Aussie Aussie Aussie ... Oi! Oi! Oi!


Australia Day is approaching (26 January) and I feel, as an Aussie, I should host an

I sometimes feel that us Aussies aren't as patriotic as we should be and I want to play a part in some sort of good old "mate ship" and show some kindness to a fellow person and give some lovin'.

The way I thought we could "celebrate" is to send 9 items to a fellow swapper.  Now the way these items are to be chosen are – they have to start with each letter in "Australia".

A – Australian Made item (you could make it)

U – Utensil, Ugly fabric

S – Sunflower seeds, Smiley fabric

T – Tea Towel, Trims

R – Ribbon

A – Apron

L – Lilac, Lavender, Lolly

I – Ink pen

A – Apple fabric

That is just some ideas I have come up with on the spur of the moment… but I am sure you all can come up with others.

Anyone interested?   Leave a comment or email me. 

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie.
Oi!  Oi!  Oi!

PS: A couple have asked about "posting date"... 16th January .. 
PSS: Sign up closes on the 6th January..
PPSS: Only open to Australian residents (sorry to overseas people!), due to there being so many items, it could be too heavy to post..
