As I have gotten closer to finishing several stories I found I needed to stop and make the small bugs and flies called for in several stories. There are no patterns for these but I have been doing so many different ones with the crocheting I figured I could make up patterns and come up with something that would pass. Here is what I got .
This is the giant dragon fly for the story of the Swagman. Most of the others come from Froggy goes a Courting.
First to come to the wedding supper was a flying moth who laid out the table cloth. Here is the moth.
This is the table cloth. Shirley gave me a dozen or more of these and I knew as soon as I saw them that I had my table cloth.
The wedding supper was a fried mosquito and black eyed pea. This is as close as I could come to a fried mosquito.
This is the black eyed pea, I think I got that one good. Next to come was a Juney bug who brought the water jug.
I call this my Juney bug but it ism’t too close to a June bug. I am now working on the bumble bee who dances with the broken back flea.
Here is my flea. As you see I was getting tired and my imagination had pretty much run out.
This is the tick who ate so much she got sick. You can see why my imagination failed me. After a while they all look alike. I still have to make the wedding cake, the big black snake that ate the wedding cake, Mrs Cow who tried to dance but didn’t know how and the white dove that swallowed up Froggy. And of course I need the little piece of corn bread that was left on the shelf. Now I am back to working on Dyhana’s sweater as that is much more relaxing. Have a great day.
I forgot to press publish so I got the bumble bee finished and here he comes. Good night
