Here...there...and everywhere!

I finished the Ladybug hat (or Ladybird, as we say in England!). I just wish I could get a good photo of it. First I tried it next to my silk plant in the dining room (I think this one turned out the best)

Then I tried it on my candle sconce but as you can see the background clashes a little!

Then I tried it on the lamp in the hall way (funny how the beads kinda look like hair!) :-) And then I tried it another million other places, not to mention Kristen's head - and they were all a little out of focus - so I'm sticking with these 3 pics for now, and may at a later time get a head shot again of Kristen modeling it.

It's kind of hard getting the antenna to stand up unless a head is in the hat! But it is still very cute. This one may be destined to fly far away from home, where I know a sweet little girl will just love it (not to mention her mommy) ;-)

Now that is just the cutest, little hat. I love that you called it a 'ladybird.' Did you have to put something in the antennae to make them stand up?
