My FHFS from Melody

How lucky was I to receive all of these beautiful gifts from the Melody.  I had been waiting to get a photo of the hexi bag, It is stunning,

Melody also included all of these other goodies, a tin filled with blue and green buttons, fabric, cottage garden threads, button, teddy print and Lindt chocolates( Andrew (hubby) informed me they were his favorite) hence why they went very quickly.

Melody also included some goodies for Angus.

Hexie swap revealed!!

My fabulous hexie parcel arrived with my birthday gift from none

other than our Swap Momma extraordinaire Cheryll so I’ve waited very patiently to open this parcel LOL…… and then because of the week I’ve just had I actually didn’t open it till after the deadline!


Here it is all wrapped up waiting for me to patiently open it……not!


I finally ripped it open to reveal all these gorgeous hexie goodies!!!



Here is a closer look at all the beautiful hexie’s Cheryll sent me, not one pouch but three pouches in different sizes for all my numerous projects on the go… did Cheryll know this?? I thought it was a well kept secret Smile



I love the little hexie scissor fob……


This beautiful pouch was full of hexie papers and hexie templates,I was  sooooo spoilt by Cheryll!


I just have to show you the back of this gorgeous pouch…. isn’t it just beautiful! Thank you so much Cheryll for making our first Friends Having Fun Swaps for 2015 such a fun swap! Sending lots of 0000 & XXXX’s your way Smile

I would also like to send a big thank you to Peg and Shez our swap Momma’s for this swap for all the hard work they do behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly! Now to get to work on swap number two which is a ruler case, anyone have any suggestions on where I could find a pattern for one???/

How lovely to have had a visit from Mr Postie yesterday

Look at my gorgeous table topper I recieved from Ondrea ...

I just adore these sweet stitcheries in amidst the hexagons....

... and there was some treats added to the parcel too.... some lovely choccy and a little compact mirror... it's so pretty...

I took this close up picture so you can see just how much work went into this lovely topper.... all hand sewn and the quilting around the edge another lovely touch...

... what a pretty thread used ...

It's so beautifully done and fits my table next to where I sit EVERY night and sew - doesn't it just breathe happy into that space....

Thank you so much Ondrea, welcome to the group and I'm happy to have been your first swappy in FHFS... love my gift...

Thanks Shez and Peg for hosting the swap and getting us girls all organised....

Righto, Gotto Go.... wet and cold and grey (love it like this for a few days) ... I may need to stay indoors and sew....
