I am very late with this block for Jeri, but now my commitment to the Birthday Block Swap is done! I hope it will go with all the other blocks that she has received.
In case you're wondering, this Brown Pelican from South Louisiana, is standing on a piece of driftwood, that has been in the water since Hurricane Katrina, but has finally made it to a cleaned up part of the shoreline right at sunset! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL!

Where has the time gone?!? I can't believe it has been almost 2 months since the last post! I haven't really done a whole lot of sewing, but I do have 2 of the last 3 blocks that I needed to fulfil my obligation. I STILL owe Jeri her block. I had hers almost finished until I made "snip" in the wrong place and have to start all over again. I promise, Jeri, it is in the works!!

This is Michelle's shoe block. I had the paper piecing done before I left on vacation, but knew it needed something else, so this is what I came up with. I love, love, love all the shoes she has gotten so far, so I really hope this will play well with the others.

Next, is Libby's. She wanted "ferns and violets" and this is what I came up with. I didn't see anyone post any of the blocks they made for her, so I just kinda went with my gut and this is my block. Libby, I hope this is what you had in mind.

My apologies for being late with your blocks.
