    I think I have cabin fever (not for the feint hearted)

    I couldn't resist playing with the trimmings from my batik quilt and when I was finished, I thought it looked as though I was looking through compound eyes or insect eyes, so that what I went with.
    A little crazy, a little macabre ( my husband loves the glint in the frog's eye) but a lot of fun just playing. Spring is only 32 days (and my birthday!!)

    That is beautiful!! The longer one looks at it, the more one sees.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
