Cobweb embroidery started

I am beginning another embroidery on natural coloured linen, of a cobweb.

The guidelines are drawn with a Frixion pen. The lines will erase with heat, but in any case, will be covered by the embroidery.

After the embroidery part is finished, I want to add tiny crystal beads, to look like dewdrops.

Here is my inspiration image, from the internet:
