Snowbound # 9 & More Post From Australia

Here is my snowman for September (Snowbound, Bunny Hill Designs). I'm still working on the one for August in his little cart. He has still got some work to be done on him.
As I have decided to go with a different layout for this project, I will be making some small changes to previous blocks, to make the fabric which I have chosen for the sashings (see pinkish birdie) and for the little squares in between the sashings (see hat and bird's wing) work better. Not a lot of work to do and it will make the whole layout pull together a lot more (here's hoping!)
Today, postie brought me a little package from Australia with My Garden BOM (Lynette Anderson) blocks #2 and #3, and I got word that block #4 is also in the post already. That's the nice thing about starting a BOM late! You get lots of blocks to play with within a short space of time.

In the background there is another fabric from the Evening Mist range from Moda Fabrics. Ineke and I just couldn't refrain ourselves from ordering some more fabrics from this beautiful range, so we have lots to choose from.
Remember I told you a while back about the family of collared doves living in our garden? I'm happy to report that another baby dove has shown up. I haven't yet had a chance to take his/her picture, as he/she is being pestered by a huge adult wood pigeon that has also taken up residency in our garden.
Thanks for your lovely comments. They really are very inspiring.
