Freemotion machine embroidery and alcohol ink on canvas
5 x 5 inches
I've learned recently that spiders are the soul of old witches come to watch over us and that dreams about spiders are about protection and care.
In my dreams, I am terrified, but in my life I have come to appreciate these beautiful weavers.
Our fears are our way of protecting ourselves. It can be scary to be caught in the web of our fear but also oddly comforting at the same time.
This small, but intricate textile piece is a beautiful and soft reminder that accepting our fears is the first step to self care.
