Did you catch ladybugs when you were a kid? How about love bugs?
Ladybugs are the ones with red wings and black spots -- as in Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home..... and love bugs are the ones that are *stuck together* if you know what I mean.
I remember catching love bugs but I was one of the nice kids who didn't pull them apart... yeah sure, you say -- but it's true! I had no idea why they were stuck together, just that they were! I wonder if I ever asked my mom why they were like that -- and even better, I wonder what she answered if I did!
Anyway, with Valentine's Day right around the corner, and those love bugs madly dashing about with their girlfriends or handsome beaus, I have made a little crochet buggie to remember the day.
She's actually a Ladybug, but because of her special heart spots, she's also a Love Bug!
Here she is waiting for her special love beau to come along...
She thinks the birdhouses on the chair will attract him : )
She has rather buggy (get it?) eyes,
to keep the little ones safe when they play
She even has her own cute bag to sleep in!
Her own ladybug cousins and some butterfly friends are on the bag,
and it says "Girl Bugs" all over it!
Miss Lady Love Bug likes it very much!
