More embroidery

Now with predators. One teeny, tiny, rather cute embroidered predator that is.
This is Liz Almond's pattern, "Cobweb," worked on 18 count Aida cloth, with DMC colors 602, 3325, and 25 (because those were the closest I had already in the house to the colors she proposes). The pattern and many more are available free on her website.  The only stitches this one uses are backstitch and cross stitch (okay, the spider's eyes are French knots but you could fake it or learn to work two little French knots). The finished piece is just under 4" square.
