Snowbound: Block One Completed

Snowbound block #1 was completed this afternoon. This project is fun to work on. It is a freebee by Bunny Hill Designs. I'm not using the recommended fabrics, but chose my own.
Thanks to my Mum for the pink fabric for the cupcake and all her advice!
Since the pieces in this project are very small (the total block is 9x9") I chose to use the fusing applique method using Steam-a-Seam and blanket stitches to permanently attach the pieces to the background. The snowman is made of wool felt.
And look what postie brought, just after I attached the last thread of Snowbound:

The kit for part 2 of Le Jardin, also by Bunny Hill Designs. Guess what I will be working on later today ;o)

And postie also brought some fabrics which Ineke sent me to add to my rather meagre quilting stash. Thank you, Ineke!
