A Little Win and Some Applique

I need to start a new project like I need a hole in the head, but I have had this pattern from Lisa of FignBerry called "Frosty's Tree" for a little while and I had bought one of Karen's (Mrs Martins Quilt Shop) lovely kits, so I had everything I needed to start. So Saturday night I set to while hubby's still away recuperating -
Everything ironed on ready to start appliqueing. Now I did have to find a new background as the lovely background in Karen's kit I pinched for another project that it was perfect for, but this linen I had was a good substitute.

Maybe this is the reason I love this project - those cute as can be snowmen.
 
I was very lucky recently to have a lovely win on Theodora Cleave's blog. I do love Barb's beautiful handpainted buttons.
 
The prize included one of her new patterns released recently "Zac the Donkey" (my granddaughters are eyeing this one off), and

these lovely gift cards. Barb told me these were released back in her Woodcutters Daughter years, so quite a keepsake.
Four designs in all. Wouldn't they make lovely stitcheries as well. Thankyou so much Barb - I was thrilled. 

Back soon with a little giveaway for - would you believe - my two year blog anniversary already. Cheryl
