A “Cheeky” Request

I follow the blog Mummas Time To Create.  Its blogstress, Kat, made a “cheeky” request last week for happy, summery, log cabin blocks.  Specifically, she asked for Russian nesting dolls, birds, butterflies, teapots and no Civil War, overly pastel, or too much brown and dark color log cabin blocks measuring 15 inches or over.  Here’s what I came up with :oc pictures 920
And a close up of the bird block:

So, these are off to Australia on Tuesday, along with this stash of fabrics:

And these goodies I made for her two daughters:

Hope the package gets there soon!  I wonder how long it will take to make it to Australia?
