Ladybug finally made it across the Atlantic Ocean



In the midst of all the excitement of Christmas, I don't think I showed you all the quilt I made for the fun and funny Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey . You may remember that the theme was "Out of the Box"-- ie, not square. So I made this silly ladybug. I meant for her to be small, but she ended up growing to close to 12 inches, which is pretty massive.

Even so, she must have stowed away on a ship and then crawled from the coast to Katy's house, because it took her over two months to arrive. Ah well, thats what happens when Canada Post has your town listed as "All Other Places".

that was a slow delivery wasn't it - I have heard a lot of Canadians complain about the postal service :)
