Brooch Swap 2011

This year I joined the Flower Press Brooch Swap! It was so much fun! Lots of craft people around the world joined in swapping hand crafted brooches. It was kept a secret as to who you would receive a brooch from until it arrived in the mail. The last day for posting was Tuesday 21st June. Here are the brooches I sent off to England:

Orange Printed Heart Brooch and Blue Printed Butterfly Brooch

I couldn't decide on which one, so I sent both!

The brooches wrapped and ready to be sent

My secret brooch swapper sent mine off earlier and it has already arrived!
Em (who writes the Mousy brown blog and lives in North Wales) made me a brooch inspired by one of my own teapots!!!

Brooch By Mousy Brown
Inspired by "Green Printed Teapot with Birds"

I was so surprised that she had made a brooch inspired by something I had made! It is so thoughtful and I absolutely love it! Thank you so much Em! And thank you Susie for the wonderful idea and for organising the whole swap!
