Embroidering Garden Tapestry #2

I am still so sick and very weak with my cold, but embroidery is just the activity for me right now. I stamped and painted all three of the garden tapestry hangings, and now I am doing embroidery on #2.

Here is an embroidered (back stitch) cobweb for the spider.

The stems are in stem stitch or chain stitch, the leaves are mostly buttonhole stitch.
