Hexie, Siggy, Christmas Through the Year and MAIL!!!

I received this soft, squishy package from Portugal...
and was so surprised!  I was getting a Pay it Forward ready for Teresa and I receive mail from her (I forgot I had signed her PIF to begin with).  Look at the beautiful gifts I received!
 
A gorgeous colorful round mat (it's on my daughter's library chair....and she'd like it to stay there), a pretty pillow that will look great in my bedroom, a zippered bag that is lined and has pockets (I need to learn how to do that) and has  lovely scented soap inside, an apron from Portugal which fits nicely and little ornaments.  Thanks so much Teresa, I'll treasure them all! 

I then received another package...
from Melody in Melborne.
 
I love the little house!  The stitching is beautiful and such detail...even little buttons and a pieced background.  Doesn't it look great hanging on the mantle.  Thank you Melody! This is from the12 inch mini quilt swap hosted by Cheryll.
 
 
I also received this pretty siggy from Rita in Italy.
 
 
Thank you for this wonderful siggy, I loved the fabric you used.  My siggy for you will be in the mail tomorrow.  Sorry it took so long to finish.
 
And here's my Christmas through the Year...a Mini quilt
 
 
and I've almost finished 2 snowmen and 1 snowflake wall hangings/runners.
 
Now for my hexie:  1 plus 5 pieces of one hidden in the Christmas things(by angels).  Would you believe my daughter's been trying to get me to finish a Christmas/winter wall hanging?
 
 
I guess ghosts don't go well with the angels and Nativity set.
Please stop by and visit Karen who hosts One Flower Wednesday and see all the flowers blooming.
 
Maybe I should keep up with posting so they wouldn't be sooooo longgggg.
 
Happy Stitching!
Danette
