October Snow Happy Heart Block

So, September came and went in the blink of an eye and it is already time to share with you my finished 'Snow Happy Heart' block for October.



The October heart pattern was generously released by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs at the beginning of last week. I downloaded the pattern and got to work making up my block for October.



Of course at the end of October comes Hallowe'en and Anne's cute, little snowman is carrying a bucket to collect his treats in! 



To add an Autumnal feel to the background of my block this month I embroidered two little pumpkins.



They also fit right in with a Hallowe'en theme and I am pleased with how they look!



Over the weekend I have been busy working on the Gail Pan embroidery pattern which was from the  workshop I attended in September. It is called 'My Stitching Things'.  I really would like to get the stitchery finished so that I can make up the folder.... hopefully by the end of the week! 



I am linking this post to 'Design Board Monday' hosted by Cath over at 'Bits and Bobs'  as well as to the latest embroidery party hosted by Sue at 'Super Mom - No Cape!'. Why not pop across and see who else has linked up!

  1. I am completely in love with your Snowmanhearts. You have them assembled so beautifully.
    The submission of Gail Pan is also great. Have already looked in the net. But where can I buy the matter? Unfortunately I can not find anything :-(((
