Having a much quieter week this week has meant I have been able to finish off my Snow Happy Heart Block for August. The Snow Happy Heart patterns are lovely free patterns from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. Anne's pattern for August features a cute little snowman enjoying himself on the beach with his bucket and spade.
I thought that he looked like he was having a lot of fun, so I added the word 'Fun' to the background as well as the name of the month.
To add a little extra detail and, because it makes me think of waves on the shore, I added a piece of ric rac towards the bottom edge of the block. I also added a few extra running and cross stitches to give more balance to the block. I am happy with how the block looks now and overall, the quilt is looking very pretty. Here are the blocks to date.
