I followed Anne's instructions for appliqueing the snowman design to the heart fabric and then did as I had done last month and appliqued the heart to a piece of cream background fabric finishing all the applique with a hand worked blanket stitch.
As the pattern features an appliqued heart and February is the month of 'Love', I decided to embroider the word 'Love' onto the background below the heart. I then added some flying geese blocks and some strips of fabric to make the block 12.5 inches square.
In keeping with the 'Love' theme, I also added some chain stitched hearts to one of the strips of fabric making up the block.
I couldn't wait to see how this block would look next to the one I made for January, so I stitched January's and February's blocks together and I am delighted with how things are looking so far!
Thank you Anne for another beautiful pattern!

I just realised when I was looking at the photographs while writing this, I missed out the cross-stitch 'buttons' on the February snowman... will have to go and put that right!
