Jubilee ATC's and parcel

So 3 posts in 3 days I don't know what has gotten into me! Here is the little ATC parcel I sent Laura. We were swapping 2 ATC's, one Jubilee themed one and one any theme. I did go a little over board and did a full Jubilee themed parcel...
So as you can see there are some ATC's, union jack tissues, a 'best of British rosette, a bag of buttons and charms, a paper bag with ribbons in, bracelet and earrings and little telephone box photo (or maybe ATC) clip.

 Here are the Jubilee ATC's. The Crown one I designed myself so I could make a good likeness of the St Edward Coronation crown. The other two are photo's of a scene we made with my Daughter's Happyland playset. She has the Queen in the set so we decorated the 'village' with union jacks and had a tea party in the square!

 The ones above are from a recent cross stitcher mag, The design on the left was the original design and I thought It would look good in red on black aida. I then had the idea of doing it in reverse putting blackwork in the head and spots and leaving the body blank. I'm really pleased with them and I always find blackwork a joy to do.
Above is the Jubilee bracelet and earrings. I found the buttons in my local shop and made them into this linked bracelet and earrings, I've since done a blue and green one for me and a citrus one in yellow, orange and lime.
 No swap parcel is complete without a little parcel of goodies in the form of buttons, charms and ribbon. I love the ribbons above, You wouldn't believe how excited I in the shop when I found it.
Lastly is the feltie rosette. I also sent Laura a knitted bird brooch simular to the blue one I shared a couple of days ago but purple. I've just started a pink bird now.

I hope you are all having a good week. Thanks for stopping by. xxx
