Afternoon tea cross stitch exchange

Hi everyone, the  afternoon tea cross stitch exchange gift I sent to Jewel has arrived!
  I sent one of my own cross stitch designs, the Tea Time cross stitch pattern from my Etsy shop, together  with my first hand made teapot necklace, thankyou cards and tea tags, some teabag holders, a cupcake fridge magnet and matching  holder.

I have also received Jewels gift, I will show them in my next post over the weekend.

More photos below.

You can get some of the items from the links below:
Tea Time counted cross stitch pattern available to purchase from me, just email me in my profile.
Digital download teabag holders from Suzie Q’s crafts on Etsy here
Thankyou cards and tea tags are free downloads from Bianca’s Pretty Blog here

Alenka’s Printables blog has lots of freebies for afternoon tea here

Sorry the photos are the wrong way around!
I punched the corners with a pretty corner punch and cut the pink card with fancy edged scissors
Hope you like them!
Welcome to my new followers and thankyou for all of your lovely comments!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    So pretty! I've never done anything like the things that you have done, but I think that I should start. Everything is so pretty.
