Ladybirds & a cross stitch update

Tuesday, April 12, 2016



Happy Tuesday! 🐞

So, spring is sort of here now. The weather's not perfect but we had a pretty decent weekend - it was warm enough for me not to wear a coat so that's a good sign.

I think one of the things that gets me the most excited about this time of year is the ladybirds (which I understand sounds kinda lame). I love them so much. I saw this one as I was walking up the driveway and immediately stopped to take a photo. I can spot their little red bodies a mile away, I think I have a ladybird radar. When I was little I used to collect ladybirds and put them in a little tupperware box. They'd escape overnight, but then I'd just go out and collect more the next day. I was a weird little ladybird hoarder, but they're so cute!

My cross stitching is going well. I posted my progress on Twitter last night and I'm really proud, but once again I've done the outline first instead of the cross stitching so the end product might look a bit weird and messy but I'm OK with that.


P.S. Unfortunately no 'inspiring things' post this week! There will be on up next Monday (the 18th).
