Insect Queen Crown

So I'm brainstorming designs for an insect queen character. Of course, she needs a crown worthy of her status. Recommendations? Or beads for crown?

So, I'm thinking of entering the FR & YWU competition this time. Insects! Visions of dragonfly wing ruffs with a supportase of ants and bumblebee ribbon corset to start.

This week has been interesting. My boss announced his retirement at the end of June.

My brother texted me with the news that his doctor sent him to the ER with low oxygen levels. Probably pneumonia, but the X-rays were clear, he expects to be released home today with meds. Low O2 levels, but high hemoglobin levels. He's on antibiotics and breathing treatments, but they don't know what's wrong.

A touch nervous here, he had bilateral pneumonia several years ago that landed him in medical induced coma for 3 months.

My mom has streaking in her left eye. She went to the opthamologist Thursday and fortunately it is treatable.

The streaks are blood clots in her retina. So, she had a shot of avastin into the eye. Squick moment.

Her follow up is in two weeks. Now, I just have to get her to set up her annual physical.

Hmm, will be tricky. 1-1/4 and ~1 yd pieces, but 58" wide. Thinking cross grain to take advantage of the lovely selvage edge.
