Red, White & Pink
This block is gluten-free.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley & rye and a host of lesser known grains. It is a virtual poison to those suffering from Celiac Disease and other "wheat" intolerances. If you or someone you know is Celiac - like my daughter - you will know that despite the name, "buckwheat" is a grain which happily is absent of gluten.
And buckwheat is not only gluten-free, it's delicious ... especially in the pancakes Daddy often makes for us on Saturday mornings.
So I love this block.
Because it's gluten-free.
I wanted to make this block look like a twisted ribbon with two prints in the same color but different textures for both sides of the ribbon.
I love it.
Although I can't TELL you how many times I've tried to pick off this little strand of "thread" ...
which is actually part of the print! It's driving me crazy. I think I might find a red permanent marker to color it out.
In fact ...
Crap. Can't find one.
But I will!
'Cause I'm a little neurotic quirky that way.
