks again Susan!
 Thanks again to all the ladies who joined in & I look forward to doing it all again for 2018!

Whatever you do on this national holiday - Australia Day - have a great time!

Cute idea. It would have been fun to shop for the items and I guess letters like the "U" you need to be a bit inventive.
