Between some pretty interesting local bugs, fantastic National Geographic articles, an article in the New York Times and a visit to the natural history museum, I have started stitching bugs. These two aren’t really related visually, since I was approaching them with different methods. I think they are somewhat related thematically, though.


^Last night when I stopped working on this beetle it  was “at a good stopping point” but now, looking at it today, I think it might actually be finished. (Although my original sketch is different.)


^Unfortunately, I pulled the fabric a little too tight in a few places on this one. I am hoping to fix that somewhat when I stretch it.
