Mermaids a swimmin'

I have decided that I LOVE mermaids. This Heather Ross Mendocino fabric, is to die for, especially now that I have seen it in person. Nettie sent this fabric for us to make a improv block, so basically whatever we wanted to make. Easy. I whipped both of these out yesterday while my daughter took a much needed 3 1/2 hour nap. Nettie sent enough fabric so that I could make 2 blocks, she wanted the blocks to be 8" - 14".

I made a 10.5" simple block so that I could showcase the mermaids. Aren't they fab??

For Nettie - simple block


Then I tried a busy 14" block that would (hopefully) project movement. Those vines around the mermaid I thought gave the impression of seaweed.

For Nettie - busy block


My favorite part is to the left where the little girl is swimming in the top square into the bottom square, love it.

Really cute blocks, Darci. What a fun exchange.

I'm also jealous of your green grass. Although, I'm just happy I can finally see grass again. :)
