Button Swap

As some of you will know I signed up to a Button Swap hosted by the lovely Kitty Ballistic over at Crafteroo and I was originally partnered with Pennydog. However Kitty was left without a partner and as I had recently sent Pennydog a Secret Santa gift we agreed to do a three way swap.

Here is what was sent to me and yes the chocolates from her new business Truffle Piglet really are to die for!

 The handmade sketchbook which was so well made has already been sketched in and its just the right size to slot in my bag.

How cute is the button decoration!

Below is what I sent Kitty hopefully she got the reference from the film Full Metal Jacket, it was on the other day and inspired my embroidery.

This is the back, i've never finished an embroidery before so just used card, pretty paper and wedged into place.

I also sent some Chocolate Buttons as she doesn't get them over in The Netherlands. I know she has received them so I can post what I sent. This is up there with my favourite swaps me thinks!

THAT'S where it's from! I knew the phrase, and couldn't place it. Possibly because, and I know you might not believe me, I have never seen 'Full Metal Jacket'. :D

Anyway, thank you again for my swap goodies, which are fab. The chocolate buttons didn't last long though - I was very good, and shared with Mr B. :-)
