    Christmas runner and gifts from Down Under

    I met the most awesome lady from Australia through a swap on this board. We have continued to stay in touch. I just received this table runner, fat quarters and Chocolate Roses from her today. The runner has koalas, parrots and kangaroos. I couldn't wait till Christmas!

    Isn't it fun to get something that has been done by someone else? I have a friend that lives in AZ that we visit every year, I always take something for her and she always has something for me.

    What a wonderful gesture. She sent a little piece of her home land to you with those wonderful fabrics.

    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I love that u two are staying in touch. Buddysmom has been my best friend for over 5 years and we have never met. I am on the west coast and she on the east coast and we met on an eBay item and we send each other things all the time. Stay in touch with your friend, it is so wonderful. What a sweetheart for sending you theses wonderful things. I love my friend Kimberly like my sister. She posts on this site al the time.

    Thanks for all the comments. She wrote last night that she and her Mum may come over in a year or 2. I'm already excited!
