FNSI and Show and Tell

Last night I decided I wanted a break from the hand quilting I have been doing so after a busy day, late in the afternoon I began appliqueing my teeny hexie flowers and buttterflies to my hexie flower quilt.
I got a lot of the butterlies and all of the hexie flowers appliqued on...
As you can tell I definitely did not press anything before photographing it.
I was really undecided whether I actually liked it when it was done but I think when the flutterbys get their bodies and stitchery antenae it will lift and look much better. I am hoping so anyway.
Thanks Wendy for hosting us once again. It was nice knowing that all over Australia and in other parts of the world I was stitching along with my blogging friends.
More lovely mail for me folks!!!
Some more lovely fabrics to add to my stash and a very sweet Anni Downs kit from generous birthday club ladies Narelle and Sue. Thank you so much girls for your lovely gifts and kind wishes xxx

Also a parcel from my dear friend Shez arrived with the postie too. The sweetest hand embroidered needlecase, beautiful fragant sachet and the cutest frosty card pattern.

Boy very spoilt girl! Thank you Shez xxx
Now some show and tell from Liz of Village Quilters who is generously donating both of them to a Christmas raffle for a charity that is very close to her heart.
The first is Miss Mistletoe in "A Christmas Tail" and I just know she would be very pleased with herself!
and "Christmas Bakeshop" which is full of my little gingies.
Thank you so much Liz for sharing them and I hope they do really well for the hospital.
Well that is it from me as I must dash off and put my glad rags on as I have a girly date with DD.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
