Spider Silk Textile

My friend Margaret sent this link , & I thought others might be interested. My arachnophobia makes me shiver to think of how this was done, but the end product is a beautiful textile!

Exquisite! I cannot imagine how many spider webs this would take.

Too Cool! Speaking of phobias, I've started tanning in preparation for our trip to Gr. Caymans. We leave the 25 of this month. Ever been in a tanning bed?!!
