My daughter went from making a Spot Sample from ideas we got from Mary Corbett's Needle N Thread to making pages for her nephew's book. Her favorite stitches are turkey work, button hole and couching. She also used a bit of lazy daisy, satin, padded satin, french knots and a few others.

A pocket of netting for the little guy to 'keep' his butterflies in. I made a pocket for ladybirds, bees and dragonflies too. He can take them out and his mommy can put them back in :)
The spider is a Crusader made of almost all backstitch, same for the web using DMC floss and gray rayon embroidery thread.
A three dimensional grasshopper idea from jane Nicholas Stumpwork Medieval Flora. On a budget so there are no fancy materials. It's worked on osnaburg with DMC floss and organza ribbon from one of my daughters wedding gift packages. Stitches are; applique, satin, buttonhole, padded satin then couched.
