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.
