Will you step into my parlour?

This week the word on TAKE A WORD is INSECTS

For my entry I worked on a piece of canvas and machine stitched a spiders web.........


......I made a spider from a squashed night light candle holder and three wire hair pins......only had 3 so that's what I used.......the fly was stitched onto a seperate scrap of canvas ........they both have faces cut from The Octopode Factory figures....

 Ok, so I know that TECHNICALLY spiders aren't insects but then TECHNICALLY this isn't a spider as it's only got 6 legs and spiders have 8......so I am hoping to be forgiven my artistic license!

On looking up the quote I used I found that what I had always thought was "welcome to my parlour" said the spider etc, is in fact "will you walk into my parlour?" ....the stuff you discover!

Great stitchery. When I first saw the spider I thought she looked like an octopode, and sure enough she was! Innovative and creative. Well done!
