Nesting instincts

                  Happy Tuesday to you all!   I have a sweet little rustic pincushion for you made for RRR.
    I have loved anything to do with birds and nests for many years.  Maybe because I feel I have that nesting instinct in common with the birdies.   This time of year I like to freshen things up inside the house....clean and spruce things up.   So with nesting in mind, this little pincushion's base is a bird's nest.  I adhered some old muslin cloth filled with cotton batting to it and layered it with a vintage doily.  From there I wrapped 2 1/2 inch Cotton blend ribbon around it and tied a big chunky bow to the top.  I added some embellies....such as wood spools wrapped with more cotton blend plain ribbon and than added twill tape and some white seam binding I inked here and there for some aging.  I added a couple of little eggs to the top and was done!  I love the soft nuetrals and rustic chic quality to this!  Hope you enjoy, Cherry
