I have some batiks i hope to incorporate as the dark hexies and I will continue with the spot through out. I have not been this adventurous with fabric before it is a different path for me.
I have decided to do a round of the anjou papillon around the outside as well. but then again it is a work in progress and I guess it will grow and find it's place as I go.
