Sophie & The Mouse

May I present Sophie, block #2 of Henrietta Whiskers, the free BOM by Bunny Hill Designs.

I'm using a line of fabrics called Samsara by Bernartex exclusively, which makes these blocks quite difficult to plan, but it helps that all the fabrics work well together. A few bits of wool felt, a few threads of DMC, and some embellisments are all I'm using apart from the Samsara fabrics.


I forgot to show you my block #1 of Night Before Christmas, the new BOM by Bunny Hill Designs. A very cute mouse. Don't you just love his pyjamas!?

I have already received word that block #2 of this sweet project is on it's way to me. Yay!
In the mean time, Michele has been helping me find fabrics for Stitched By Me, a beautiful quilt by Lynette Anderson. Marcel gave me the pattern set with buttons for Christmas and I have been wanting to work on it since it arrived in the post. Last week I ordered the muslin background fabric for this project directly from Lynette's website.

But first I'm going to work on block #6 of Leanne's House, because Ineke and I are trying to do a SAL on that one, to give it some much needed TLC.
However, since the arrival of Ineke's new Chatelaine stash, I'm feeling rather alone here (just kidding, Ineke!)

Volgens mij heb je tijd tekort, wat een hoop projecten en ze zijn allemaal even mooi/leuk.

Veel plezier ermee, ik blijf genieten van alle foto's en hoop dat de Ort Master je lekker door laat werken!

Groetjes Yvon.

Your quilt blocks are gorgeous!
I know I should give Leanne's House some attention soon. Sometimes I wish there were more hours in a day...

Love little Miss Sophie! Your Night Before Christmas block is excellent! Ready for the second block?
