Chuggypig- I used satin stitch first and stem stitch mainly but then layered straight stitches in other colors over the top to get effect I wanted. The legs are long straight stitches and antenna are back stitch done with very small stitches.

La Chapa- I love creepy crawlies too  Smiley

Thanks everyone again for being so sweet!

Like my stuff? Why don't you come visit sometime?

Fabulous!  The texture turned out really great with the layered stitches.  And I love the colours.

I thought this was somebody's entomology project at first. Complete WTF moment here.

That is beautiful! And so life like, I could imagine it driving my cat nuts if it hung on my wall. The idea to fill it out than add the detail was brilliant! It seems to make it flow together like a real ones colors would.
