New Wool For Nests ..

Hello my dear friends,

I love having a basket or two full of beautiful wool and yarn in my studio and once in a while, maybe once or twice a year, I love to shop for yarn and that is exactly what I did recently.

 The reason for this purchase was mainly that my daughter Ashleigh came up with a new theme for a new nest creation for me but I didn't shop just for that. I am not going to give away just yet which theme it is because I haven't got all my yarn together yet and I am not sure if it will turn out but I can tell you that I love the idea the way I see it in my mind. I can also give you a little sneak peek of the yarn I have gathered already.

This is some of my new wool I have bought for more Spring nests and maybe Winter nests ...

... so many lovely textures and colors too.

And this is the wool for my new themed nest ...

... so many beautiful shades of blues and so many different textures as well. I can't wait to start creating my newest nest to see if it will work out the way I can see it in my mind. Some of this wool actually just arrived from Turkey yesterday!
The only question now is when I will have time to start working on these new creations since I have so many things on my to~do list already for the rest of this year. Well, I don't really know but as soon as I do I will make sure to share it with all you lovely bloggers.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
