Ladybug Pincushion

My friend, Linda likes ladybugs, so for part of her birthday present I made her a ladybug pincushion.

Last fall, I found a black wool jacket and a red wool blazer at Goodwill.  I took them apart and washed the pieces in very hot water in the washing machine.  I ended up with felted wool at a reasonable price :)

I used hand stitching and trims in the stash to complete the bug.

Yesterday, I saw a huge butterfly in my flowers.  I tried to catch a photo of him but his wings were moving way too fast.  I realized I should have set the camera at the sports or action setting.  When he came back, I went out and was able to get some nice shots of him.
