Nests, Nests and More Nests

My sweet friend, Vicki, received these the other day.
All will complement her knitted nests.
First up, these are for the Snowbird Nests.
These little tags will be tied onto the designer nests.
Silver-y snowflakes were embossed onto 35 one-inch tags.
Three packs (120 sheets) of tissue paper were stamped.
That was a mere 1,104 stamped boughs
with 8,832 colored berries.

Next step was to trace and then die cut 70 birds and 70 wings.
Then to die cut 35 flowers out of 175 coffee filters to make into flowers.
And then marry them all together.
Beautiful silver-y fibers will be tied around the tissue papers holding the nests.

Next up are for the Woodlands Nests.
Vicki knits these every year.
I stamped 35 nests onto these little tags.
And then colored 385 leaves and 240 eggs.
Of course, tissue papers to lovingly wrap around the nests.

Ohhhhhhhhhh, these birds are just beautiful!
I understand that these little birdies have become collectables
for many of the people that have ordered Vicki's nests.
Enjoy, ladies!

 Last, but not least, these are for the Shabby Chic Nests.
Nests were stamped then 358 leaves were colored
as well as 140 eggs that were colored.
Again, three packs (120 sheets) of tissue papers.
That's 2,160 stamped nests
and 6,480 colored eggs.

The nests will be knitted in whites and soft creams
with a hint of gold.

If you haven't visited Vicki's blog I highly recommend you do so today.
You won't be sorry - I promise.


  1. I love these --- and I have my own little set - I am stamping tissue for Christmas myself ---- seems i don't do "random" patterning well ---

    have a lovely day.

  2. Oh, my goodness, that's a whole bunch of work. Lovely, lovely.

  3. You've been very busy! These are all gorgeous!
