Have had some time off due to a health scare - but all OK now...so back to sewing etc.

POTC # 35 complet6ed 14.10.09. The central 8 hexagons forming the cross are from the Nuance collection The 8 edge Hexagons are from fabric by Kaufman ..La Scala Paisley Stripe Jewel. The orange fabric, another of my favorite batiks.
I couldnt resist showing this photo of Froddo2. In April we got 10 tadpoles to go in our new Frog Pond. Frodd1 got taken by a Mudlark and three other frogs appeared dead in the Pond. Froddo2 is our one survivor. We hope to make another pond and get more tadpoles soon, then Froddo2 will have some complay. Andrea does tell me there are still more tadpoles in the pond - but I have not seen them.
This is a photo of my design board today...as you can see I have a lot more to sew and plenty to keep my busy.
In the top left corner some some of my .75 hexagons ( I took down a lot as I ran out of room to plan my POTC blocks) for my Almost Insane quilt, which has been put on hold because of my addiction to the POTC blocks...an the top left side are some if my Insanity haxagons. Inklingo seems to have taken me over! So much to do, and far too many UFO's.
There is a really neglected spinning wheel in the lower left hand corner.
Yesterday I completed some pin-cushions I have made wiith an Inklingo pattern from Linda Franz...I have all our neighbours collecting bottle tops for me. This has been a bit like comic relief between POTC blocks. The circles are made from the Inklingo 0.5 hexagon collection.
These re the last 5 POTC blocks I have made so far....from end of September untill today. I have been busy at my desgin board getting the next few blocks ready. Have also been busy printing on my background fabric and getting some ready to sew, Andrea has been sewing some 'threes' for me.
