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:

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?
