FHFS and Some New Patterns

I belong to a wonderful swap group of friends "Friends Having Fun" and our first swap for the year was a hexie swap (or paper piecing).  My gift arrived last Friday from lovely Barb.  Do you want to see -

Inside was the most beautiful hexie table centre - now my friends all know how much I love snowmen and Barb always makes me beautiful snowman item in our xmas swap, so was very excited when I saw she had stitched these gorgeous snowmen for our swap this time. Will be perfect on my coffee table for winter. Love it Barb, thankyou so very much..
These cuties are on both ends of the table centre.
And this is the centre. Such pretty fabrics as well.
Barb had also included this gorgeous hexie fabric, a pretty cottage garden thread, which I love to stitch with and some very yummy Raspberry Lindt chocolate.  Loved my most beautiful gifts Barb, thankyou so very much and as always you know just the perfect thing. 

My gift hasn't arrived at it's recipient yet, so will show you what I made when it does.

At the soiree that Shez and I went to a week or two ago Lisa from FignBerry Creations had some lovely new xmas patterns "hot off the press", and of course I had to add them to my ever growing pile of projects -
Loved both these smaller projects.
Lots of stitching in this one, but it was just beautiful in the flesh.
And I had to have this teddy one as well.  Lots to keep me busy. Cheryl
