And just for fun I reversed the image to the negative.
Every fall the spiders seem to come out of hiding and spin their webs everywhere. So that when you go hiking or biking or just walking in the yard you end up with a face full of clingy spider web. Maybe the spiders know that Halloween is right around the corner. Normally we see the beautiful black and yellow garden spiders with the zipper shape down the middle of their web, but we haven’t seen them this year. What the spiders do with their threads is extraordinary! And I couldn’t help but think of the things I’ve seen lately made by human fingers with needle and thread.
This gorgeous wool felt ring was made by Melinda. She gave me this one, and she was wearing one made out of blue wool with two buttons on it. She will have to take a picture of it. *hint, hint* Such a simple and beautiful way to make use of small scraps of wool felt, and a special button or two.
And a wee bit of cross stitch made by Claudia.
And these brilliantly embroidered tees by Molly. The tee shirt is my daily uniform, and I love the idea of embroidering something on them. You could do all sorts of things. Doesn’t it make the wheels in your brain start spinning! And these are all small and portable projects, which is just what I need since we have an overnight bike trip, and two camping weekends planned in the next few weeks.
