Charley loved ladybugs because they are harmless, beneficial for crops, and graphically appealing. Here he has fun with the sampler, a kind of embroidery format that girls and women once created to showcase their skills in needleworking. Charley both accommodates the sampler format and hints at the profuse variation in the appearance of ladybugs.
