Hangings, Hexies & Clamshells

At Christmas time i was sent a parcel of fabrics with instuctions to create something that had hexagons & a critter. It took me ages to finally find something that fitted the criteria & what i liked. Above is the result. The fabrics in the log cabin & nine-patch are what i was sent to use. All the rest came from my stash. Only thing i bought was the hinges on the gate. Unfortunately in trying to get the whole wallhanging in you can't see the embroidered words. :(
My hexies for this week. I even have some nice plants to feature in this weeks photo's. :)
Baby sister sitting in a chilli bush,. The fabric i used is actually brown. I moved the hexie around to get a decent photo but it still caught glare. :(
If i remember correctly it's also clamshell day being the end of June. Here is what i've prepared so far. Still trying to decide what to create with them.
