Letter boxes

Last Friday John and I took a trip out to Pheasant Creek to eat cake at the Flying Tarts
and walk to Masons Falls.

This area of the Great Dividing Range, Kinglake and surrounds,was devastated by fire in 2009 and tragically 147 people died.  To help the community recover a number of arts projects took place including the Letterbox Project, the idea of Marion Oakley.  Here are a few of the letterboxes we encountered on Friday.

The minute I set eyes on this sweet pattern I knew I had to stitch it.
If you would like to stitch it too please follow this LINK to fabulous Needle Knowledge where wonderful Cheryl shares so much.  Huge thanks to Cheryl for her generosity. 

Have a wonderful day


  1. Those letter boxes are fun and decorative

  3. That's a lovely photo of you, Mel. Cute stitchery.

  4. I love the letterboxes....

  5. What a lovely sight, those happy letter boxes are! They would almost (almost...) make receiving bills and other nasty mail pleasant! I don't I have ever been to Mason Falls! I will need to check them out!

  6. What a wonderful project those letterboxes are, Melody, bringing life and colour to what had once suffered such devastation. Thank you for showing us. xx

  7. Love the letter boxes wonderful to see kinglake looking so good.

  8. Wow! So good to see you looking so gorgeous girl!!! I love those letter boxes. Some very talented people there. Sorry I haven't been able to catch up with you. Angel hugs.

  9. Hi Melody - I have a fascination with letter boxes and I do remember seeing these ones on tv and the project to build them. What a wonderful initiative, and they still look as cute as ever!

  10. I remember those fires....so tragic and awful but the letter boxes are a beautiful tribute to those who lost their lives.
