Bird nests

These are the lasts of series of baskets. The bird nests panels contained twelve pictures, hence three baskets have been made.

I have designed and made the pilot one, just for myself, more than four years ago (!). It’s still proved very useful, as every time I’m tidying up my study, I’m throwing all the scattered  bits and pieces into it.

The second bag I designed and sewed for Ela, and for her sanctuary in particular :). The next two that are the subject to this post. They are just a consecutive creation, in which I used all the pictures from this non-typical panel of bird nsest/houses and various scraps.

This piece indicates the character of the other bit, obviously, and includes the elements and “stories’, which are not present in the cover, but they round the whole thing up.
