More silk ribbon embroidery and spiders

This is another patch of SRE for the Grand Motif Swap, a little spring lamby done in French knots. I was getting a little tired of the flora, so I tried some fauna.

Then we have the first block I've worked on in the Spiders and Webs RR from CQI. This block belongs to Gerry H. and I'm the first to get to work on it.

Close-up of my SRE rose vine and home of Miss Black, who is not a black widow because, as she says, she "has yet to find the right guy".
