I know, I know, I know....the poor little birdies are floating!!!!     Silly me forgot their perch!!!!    I'll fix that very soon. I just can't believe I took the photos and still didn't notice...derrrr!!!

floating birdies are okay...that's what makes your's unique....I forgot to cross a 't'! LOL
I did'nt notice it either until I was showing my blocks off at the office! Ah well....I might get to it, I might not!!! It shows how crazy my life has been lately and I won't go there right now!!!
Your blocks look great, love your fabrics.
