" Doily Nest" assemblage

Hoop size - 5 " dia .

i`m always trying to come up with ideas
of how to include a nest in my work .
Here is my latest idea .
Using one of my many crochet doilies ,
that fitted inside the hoop , made
a nest from sisal and sewed it onto a
real twig and then onto the doily . Added a
couple of feathers - the 2 side shot photos are clickable

The "egg " was a long almond shaped felted bead
that i squashed down a little .

An alternative background -
when it`s hung - whatever wallpaper
you have up will show through .

I have seen fabrics displayed this way too
using different sized hoops -
and you could even do the same with your
doily collection .

Hi Carolyn!!! What a neat idea! The bead made a perfect egg, too. Thanks for sharing.

I love how all the textures fit together...the blend of colour and texture makes this feel like nature has come indoors!

Hello dear Carolyn:-)

Another beautiful ornament you've made, it's gorgeous!! I so love it when you make things using those little nests. I still haven't received your parcel so I'm hoping it didn't get lost somewhere along the way! Sigh. I'll keep checking my mailbox, though:-)

I do hope you liked the little faerie costume I dressed you up in at my birthday party?? hehe xoxo
