Ladybug, Ladybug...fly away home....



Honestly, if you know me, one of my pet peeves is when people are late.  Seriously.  I hate it, which is why I'm always on time, and usually early.  Well not today.  For some unknown reason, I had on my calendar that my day for the hop was April 11th.  Well since the hop is totally over by then, I have no clue where that came from. Anyway, at least I already had the flag made.  So sorry!!

I'd like to thank Madame Samm and Thearica for hosting this blog hop.  I've so enjoyed seeing what all of these creative ladies have come up with. I was the lucky recipient of one of the adorable flag holders, and being that I love anything ladybug, I was tickled to death to receive this one.  Way too cute for words!  If you don't have one, you should check out the adorable flags that Flag Outlet has available. Thank you Flag Outlet for making this day possible.  :)

Here is my contribution to this hop.


 This is the back of the flag:

Carolyn, I can soooo relate to your feelings about being late! Like you, I was done early had my post and piece finished and on the blog...all I had to do was hit publish. I went out of town and when I tried to sign in to hit my publish button, I had no internet access! The story goes on and I finally got it up, but thanks to Madam Samm, it will never happen again, I hope :)
So, on to you! Your flag is adorable!! I love ladybugs as well. Something about black and red and circles that can't be beat! Also, your embroidery is wonderful!

Carolyn I'm totally in love with this flag! Many years ago we lived in a town (and worked in the public schools) where the Redbug was the sports mascot. Of course it looked like a ladybug. :) Two of my children graduated from high school there so we had/have many things redbug. They would have loved to have this in their front yard! blessings, marlene

ShirleyC said...

Your ladybugs are so cute! I love ladybugs on anything!
I'm so glad I wasn't the only one late. :)

LJ said...

How cute! The ladybug fabric on the back is so cute but the front speaks 'ladybug', too. What a great way to greet your visitors. Sweet!

Corrie said...

Super cute little ladybug! Love the backing fabric too.

Lady bugs are good luck so it'll be great to hang a flag with one on it. And on a lady bug hanger--too cool.

Soma Acharya said...

That is just the most adorable lady bug flag! I love it so much :)

Suze said...

This is wonderful! The fabric, the flag pole, the flag - it's a complete package. And the ladybug is so cheery. It is very welcoming. I know we are all ready to welcome spring. She is the epitome of the welcoming committee. Job well done! Thanks for participating and making me smile, smile, smile.

Leanne Parsons said...
