God Save the Queen Swap

Recently I took part in The God Save the Queen Swap arranged by Lynda of Hookin' With Laalaa.  My swap partner was Joanne of Rose & Dahlia, a blog that was new to me.
   This was the parcel that I sent to Joanne, decorated with a crocheted brooch and a card.
I had decided to make everything for this swap, with the addition of some choccies.

A tapestry Union Jack key fob/luggage label,
 with a crown on the reverse.

 Bunting in London fabric.
A red, white and blue lavender sachet, with lavender from my allotment.
 A bracelet of glass, blue pearls and a golden crown.
 A knitted tea cosy.
 This is the parcel that the lovely Joanne sent to me,
with a crocheted brooch and gorgeous card.
 Inside were :-
Two tea cloths.
 My husband does most of the drying up so I think he will like these! :)
 A stamp cross-stitched using tapestry wool, beautifully made.
Bunting, I think this will be great for my son's birthday as well as the Jubilee.
Union Jack cupcakes cases,very useful as I might be known to make one or two cupcakes occasionally ;) .
Several lengths of ribbon
 and a tin of shortbread.  Yummy!
 Thank you Joanne for my gorgeous gifts, I love them all.  I thought we had chosen some very similar items - the crocheted brooches, bunting and edibles from M & S.
Thank you also to Lynda for arranging another great swap.

Wow, you did amazingly well! What lovely items Joanne sent you. It's really funny because I found your blog through a google search of Cath Kidston stuff...but I've been following Joanne's progress with the stamp tapestry on Instagram and Twitter - and didn't realise it was for a swap etc. Funny how we all move in the same circles really!
