Tilda Swap For Claire

My partner in our Friends Having Fun Tilda Swap was Claire of Claire-Bear Quilts. Now that Claire has received her parcel, I can share what I sent her with you. 
I made Claire this wall hanging from a pattern in a Tilda book, Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle. I searched the front yard to find the perfect stick to hang the quilt up with as it matched the hanging. In case you are wondering, no, I didn't mail the stick to Claire! I thought I took a photo of it hanging up but can't seem to find it.
 
It's a bit hard to see but the buttons are
made of mother of pearl.
 
Some lavender sachets made with pretty Tilda fabric. 
I added some chocolate and a sweet little butterfly.

I'm glad you liked your swap items, Claire.
I really enjoyed making this for you.

Thanks to Shez and Peg for this fun swap.
