I've copied it and am going to make it. I love ladybugs and there are hundreds that find their way into my house every fall and overwinter somewhere in here. I'm making an afghan with roses and daisies on it so I think I will try and use the ladybug on it somehow too. I know I'm going to make a plant poke.
