Wall Hanging of Crazy Quilt Squares

Mannie has been putting finishing touches to a wall hanging of three crazy quilt squares. She has stitched in spiders and put cobwebs onto the hanging. And, at the bottom of the hanging sits Arachne -in Greek Mythology, a weaver who acquired such skill that she ventured to challenge Athena to a weaving contest. Enraged at the perfection of her rival's work, Athena tore Arachne's work to shreds and changed her into a spider.Cobwebs and spiders added.

Note the outline of large spiders embroidered into the green.
And Arachne rendered helpless by Athena. Mannie emboriedered the image and appliqued it to the bottom of the hanging.
