Elderberries and Ladybugs

These days my art making is best done while Ansel is visiting his grandparents, or swimming at the Y with Daddy. A few weeks ago I had a good chunk of time to myself and I sewed some berries.
My design and photo files are filled with images of berries. Here are a few snapshots that inspired my recent pieces:

Elderberries, Mole Hill, Vancouver

Bye for now,

P.S. Did you notice that "Elderberries and Ladybugs" also has ladybug eggs and a larva?
P.P.S. Why do some people say ladybug and some say ladybird?

Popped over thanks to Monika. Your work is stunning! I can't imagine working that small with my machine...I'd have to do it by hand. I am in awe of your skill!

In England we say ladybird, but I have no idea why...
Your work is beautiful, just found you via flickr, and so glad I did too!
