I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Here's a fancy spider pincushion made for the wonderful cmarion3 in the Vintage Halloween Swap. Her body and head are made from wool felt and her legs are pipe cleaners wrapped with floral tape painted black. She has a crepe paper collar (how I love the crepe paper) and embroidered face.



She has a crocheted web shawl and sits on a weighted wool felt pumpkin which is, of course, where one should stick their pins!



I am thinking she is somewhere between 6-8" tall, but forgot to measure before she was sent off. Happy Hallowe'en!

And she is mine. She is queening it over a family of monsters waiting for a  find raising craft fair in November.  So she is having the time if her life! I do love her, so regal.

All praise Lolth; her eight-legged court is in session!

In anyone has the right to be mistress of a pincushion, it's a web-weaving spider.  Excellent, vintage-y looking arachnid lady and squash stool!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
