Hi Amy. I posted off my Teddy Bear parcel Friday. There was some unused weight allowance when it went on the PO scales so I whizzed across the road to our op shop, and 4 teddies were added. No time for photo
Good on you, Sue!!!!! More hugs for the children. :))
That made me laugh, Sue. I just sent off a 10 kg parcel full of toys. I didn't seal it before going to the PO as I don't have accurate enough scales at home to weigh properly. I had a carrier bag with me full of bits and bobs and just kept adding handwarmers and small toys until the parcel was full enough. The postmistress, fortunately, knows me well and has everlasting patience . All our teddies are going to have a great time when they arrive in SA.
That's what I usually do also Valerie . Unfortunately I forgot to take extra bits and bobs with me this time.... lucky it was op shop day, and lucky it is across the road. I also have patient PO staff who know what I am doing ( have sometimes added bits to the parcel themselves
TOYS - 710
HAND WARMERS - 788
SQUARES - 5848
Thanks so much Susanne for the extra bounty for the children. Aren't you clever to top off the weight.
I knowthat it is never too late to send toys, even if they have missed the picnic!
A local charity shop has donated these lovely toys, they have more stock than they can manage...... so we will be having a regular supply :))
Another 10 toys heading to SA........
HAND WARMERS: 788
What a fab collection of wonderful toys, Chris. Thank you and thank you to the very generous op shop.
I think my faves are the handknitted teddy, top left.....love his outfit......and the cheeky monkey with his hands together, trying so hard to be good, so that he can be picked for the next shipment to SA and get a big hug!
Just took another look and I spy a mother kangaroo and her joey.....did they escape from the London Zoo, perhaps?.....lol
What a lovely group of picnickers. The party will surely go with a swing.
These look so warm. I love the green one. It looks very saucy.
Neat, neat, neat, as always, Diana. :))
My fave is the pair on the right......a gorgeous, rich colour. :))
Thanks Valerie and Bev.
It's a rich red heather. I did a hat & hand-warmers set in the same color. I'm working on your stripes ... kind of.
