Yesterday we decided to escape the city for a while and go up to the mountains. The trees are beginning to turn and the sky was that beautiful autumn blue, who could resist.
On the way up into the mountains I mentioned several times to my husband about the multitude of gnats. He replied that it had been raining for days before and the moisture had brought them out. HAH! When we got to our destination we noticed ladybugs landing on the car.
Not only landing on the car, everywhere. When we got out of the car we all got covered in ladybugs. The children were trying to brush them off. They were on my glasses, in my pockets, I even had to get them from under my shirt! Swarms of ladybugs were everywhere. I felt like I was in some horror movie, "Attack of The Ladybugs." They tried to fly in our ears, they tried to fly up our nostrils. We tried to walk, but after 20 minutes of fighting off the ladybugs we tried to brush them off and jump in the car. We were not quite successful and the car had many ladybugs in it! Going back down the moutain we were trapping and putting ladybugs out the windows. That was the wierdest experience I have had in a long time.
I did get some sewing related work done yesterday. I digitized a design for a lady and I cut out 7 bags, 6 tissue covers, and 6 key chains.
Sew Long for Now!
