Susan: Spiders Everywhere

Not too much more to go; one corner and some beading.

Spider Web: I thought putting that brighter shiny thread on the one branch might make it look like sunshine was hitting that part. What do you think?


Whole block (just for you, Judy!)

Lovely!

I like the idea of adding the highlights for sunlight. Depending on direction tho you might want to add it to both branches.

Wow, that spider is is pretty real looking! I like the shiny thread idea too.

It's a good thing that spider isn't going to land on the lady below..... ;-)
Nice work.

I really like the colour scheme on this block.
Love the spider on the silken thread. The 'highlights' on the branch is a great idea and makes it 'step-forward' towards the viewer.
Overall, a very pretty block, and unique too.

You must have been in our backyard for inspiration! We have spiderwebs everywhere which is a sure sign of fall. Oh, and thank you muchly for the whole block; you know I how love the big picture!

Nice thread choice for the shiny spider web. Like Judy, we are in spider season right now so your spider has plenty of twins in my garden.

I don't want to be the fly in the ointment, or against the crowd...and you all know I'm a total newbie...

With that being said, while I love the idea of a silver thread, how do you explain only one? Maybe weave it into the other threads, like trace the same pattern to include it with the other thread?

I tend to think of things in a story, so that's what I'm trying to do...but consider the source, and know I'm just nuts! ☺
