" 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
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 .
