Along came a spider

Yes, I put in the spider web with a single strand of DMC fil for the inner web and three strands for the bottom edge. The spider is split stitched, then padded satin to smooth him out and a french knot for his head with tiny little legs. The calyx on the honeysuckle were split stitched around the outside. Then, a padding stitch is added and finally satin stitches for the top layer.

I love the spider, too. S/he is perfect!

My flowers always have little insects here and there on them. The inclusion of the spider and web makes this more realistic and fun to me.

Little "beings" add so much to a piece. Love the spider. Very inspiring!
