New Start & Christmas Presents

Despite my determination to get the Snowbound top finished before the end of the year, I caved and started Postcard Cuties for Winter, also by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs:

The blocks are quite small and such fun to work on. This is block 1. It still needs a star button attaching to the top of the tree. I ordered the embellishment kit which hasn't arrived yet.
I'm so glad I ordered the fabric kit, which contains the original ones which Anne chose when she designed this pattern.


Here are some of my Christmas presents:

From my parents a Christmast isssue of an Australian qulting magazine, a pattern by Lynette Anderson, a very cute cat statue. The cat paw wasn't included in my presents ;o)

My nephew bought us this cute birdie.

And my niece bought these toy rats for our four furry friends.
She also bought me two books by Barbara Erskine and a CD of the musical Mary Poppins. Considering that she is in college and earns her pocket money during weekends and holidays, it is so generous of her to buy us presents!

Great presents, Anne Marieke!

Those little blocks are quite addictive for Postcard Cuties, as I am sure you are finding out! Great work!

Wat een leuk blok weer, ik kan me heel goed voorstellen dat je daar aan wilde beginnen en volgens mij volgen er dan snel meer.
Veel plezier ermee.

Groetjes Yvon.
