Flippity heck Helen! I make Anzac biscuits for my sister in Singapore... Its the thought that really tickles her - I have been known to add a school package of bbq shapes etc. That collection for her is wonderful. She will relish it all!

I'm sure your daughter will love getting her parcel. When I had 12 months o/s back in 88/89 my mum sent me a Christmas parcel. The main request was vegemite! If I remember right, the postage cost about 3 or 4 times the vegemite! There was nothing better than dipping your finger in the vegemite when feeling homesick!

What a great mom! :-)

Thats crazy... Im heading to London in July Helen if you would like another package taken over. I could post it for you from London...offers there. xx


My friend Clare her daughter is currently teaching in London. It was Jen's birthday yesterday so her mum sent her a care package, no birthday present just tim tams etc etc and yes her postage was a similar price twice the price of its contents


You are a good mother!
Cute sewing kit and supplies.

No wonder you were Barnardos Mother of the week!


I feel your pain with the postage Helen.....I have sent a few care packages to my son and his GF in London - they were missing some goodies from home..most expensive Frruchocs in history!!! LOL. But it was totally worth it. Of course when I visited them I had to take a suitcase full (well almost) of thei favourite things.


extreme postage costs but what a wonderful package! Congratulations too! xoxo

A great package to send her, and I guess you was doing a happy dance when she asked for a sewingkit. Always so fun to make something for the kids when they are asking for it :)

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
