Bless Our Nest

I am having soo much fun with my vintage fabric and my garage saled embroidery hoops!  Today I made a super cute "Bless Our Nest" picture framed in my embroidery hoop.   This is something that I have not done since I was my daughter's age learning to sew and embroider with my Grandma.. brings back memories.. *sigh*.
So here is my "Bless Our Nest" picture.
I made it with 3 tan fabrics.  Cut out the shape of the nest and the center.  Then I sewed my twine onto the nest for a little dimension.  Then I sewed some lines across to make it look woven like a real nest.  Last I made my little pennants and wrote "Bless Our Nest" in marker and sewed it onto lighter twine.
Thanks for taking a stroll down memory lane with me!
