Show and Tell and FnwFs

When I went to the post office last week there were some more nice parcels for me... Love long Christmases....

Gifts from my friend Ellyn in Texas...

pretty Hexie bookmark , lovely felt raccoon pattern  and cute Texas thimble  gifts wrapped in great Christmas Fabric..


                           Close up of the cute thimble.....

 Sunny who lives in Maryland USA..

Also wrapped my gifts in this lovely red Christmas fabric. Great handy wee Star card holder, some fabulous Christmas buttons

and a gorgeous Wall Hanging .. Love the colours you used Sunny and it looks great on the wall.

Di now lives in Florida USA.

she stitched a beautiful "M" on a needlecase and cross stitched the loveliest Bell Christmas ornament...



                                                                               sweet snowman ornament from Cheryll in Aussie...

A big thank you to all of you..

These are all lovely ladies who are my blogging friends from around the world and on Friday night the Cheryll is organising the first FnwFs for 2016.
You can pop over to Cheryll's blog to sign on.....

I will be working on a very old UFO that I blogged about HERE way back in 2011. My Postage Stamp Quilt I started with Heidi.....Sadly when I read the post there are three UFOs still in the boxes waiting to be finished...

look forward to sewing along with you on Friday...time for bed now..

  1. You must really love the mail--with all those delightful gifts--
    I have gotten all my sewing organized, finally here and have a new sewing machine--so I have no excuse for not sewing--then again??????
    love, di

  2. It's so lovely to get parcels like that in the mail. But of course, for everyone you receive, you have to send one out!
    Do a Google search "Open Source Live Writer", says my DH who is much more clever than I am regarding computers. The top 2 items should give you a download of this version. I've been using it for several weeks.

  3. so glad it finally got there! and lovely goodies you got from others too. Happy New Year friend!

  4. Lovely late the beautiful wall hanging from Sunny! Quite chuffed to see my little "M" arriving from Florida! Such lovely gifts. So glad you've been spoilt xx

  5. Very pretty stuff and yes its nice to get them a bit late in some ways...glad FNWF is this week - I thought it may have been scrubbed - but only 3 UFOs??? wish I could say that - with a straight face.

  6. See, I'm not late - I'm early for next year!! Thanks for the reminder about FNWF. See you there!

  7. You always have such beautiful pieces to share.

    I have gone back to blogger as it is not allowing the photos to be uploaded again.

  8. Maria , your gifts are beautiful - for a beautiful lady. Your New Year if off to a wonderful start.

    1. Wow Maria. Such gorgeous gifts from your American friends and a beautiful deco from Cheryll. Have lovely to prolong the xmas pressies.

  9. You certainly received some lovely gifts. I'm also missing Live Writer. I don't know what is happening with it. I'm using Blogger at the moment. At least you can now drag photos onto your post. I might have to have a look at what Jenny suggested in her comment.
