For the Bug Collectors

If an entire purse or pillow of beetles is a little much for you, check this out.  I took this photo in Melissa Shirley's booth at Columbus Market. 




The same beetles as on the purse, but each is individually framed in a shadow box just like a bug collector would.  For the sake of keeping your finisher sane, I would probably just stitch the bug body and then let the finisher add the legs and antennae. I thought this was a very cool idea.
