This year's Halloween Cross Stitched Ornament -To Canada.


The ornaments for the three exchanges I joined, have all been completed. The first for Halloween, was mailed two weeks ago to Canada. My stitching exchange partner tells me, as of last Friday the parcel had not arrived.
The other two ornaments, which are for Christmas, are completed, while awaiting postage. It seems a little early to send them out, before the season.



This my ornament, included was an Australian favourite chocolate bar called, a Cherry Ripe. It arrived while my exchange partner was on holidays

Not at all Rugby fans.


We could hardly be considered Rugby fans. However late last night, when we heard the Wallabies had won their game, we no doubt felt some pride for our nation's gladiators. I heard a spokesman for the USA team, the opponents, interviewed last week, saying they held the world Olympic title over the last 90 years. You can guess I was surprised to think we had beaten their team.
DH was a tad carried away, so raised these Aussie flags in this morning strong winds.
