last week as I was getting my morning chores done ~ I looked outside my kitchen window and what do I see .... SNOW!! Yes, the beautiful white little fairies are making their first appearance this year. That makes it the perfect time to share a new creation of mine with you ... it is my Christmas nest.
I made the nest again from an lambswool sweater that came from Ireland ...
... and the wool I used is from all over Europe that I have had since some time but never really had a use for ... until now.
This is one of my favourite wools ~ it looks like it is glistening ever so slightly.
I wanted to use lighter red pip berries for this nest but I only had burgundy red berries on hand. Well ... at 6 am in the morning you some times get really good ideas ... like using your daughter's red nail polish to create the right colored pip berries you need!
Another good thing to do first thing in the morning is to take photos in the frost when the sun is rising and that is exactly what I did with this nest.
I hope you enjoy my new Christmas Nest.
As you can see, it was hard for me to decide on which photos to share with you and these are the ones that made it to the short list and I thought I was happy. Then ... the a little snow fell and I just had to get a few pictures in the nest in the snow.
And as you can see ...
... even Tugs is happy with the new nest.
If you look at my free tutorials on the right sidebar you will find the 'felted nest tutorial' and the 'kissed by the frost' tutorial just waiting for you to start and create!
And if you do and would like to, why not send me a photo so I can see what you have made.
And until the next time ... here at Todolwen ...
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends,
Have a peaceful and creative day,
