A nest for the birdie

I've stitched a little nest for the birdie on the banner.

Spring banner - nest

I used dark brown pearl cotton and a variegated embroidery floss, making it look like a hodgepodge of sticks. I didn't have much of a plan starting out;  I'm happy with the results. Sometimes I think I do better if I trust my instincts and dive in.

The birdie was adorable and this next is soooo clever! Yes, go with your instincts- they're good.
