Lovely Easter/Spring Swap! & Flower Brooch

Hello to all you ladies, like many of you I have taken part in the Easter/Springtime Swap that was so kindly arranged by Pixedust. I was paired up with the lovely Blueberry Heart and these are the lovely parcels I had delivered this morning!

A hanging heart in the cutest fabric patchwork, a beautiful yankee candle in "Cherry Blossom" along with a candle holder with butterflies and flowers painted over it. The most pretty hanging egg decoration in a duck egg blue colour, and a lovely picture of easter eggs. Thank you so much to Blueberry Heart for such a beautifully thought of gift, I am so thrilled with everything and can't wait to arrange all these lovely things with my easter decorations next week!

I have been admiring everyones efforts on making the fabulous flower brooch from Little Gem's tutorial, so I have had a go too. I had lots of felt left over and did not want to waste it so I used it up to make this brooch. I love the colour green as you can see, and I think it looks ok? do you? thanks so much to Little Gem for being so generous in sharing her lovely tutorial with us all!

Hope you a re all having a lovely week so far! Speak to you soon. Lisaxxx
