Lauren's block

Lauren, I have to apologize to you.  I have had your block made for a while but I haven't been able to get to the post office to mail it!  Canada Post has such rigid guidelines for size and weight now that I make sure I take everything in to check that I have the right postage - and I often don't.  The little parcel is all packaged up ready to go and I will get it in the mail on Tuesday.

I was going to wait until I got it in the mail to post a picture for you but I laughed when I looked at the block Beebee made for you - hers and mine are a lot alike!  And I decided I'd better post a picture for you now.


Mars and the Milky Way.... 

Beebee, you and I need to consult on how you did your circle.  I ended up hand sewing mine because it was giving me lots of grief!

Lauren in the meantime perhaps your boys would be entertained by this pictoral about space.  It is in Microsoft Power Point.  I hope you can open it and play it as it is quite spectacular.

When I copy this link into the internet file line, and then push enter, it opens the power point file on my computer.  It doesn't open as an internet page, but as an actual file on my computer.  I hope you can open it and play it as it is quite spectacular.
