This block belongs to Simona in Italy. I did the silk ribbon spray using some 7mm ribbon that I dyed myself for the roses. The dark flowers are French knots done in burgundy variegated 7mm from Bucilla that perfectly match the colors in the darkest print on the block. I hope this is clear enough when you click on the photo that you can see the tiny spider and her fantasmagorical web. Wonder where she learned to spin a web like that?
And speaking of spiders, do you remember the big orange-ish hump-backed orb weaver that we had living in our front flower bed last summer?
Well, there's a baby one, perhaps her daughter, living on one of my tomato plants out back. She's a perfect little replica of the large spider, same color, same bumps on her back, but the size of a pinhead, and she weaves a perfect little orb. Where the big spider's web was 10" across, the baby's is about 2", but just as beautifully woven. I wish I could take a picture, but I think she's just too small. If she hangs around long enough and grows, I'll try to take a picture.
