Ladybug Ladybug it’s almost spring

Well it’s now spring and wouldn’t you know it it’s snowing outside.  So I sat in front of a lump of black clay until it spoke to me.  And it cried out ladybug.  So that is what is now firing in the oven.  Eight cute little ladybug pendants.  Four in blue and four in red.  Yes there are blue ladybugs.  One species is commonly known as the Steelblue Ladybug introduced to New Zealand from Australia in 1899 to 1905.  There are over 300 different kinds of ladybugs in North America and they come in a variety of colours, red, orange, blue, yellow, white and pink.  So if these little fellows turn out after firing I may just have to make the whole range of colours.

These lumps of black clay will become ladybug pendants
