I’m sorry that there has been such a long gap in posting. I have been marking, feeling sorry for myself with two summer colds and therefore sleeping, and travelling out of town to meetings. But, things are quietening down a bit now and so I would like to catch up.
One of the things that I have been doing is making ladybirds as prizes for the students who took part in the Go Green project that I did with my Grate Frend, Beatriz Acevedo. I also made some for the team and for some of the organisations that we worked with who wanted one. I have blogged about them before in a previous post and my hunch was right that the students would not want pretty pretty ladybirds and the goth ones were very popular. So here is a photo gallery of the ladybirds in all their recycled glory.

The two above are knitted ones that Beatriz and I were given at the Art of Management Conference in York last year. And finally, this is the one I kept for myself which has spots made of buttons from my mother-in-law’s button box:
Sorry the photos are so blurry, but they give an indication of what the beasts look like.
Next post will be more textiles and academic quilting-based.
