A Ladybug For Your Viewing Pleasure

Design - Little Bugs - Ladybug
Designer - Knotted Tree
Fabric - 32 count raw linen
Fibers - DMC & GAST
Started - 24 March 2009
Completed - 26 March 2009

I mentioned in an earlier post that I'd stitched several of the Knotted Tree's insect patterns.  This ladybug is another in here series.  I particularly like the effect of the GAST thread on the border.

This morning the light is diffused and a bit golden.  It is cool and feels more like mid-September than early August.
The California Quail family was out and about this morning.


My sister's volunteer sunflower has come into its own.


The hummingbirds and I are enjoying the blossoms on the Iochroma
and the Phygelius.

Love your ladybug. I wish it were cool here. The humidity has been really bad.
