maybe just a little 'whip' for me...

...oh boy, I just realized that i have not given my ladybug legs and a head...further more I still need to stitch around the hexie and the circle...slacking I know!  But since I have met Chooky and Susan, maybe they will go a little easier on me!  LOL

Oh and I have a few things backwards on my centre block but I thought I would leave them like that as I did stitch this on my trip and there are a few things backwards (to us anyways) in Australia...like driving on the 'other' side of the road...your half moon is on the bottom, ours is on its side...and if you have never noticed...your toilets swirl the other way too!  So that is how I have justified my 'backward' pieces!

ha ha!! I might give you a tick anyway.
I hadn't thought about the moon - I will need to keep an eye on our half moons now.

Birds have legs? Wow...where have I been? Ok and I need to put the zinger on too but just not sure what fabric I'm using yet so will add that on when I put the next border on!

Love the backwardness but really not noticeable because it all syncs! ;). You simply made it your own. Love the blues!
