Felted Birdsnest with Robin Eggs

The nest used to be a brown lambswool sweater...I felted it and made a large "flower" using this technique
Then I wet felted three robin eggs from robin egg blue wool roving I bought from a very nice seller on etsy.  The roving was gorgeous and the seller very generous!
I thought it turned out really nice.  I have also seen these nests made very small for brooches.
I snuggled the nest down in the Moonflower vine for some photos...you can see a bloom just starting to open at the top.
These flowers never cease to amaze me....
Definitely God's work...
all around us.
