MEN!!!!!!! Quilts weight heavy...... NEVER take a man's word for it. Oh dear total weight 2.7 kilogram...Yeh right! Total weight of ONE box 6 kilograms How redfaced was I at the post office with 5 boxes all weigh around 6 kilograms and expecting to send them airmail to Zimbabwe for $150 .....Well I sent two boxes and I have three left so back to begging for donatons again. Cost $75 per box, HUH !!! lot different to $25 per box.
At last I have the last lot of quilts packed an ready to go... Off to the post office soon....
Thanks to the generous donations I have $150 to pay for postage and the total weight is 2.7 kilos so maybe I will be able to send them air mail.
The final count of quilts and other things was
Knitted Hats lost count at least 50
Hand made skirts sorry didn't count them came courtesy of Anita

All squeezed very tightly into the boxes.
I am so excited now will have to start on the next lot
