Bugs and Flowers Swap!

Hooray!  I have just received word that this little swap parcel has reached it's destination.  It is now safely in the hands of the recipient.   It had to wing it's way to Turkey, I'm so glad it has arrived! Why? Cause I put a lot of work into it hahaha!

Lets have a look at the goodies. First up a little ladybird tape measure.  This is my own pattern and was a bit of an experiment (I'm very pleased with the results). Crocheted in black and red cotton.

The  wings kept moving, hence the pins. They stopped me using a  few bad words, whilst trying to make them sit. :0
I'm not a very patient person at the mooo! : p

Little ladybird with her spots i.e. buttons.  I decided on a two spot ladybird.  I believe she is native to the U.K.

Look she works!  She reassured me it wasn't sore when I pulled her antenna to reveal the tape measure.

Now for the Ladybird home!
