The perfect bead!

What do you think?  Is this not the perfect bead for a beetle?  Now, if you want to see beetles, I almost made myself ill this afternoon looking through this array of beetledom! 
 From beetles to bees, much friendlier creatures.  To get my bee fluffy, I used the turkey knot for his body.

OMG! It looks as if it could just up and walk away! The one you did in bullion knots looks amazing too!

Hi, I'm over here from Hetty's blog. Your work is fabulous. I haven't done much crazy quilting, but am trying to learn how to get involved with it.
