Rainbow Spiderweb

My latest embroidery piece was inspired by the endpapers of Charlotte's Web, which was illustrated by Garth Williams.  I've been in love with his spiderweb for as long as I can remember. Recently I realized my favorite thing about Williams' spiderweb is how he captures the dew drops.  I attempted to capture these dew drops with a healthy smattering of french knots.

Garth Williams' spiderweb:

And my spiderweb:

I thoroughly enjoyed making this spiderweb. Though I discovered I couldn't ever get into the mindset of a spider (always gave me the willy nillies), it was a fun piece to make.
