This piece was done in response to the Cyber Fibre Journal Group theme “Houses”. I think it took about 5 seconds for the idea to come to my head and thereafter I couldn't change my mind no matter how hard I tried. The original background fabric was a lovely discharge dyed piece. Unfortunately there wasn't enough contrast with the green branches. No problem, I love putting paint onto finished pieces. The piece got exciting for me when I added the black thread contrast. The nests are made from bits of thread, dyed cheesecloth stitched onto water soluble stabilizer and then shaped over a rock until dry. The eggs are glass and turquoise.
