Slowly But Surely, Bit By Bit ...

Hello my dear friends,

slowly but surely and bit by bit my newest nest creation is coming together.

I have been busy working on it in these past two weeks. I had felted the base nest but I wasn't too happy when it was done at first. Something just wasn't right or rather something was missing. That something turned out to be a gray and very soft eyelash yarn. Once that was added to the nest, I was very content with the look of it.

I have been crocheting, gluing, sewing, more felting, cutting and bending wire and also dying and painting too. I am working with wood, paint, seam binding, wire, yarn and glass beads. (I think that was all?!) I have designed several neat elements and bits and pieces for my newest nest which has a Disney theme with my take on it.

Today I though I would share a few sneak peek photos of some of the bits and pieces I am working with, with all of you but I am not going to give too much away just yet. You will have to wait a little longer to see my finished creation and I hope you don't mind. In my eyes it will be worth the wait because it is already looking so lovely and neat and it's not even finished.

And here are the little sneak peeks for you ...

  I know, that I am not sharing very much because I don't want give too many clues away right now but looking at these bits and pieces, do any of you maybe have a thought on which Disney movie I might have chosen to do? Let me know in a comment and we will see who is right. I am hoping to have my nest done in a few more days and then I will finally be able to share it with all of you.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today here at Todolwen, it is always so nice when you do. Don't forget to come back sometime soon again to see what I have been up too.

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

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Ah - perhaps "I'm late, I'm late" might have something to do with your theme? We will wait and see....

  2. Oh,it looks wonderful.
    My guess would be Alice in Wonderland.

  3. Can't wait!
    Hab mich schon gewundert was mit dir los war, hatte schon gedacht das du evtl. krank warst. Good luck with the project...looks very promising. I'm working on a Lace book right now, it's very time consuming as well!

  4. My first thought was also Alice in Wonderland, but the eggs have thrown me off! Can't wait to see the finished nest!!!!!

  5. I'm thinking either Alice in Wonderland or Cinderella. The eggs are throwing me off, too. They could be included just because it is a nest!

  6. Oh I am excited to see it in perfection!
    Hugs Ines♥

  7. I believe it's Alice in Wonderland too because of the "watch" die cut. Can't wait to see the final results of your creations :)

  8. Anticipation. It's killing me.
