A Seasons Swap

It is cold, cold, cold. I need something to cheer my winter days up, so here is another swap.
It is winter here; summer in the Northern Hemisphere (although some have told me it really does not look/feel like it).
So this is a "seasons' swap. You can pick a season and fill a litre/take away container with items pertaining to the chosen season. (could ask your swap partner which is there favourite season).
One item has to be something hand made.

Some ideas -

Winter- a new mug, tea/hot chocolate, knit a mug cosie/hat/scarf, sew a mug rug, winter-ish fabric, DMC threads, buttons, sweet items to sweeten up a day, little stationery kit, a ball of wool, favourite soup/stew recipe

Summer - make a mug rug, dishcloth,sun hat, buttons, DMC threads, summer fabric, something for the beach, items in summery colours, salad recipe

Autumn - items in autumn colours, Halloween-ish things (if partner celebrates), make a mug rug, mug cosie, tea cosie, a ball of wool

Spring - fabric, other sewing bits and bobs, DMC threads, herbal teas, flower themed things, new hand cream, soap, seed packets (check customs - a big no-no to be sent to NZ and probably Australia too), cotton (to either knit or sew with)

The idea is to get to know your partner a bit and tailor something to their interests/hobbies. Anything goes really. You do not need to spend a lot of money - think of colours around a season perhaps.

Open worldwide. Please leave a comment below if interested. I will close comments/sign ups on August 25; have partners up just after and all items need to be in the post by September 30. That should give everyone plenty of time. It will be up to you to contact your partner

Please make sure that people can contact you - non-bloggers are able to participate - just let me know your e-mail address. Have fun!
