Erin's block - version 4



Lovely Erin was my January Swap partner   She's the very talented person who sent me the amazing embroidered owl block in Jan.
Erin requested either an Abstraction block or a Birds in the Air block.  First I made a Birds in the Air block but somehow I ended up with an eleven and a half inch square- don't know how I managed this - so into the scrap bag it went.
So I made Abstraction but just before I popped it in the envelope I thought I'd give it one more quick press and my iron decided to leave dirty marks on it - so into the bin it went.


Next I made Abstraction again, all went well and I popped it in the post about  6 weeks ago- but it did not arrive, so it's lost in the postal system somewhere.


So today I made Birds in the Air again, this time carefully following the instructions.  Fingers crossed this one will actually make it to Erin's house.

So glad you kept the communication open and let Erin know what was happening, the other block will probably turn up after it has a holiday around the country. Great blocks too xx
