If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Bugged Out - Part 2



I decided to make a large area to place the insects and arachnids.  I then decided to  add a flower and leaves for interest.  The next stage is to stitch everything down and add antennae on the butterfly and grasshopper.
I found an embroidery design of a spider and its web to add to one corner.  I used soluble webbing so that the web is free-standing (used warm water to dissolve the webbing).  I straight stitched around the web.  This technique, I like because there's less puckering.
