I stitched this little guy up several months ago for a personal swap I did with Missing Willow.  My stepmother always told me that spiders protect the home, and it seemed like a sentiment that MW would appreciate.



I lightly drew out the radiating lines of the web in pencil on my white muslin, then stitched them with stem stitch, and free handed the rest of the web, as well as the little spider, who is part back stitch and part satin stitch.

I'm usually scared of spiders but this one looks friendly! It's a lovely little piece, Ais.
