Spider Beware with Bets Maas
Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June 2013
A spider is totally unaware of its pending predicament while a cheeky blue jay is waiting for the right moment to strike. It is almost incomprehensible that this whole drama is playing out in this picturesque background surrounded by beautiful colourful flowering quince blossoms, buds and foliage.
The background embroidery is done using silk thread on a silk background while the beautiful colourful blue jay itself is embroidered using a combination of silk and DMC embroidery cotton. The blossoms, buds and foliage as well as the wing of the blue jay are embroidered according to the Barbola technique which Bets has made the signature of all her three dimensional embroidery and gives it a lifelike appearance.
Skill level: Some embroidery experience required.
Kit cost: $89.25
