1. Shot to the Moon, 2. Too Close for Comfort, 3. looking for the perfect hexagon, 4. surreal atmosphere

This week's mosaic was very difficult as I was inspired by the wasp nest at our front door, I wanted this theme but without frighting anyone away from our blog :)

I decided to focus on the wonderful hexagon structures they make instead of the creatures themself, I think I did the right thing...

More mosaics can be admired at ArtMind's blog and you can join the fun!

Here is the picture of the nest I was mentioning, I think they made it in just a few days as I would have noticed it before. To avoid an even bigger nest I bought some poison and had to kill them, as it would have been impossible to enter our home in some more days (the nest was right above our frontdoor). I was suprised to see that there were about 30 of them, who knows what would it have become of it if we had noticed it much later...


I couldn't resist to show our challenge entry of the Wasp challenge we had a while back, as they are so matching the theme of today...

  8. Oh super mosaic and theme, Star!
    Hexagons remind me of a hexagon blanket I desperately want to crochet but first I'll have to finish my Babette blanket. *sigh*

  11. Uh, wasps are helpful folks actually, but they could be so annoying and stupid. I've accidentally killed one. She was looking for a place for nesting - in our built-in fly screen :(
