That is lovely. Funnily enough I was reminiscing about the Talking Parcel, by Gerald Durrell this weekend. That features a golden spider called Dulcimer. This web could be one of hers

It's great to know as Charlotte said, that gold spiders really do exist [whether in actuality or Durrell's imagination doesn't matter, they or at least she - exists!] I like the way that the centre of the web is off the image, somewhere beyond the top left hand corner, so we can just imagine her there...

I have embroidered but I don't know well couching skill. I think this embroidery maybe is used in kimonos. The golden spider web is great.
And thank you for introducing gold Japanese couching thread,like tomoko is saying.

Hi Ruby,
Glint on gold spider web must be beautiful. Yellow and gold look bright and shiny.

Hello, Luby! This is a lovely art of work made out of the fascinating imagination. Yellow tulip brings forth hope and optimism. I wonder if the unseen spider has this view from somewhere on the web, if it can see like us humans.

Ruby, your art is captivating and takes a moment to absorb it all as the eyes shift from tulip to web and back again. Lovely design and creation!

Bises,
