Nest of Dreams

As soon as I saw these on 2 Bags Full I knew I had to have one.  Vicki creates these beautiful nests by hand with many different types of fibers and yarn.  If you look closely you can even see scraps of paper woven in, much the same as a real bird's nest.  It took a while to get it, she had many orders ahead of me but it just came and it was worth the wait.  This is a gift to myself for a brand new year - a nest of dreams.  It's so beautiful.  Thank you Vicki.                        Diane

Diane- a little birdie told me that you had posted a photo of my nest! Oh how lovely it looks here on your beautiful blog! I am so glad that your nest is in a loving home- thank you for your great patience in allowing me to create this for you. A little breathe of spring here in the middle of this cold dark winter--

Oh wow Diane! How wonderful that you received one of Vicki's nests. They truly are beautiful creations, aren't they ???!!!

I don't know where the hours in the day go - how in the heck did I miss 4 of your posts? Yikes! It's already past my bedtime now. So glad I was able to stop by today. Hope you are having a good one. Best wishes, Tammy

What a lovely gift to yourself - especially at this time of year when all we want to do is snuggle in and nest!
