Finishes..........

Have finished up two of three belated Christmas gifts, and the second of the bible / Alphabet blocks that I said I'd make.  

The skirts are for my niece.   And are from a pinstriped denim and a herringbone tweeded suiting.    Here's hoping that they fit!





The biblical block was made to represent the letter "R".  And Moses crossing the Red Sea is  what was wanted.   I made lined flaps that can be opened to allow Moses to walk across the dry land.  

I added shiny tulle att eh bottom of the water with itty-bitty shells in it to give added texture to the block.     And the stash had the sand, water and sky prints that I used for the block.  Moses is made from two colors of felt and attached to a piece of ribbon so that kids can play with him.

Now that's a cute block! Love the three-dimensional aspect. The skirts are adorable. Wish I were that skinny again!
