Robin was so good about incorporating many threads in each piece and also making sure that these threads get used on multiple Creeps.
My favorite stitch is the Elliot Stitch. Done in two shades of lavender, it gives a feminine touch that belies the fierce look of this black widow.

Because this is a Tapestry Tent canvas, most of the work was done in basketweave, French knots and lots of beads.
My favorite part is the cuff background--it's a mini scallop shape from one of Brenda Hart's books. I brought home a skein of Vineyard Silk and Silk & Ivory to see which would work best for this vertical stitch on 18 count canvas. Surprisingly the Vineyard Silk fit the bill perfectly.
I've since been rewarding myself by stitching ornament after ornament, looking forward to special new canvases at market.
