The bunnies cross-stitch patterns were in a Precious Moments Designs by Gloria & Pat Baby Book - Book PM 8. (You can see them on the cover of this copy (CLICK HERE) available at Amazon.) I thought they would be adorable additions and they fit perfectly into these patches, so... there they are!
The snowdrop flowers are from Embroidery for all Seasons by Diana Lampe. (I use this book so much! I am right-handed, but it includes left-handed instructions too.) The tree is inspired by the Pencil Pine in Diana Lampe's book. I changed the colors, omitted the nuts, and made a tall tree trunk.
And I give full credit for the swing to my husband. I was wondering if I should add a bird or a nest to the branch when he asked what my plans were and told me he saw a swing there. I think I pulled it off okay. (I hope!) And, it certainly adds more than the mere snowflakes I had planned for the creamy triangle of fabric.
I had just enough small white buttons to make one last button snowman. I picture this snowman dancing or trying to catch snowflakes.

This was such a fun block to work on! And this Round Robin has been so much fun. The ladies all do such wonderful work! My blocks should be home tomorrow so I can share more of the gorgeous work from this great group of ladies.
