Now that my friend Laura has gotten her gifts, I can show you the necklace that I made for her: Ladybug May.
I have to say, that having friends who craft and who encourage and challenge you to always do your best are absolute treasure. (It also doesn't hurt that she always has good things to say about stuff I make for our exchanges.) A little encouragement is a balm for the soul. And a little challenge expands your horizons.
Laura is also the winner of the ladybug pincushion - as she was the first to comment on it. She has the original one, and her little boy wanted another one so very badly - so it goes to him.
