birds in a nest

Gayle has received her page so I can finally show it on this blog. I used a Dover stencil as my pattern. Embroidered chicks and backside of nest on hand dyed cotton. Made the front of the nest stumpwork style using knitting thread and Icelandic moss. Put some little feathers inside the nest. Twigs are couched down knitting thread. Flowers are silk flowers on which I embroidered the hearts. Flowers are silk, colored with Neocolor II, then the colors were mixed with some water. Leaves shapes were cut then the edges burned in a candle flame, embroidered the central spine to attach them.


  1. Cobi!!! THis is a phenomenol piece fo embroidery and creative wonder!!! Beautiful!!!!!

  2. Simply gorgeous! Your composition is lovely and I'm absolutely sure that Gayle flipped over it!

  3. What a delightful page. I do love the little birds in their nest.
