Fernhill and igloo





On the day when local children built an igloo,
which made the snowman smile (or is it because he has a new hat?),












          
   I finished Fernhill, button BOM by Lynette Anderson,
which I bought from Fobbles.



Some of the fabric is Lynette's own design, the rest from my stash.
All the buttons have now been stitched on.
I have also stitched on a sleeve, so I can hang the quilt up.



















Embroidery threads: Weeks Dye Works, as suggested by Lynette.
Hand quilted with: King Tut and Finca No16.
