The Best Nest
The challenge at Lasting Memories this week is paper piecing. I love using my Cricut so I had to participate. I came up with this lo as a homage to one of my favorite childrens books. It was also callled The Best Nest and was by P.D. Eastman. I used pictures from last spring when the Robins built their first nest outside my bathroom window. It was so cute to watch the babies wait for mom and dad to come back with food. I used plain cardstock for the whole lo. I cut the title from Plantin Schoolbook,the nest from Picturesque, the robin from Nates Abc's and the tree branch from Serenade. I really like the way the lo turned out. Thanks for looking.
P.S. you can go here to see a video of this mama bird feeding the babies.
