Ladybug & jar topper


I crocheted Ladybug a new collar - she lost the one she had out in the yard somewhere. I searched for it but I can't find it. She doesn't look too happy because I woke her up to take this picture. :)


I also crocheted a jar topper for the Valentine's candy jar I'm taking to my co-workers. It's really nothing special but everyone sure loves the candy.
