I had so much fun with the colors, I might even make another one soon!
I'm not a bit squeemish about spiders. I think they do wonderful things for our gardens. I also love the song, Itsy-Bitsy Spider (or Eensy-Weensy Spider for my British friends). It is one of the first songs my children learned. I loved watching their tiny fingers "climbing up the water spout". (Just what is a water spout, anyway? I always picture a drain "pipe" coming down from the gutter.)
Children are fascinated with spiders. We are the ones who make children afraid of them. As a teacher, I tried to teach them to just leave them alone to do their work - don't touch, but admire. What artists they are! It's fun to watch them.
Your child or grandchild wouldn't have any problem with snuggling up in an Itsy-Bitsy Spider quilt. What a great snuggly for a rainy day!
Now scorpions are a different matter. I don't think I'll be putting them on a quilt any time soon! Here in South Texas, we do have them around. I know they serve their purpose, but they are just creepy to me. Then again, I've been stung by one and it wasn't fun! I don't know of any children's songs about them either! Maybe I can write one:
Creepy, creepy scorpion
underneath a stone.
Stung the weary gardenerand oh, how she did moan!
Well, I don't think it will catch on! Maybe I should just stick to quilting!!!
