Merry, Merry Snowmen (?)

Should it feel a bit weird making snowmen, when flowers are blooming, the trees are almost green again and the birds are singing? I dont know... But either way, the BOM packages are coming and I dont want to get behind, I really like to finish it before xmas :o) AND its a lot of fun making them. Piecing, applique, stitching - so much fun and variety.

1st block

I will use small buttons for the eyes, they will be sewn on after the quilting is done. I didnt get quite as much done on block 2 during Easter as I planned, because my DH are having an infection in his foot, and the days went by with lots of other activities - nursing/doctors/ hospital etc. But he is recovering well and will soon be on his feet again - both of them.... :o)
Beginning of block 2
The applique is meant to be done with freezepaper and needleturn, but Im not too familiar with that technique, so Im using my machine to do the applique. The only thing I have to change - I have to mirror the patterns. And of course, I didnt think of it at first, so I have some spare reindeers and a bird......

Block 1 and 2
And I have knitted a new cap for Emilie :o)



A week has already gone by, enjoy your weekend and do some sewing :o)

Så flotte blokker! Hvem er det som har den BOM'en? Jeg har holdt på med vinter/jule UFO'er og har enda noen dekkebrikker å gjøre ferdig. Tenker ikke så mye på at det er lenge til jul, syr på det jeg har lyst til. :) Flott strikka lue også.
