A New Nest In The Works ...

Hello my dear friends,

I have been playing with the thought of designing a new nest since a little while. The design is now almost done and I am hoping that I will be able to actually start working on it properly soon. It will be made just like my other nests from a lambswool sweater that came that came all the way from Scotland.

I have always made my own themes for my nests but this time it will be a little different.

Both of my daughters love the classic Disney movies and my older daughter especially. Movies like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. My daughter Ashleigh thought it would be neat to create a nest with a Disney theme in mind but to do it my way. So I thought of all of the classic Disney movies and I have now chosen the one that I think I am happy with. Right now I am in the process of figuring out how I am going to do this and I think, I am slowing heading down the right path.

I have already picked the the yarn/wool that I am planning on using in the nest and I couldn't resist to start to work on it just for a tiny bit. I am impatient when it comes to doing a new creation and it is hard for me not to work on it right away work but to wait until I have the proper time to do so.

It is going to be a little while though before the nest will be done.
 There are going to be so several bits and  pieces that I need to try out and see it it is the right thing for this little nest or not. I also have one order to finish that I am already behind with and a few things in our house that need to be done first but in between everything, I am going to work on it a little here and a little there. I am just hoping that I can make the picture in my mind become reality again, so fingers crossed. Once my newest little nest is done, I will of course share it with all of you here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
