Q.What is this strange papery nest in my dill?

I successfully identified swallowtail chrysalises in my dill, but I have something else strange. There are a few fairly circular papery blobs hanging from the dill stalks. A grasshopper stood guard near one for a really long time. They’re light brown in color and one has a black bead-like thing attached. Are they some kind of nests?

I have not found any thing that matches your description.

It is likely the casing from a moth or butterfly.
