Autumn Swap Goodies

A while back I signed up to the Autum Harvest and Happy Halloween Swap hosted by Blueberry Heart


I was paired with the lovely Tracy of Mad About Bags fame, and we got in touch and we both prefered the Autumn theme so we got making and gathering and this is the result. 

This is what I received:


lots of Autumnal goodness

 A gorgeous Autumn Wreath


 The prettiest ceramic and felt brooch on a pile of autumnal coloured fabric squares.

A little altered box full of leaf charms and beads

A pack of autumn themed notelets


Two autumnal cross stitch patterns (my current obsession).

In that top picture was a tin of very chocolatey cookies, they are now history ;0)

It is wrong to have a favourite but I really love the brooch lots.

Thanks again Tracy!
This is what I sent, it's nice to be able to show these as i can't show them at the time of making them:



 Well I had to send a bag to Mad about Bags


Thanks Tracy for your wonderful gifts, all very well received and many thanks to Blueberry Heart too for organising this swap.

Now I must crack on with the Christmas Decorations and the Advent Swap makes.
