Thread Painted Lady Bugs & A Different Season

I am teaching a thread painting class in January.
Above is my sample wall hanging.  We will be thread painting lady bugs in class.
The applique is from a Sizzix die.

Harvest is done, but the work is never done.
Machinery has to be cleaned up and put away for the season, the bearings on the combine needs to be replaced, and paperwork needs to be caught-up for tax season to just name a few.
Just because there's no activity out in the fields doesn't mean the work is done.
It just means the work is different.
Dean spends a lot of time in his office planning for the next year.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Zelda sure did!

Happy Quilting!

Cute little ladybugs! They would make a lovely addition to various sewing projects. Wonder what new patterns Zelda is dreaming up?
