This block will always hold a special place in my heart because it includes that little owl. It was the first pixel graph that I made, and I just love it! Want to see it done in C2C? Click here to see the big floor pillow I made for my daughter. The other unique thing about this block was my encounter with the first "difficult" letter of the alphabet. Did you know there really aren't that many animals that start with the letter N? My husband was the one who thought up the narwhal. At first I didn’t even believe him that it was a real animal (especially when he described it as a whale with a horn)! But, low and behold, a quick Google search proved him right, and so narwhal it was! I hope you enjoy this set of graphs!
