Flower Beetles

I discovered I had another yard or so of warp left on my sixteen harness ashford so I am weaving a collection of sixteen beetles from the Cetoniinae subfamily; the flower beetles.

Four beetles done with a dozen to go. The colors are bright and cheerful and the weaving has been quite pleasant. My only problem has been when I forgot my only rule of weaving with fine threads - avoid clothes with buttons.

I have two weaving goals this month, substantial progress on the flower beetles & my giraffe tapestry. So far, so good on the first. Today I focus on the latter.
