Another finish!!

A big happy dance going on here!  My Merry Mouse-mas! quilting was finished last week.  I attached the piece binding, finishing it yesterday.  Yeah!  It turned out pretty cute.  Here's a video showing the individual blocks and border.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you enjoyed the little video.

The Enchanted Garden

The Enchanted Garden is another freebie BOM that I have been working on lately. By Shabby Home, this one includes patchwork, applique and some embroidery.  Check it out here

Initially, I tried to make mine in similar colors to the original.  But, I was not very happy with my results.  So, I decided to try something else.  I have used some of my Japanese fabrics, some Lynette Anderson fabrics and a few others.  Luckily, I had a very large piece of linen fabric that was originally intended for another project I decide not to complete.

This is the upper left section.  So far, there are four blocks for the top row.  Here's the next one:

And another:

And the final section:
Lots of little petals and leaves for that middle section.  Now to wait for the next part. :)

I have been playing around with a few corner blocks for my Annabelle in Wonderland.  This one finished up very quickly.  He or maybe she...makes me smile.  :)  Meet Shroomie:

This corner block is only 6" square.  Next, a very small door with a very big keyhole!
