I stitched this up a as thank you for my Halloween in June partner. She totally spoiled me so I had to send her a little something! I decided to put a doily behind it to look more like spider webs.

Pretty genius of you to mount your work on a doily...mind if I steal that idea one day? Beautiful stitching there, kittykill.

Thank you! The doily was added by accident.  Cheesy I didn't have any good fabric or a hoop that would fit and I am trying to use up everything I have before buying new stuff so...there ya go! I think I will try other pieces out with lace and crochet doilies.

I love this!   I love how the skeleton's arms play with the design of the lace.  You have one lucky swap partner!

Such a beautiful illustration of the saying.  I hope to do one like this myself one day.  I also love the way you used what you had on hand i.e. the doily, and that has made it even more impressive.
