Anyone interested in an insect/bug swap?  Since it is spring, I figured this would be perfect. Ladybugs, butterflies, dragonflies, ants, beetles, june bugs, and any other fun lil insects Smiley  Anyone??

I would so be in!  I've even provided a link to free stuffed insect sewn patterns.  There is also a bumble bee, and a spider (but remember, spiders do not count as insects, they are their own classification/arachnids.  Because they have 8 legs and 2 distinct body parts.

Come on people!  Let's get this one going!  I would LOVE to join this swap!  So many ideas buzzing around in my head!  I've even provided links to free patterns for both sewers and crocheters.

I would be definitely interested!  Small to Medium swaps are always better for me. I like to keep it simple Smiley

I don't do hoops (yet) but I'm thinking some buggy hoopla would make my year!!!
