the good, the bad and "pseudo" backtack3

Bad news: I missed out on BT3 (see post)

Good news: Ivy from Pinned offered to swap with me regardless.

Bad news: It wasn't long after that and I was unable to do much for fear of freezing to death and never regaining the use of my brain.
(first trimester is weird that way for me)

Good news: I have been quite productive over the last couple of weeks.
(thankful my fears have not been realised)

Bad news: I have not been in contact with Ivy since before May.

Good news: I have finished my pseudo-backtack3 submission
I used my dragonfly pattern but enlarged it. Instead of being about 7cm in length on the body this guy is about 20cm. I think it is much more successful. 3 buttons on it's tail/stinger and 2 for eyes, makes the required 5 and an "I" has been cut into the bottom black wing.

Bad news: I'm not sure if I am still in Ivy's good books.(*smile*.......smiling sweetly for Ivy) I have been trying, in ernest, to contact her over the last few days

Good news: I apologise sincerely for my lack of communication
EDIT: More good news: All is well and we are back in contact

Bad news: Ivy may have thought the swap was well and truly called off and may not have made anything.
(Which would be understandable and fair)

EDIT: Good news: Swap is definately still ON!

Good news: I made two bugs and like them both, so would be fine about keeping them......if I had to. (I don't want there to be any pressure)

EDIT: More good news: I get to send Ivy the one I made for her. YAY!

More good news: This guy below is my favourite and I will definately be making more like him.

All's well that ends well!

Welcome back to blogging and congrats on the new development within. Thanks so much for your postcard in the swap, I can't remember if I thanked you before,so there it is again. It was one of my favs.
Harry will tell you that Dragonflys are my favourite insect! And that's not hard because I really don't like too many of them. Lady beetles come a close second.
