Le Jardin Block #2 and Other Things

Here is block 2 of Le Jardin (Bunny Hill Designs) that I finished last night.

There were only five of those small leaves to do before I left for Scotland. You'd think I would get right back to it upon my return, but the second snowman in Snowbound (also by Bunny Hill) just called too loudly. Sorry for the creases. There are still a few tracing lines visible, which will fade on their own, but not if I iron them.



And as if postie knew that I finished this part last night, the materials for block # 3 arrived this afternoon. Yay! Aren't they pretty?



And to take advantage of the shipping cost from the USA (the fixed-rate envelope takes 7 yards of fabric ;o)) I just had to order a few other bits and pieces and Shabby Fabrics happened to have a sale going on.
Firstly, another Bunny Hill Designs *and* more snowmen: "Postcard Cuties for Winter"


secondly, another Bunny Hill Designs (you'd think I have a thing for them, wouldn't you? ;o)): Simply Hearts, another gorgeous design by Anne Sutton:



and last but not least, a few fabrics which caught my eye, with "From the Heart" in mind, another appliqué and stitchery pattern which I recently bought, by Daisies and Dragonflies from Australia:



Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a very clear picture of this pattern availabe, so you'll just have to wait till I start it.
Hmmm, now, what's next? There is so much to choose from, between all the Chatelaine projects which I have on the go, and all these lovely appliqué/patchwork projects.
It may just have to be a new start: Leanne's House. Block 1 arrived recently and it is soooo gorgeous and fun to stitch!

Hook, line, and sinker as they say here, girl! You are definitely hooked on Bunny Hill. Did you see the embellishment package for Simply Hearts? Very nice! (maybe just a little more enabling going on here!)

Lots of great new projects to keep you busy!
