Crocheted spider webs

Went to Highfield Hall in Falmouth, Cape Cod to see a fiber art show yesterday.  They had just closed to prepare for a wedding that afternoon so I'll have to go back to see the show. However, outdoors, they had two shows: one was 20 various fairy houses in the gardens and woods -- ho-hum. In a grand grove of big old trees was a exhibition of crocheted spider webs. They were a good idea and very attractively hung. I'm not a fan of crocheting and can't quite get beyond Victorian doilies and antimasscars.  Here are a couple of photos -- aren't the trees wonderful? During a past visit another fiber artist had knitted "sweaters" for the tree trunks in bright colors. Since I did not get into the main building I do not have material with the name of the crochet artist . I will get that when I go back later this week; she and her hours of work deserve reognition..
