August Bee Block - Tally Ho!

David requested something involving 41 for his birthday block, so I decided to make a visual representation of the number.  I included groups of tallies of 5 to add up to 40, plus a candle in the middle to represent 41!

Hey Mister tally man, tally me bananas...

I had fun making the block, and it came out rather large (about 14 inches by 16 inches).  Happy birthday!


  1. Great idea, Nicole. I love the candle in the middle.

  2. Another great block! Nice idea

  3. Yeah...he did say size didnt matter...smiles...so you don't have to reduce...it looks great and oh soo fun...

  4. great block...love the result!
