Spring Surprise -- a (very) limited new Woodland Bling nest

Deep in the woods~~

in the quiet
          echos of

no one ever sees the

the silent makings
of nature's most intricate

~~ except
for the dragonfly~
(who quietly watches and is amazed)

Knitting is more than just a hobby for me-
it is a true passion.
The art of knitting calms 
my restless spirit
and fills my soul with
my knitted nests
are the result of this passion.

A lover of nature
and of "nests" of all kinds~
my knitted nest designs
allow me to creatively bring to life
my own interpretation 
of one of nature's most amazing creations.

"Woodland Bling" 
this beautiful nest 
is part of my Designer nest series.

~while each of my Designer nests
are limited in production,
this specialty nest is very limited~
as there are only 6 nests
in this series.

this nest was created 
to welcome the long awaited
(Honestly, I thought maybe it was not coming this year!)

 profits from my Designer Series nests
are always
donated to charity
the charitable profits
from these
"Woodland Bling" nests
will be donated to
the local food bank in my hometown.
"in my life, 
I have never had to live hungry,
but I know that there are those who do,

"Woodland Bling" 
can be found here in
my ETSY shop.

(many thanks to my friend Mary
for always helping me to make these
nests so beautiful for you) ~

Some updates~
Your Vintage Spring nests are finished (!!) and will debut on my blog the first of May. I am now already at work on new designs for my ETSY shop later this fall. New hats and wraps are already in progress~

One of my lovely and generous blog readers (from France) sent me this cute little owl brooch in the mail a few days ago -- but there was NO name attached to the card or envelope.  I would LOVE to thank you properly -- won't you email me please?  Thank you so much for this adorable little gift and sweet card! xoxo

We have had a few warm days --- already I have been outside among our spring daffodils taking photographs for my upcoming Spring giveaway --- you won't want to miss this one! 

My windows are open (although it is a tad bit cool today) and the birds are singing their spring songs --- I am so happy:)
