I have been very slow getting a good picture of this. It doesn't quite feel like a "new" WIP anymore. I manage to work on it some most days.
I've also made a whole bunch of leaves. These are done with needlelace on wire. I just did it a bit simply. I formed the wire into leaves and did the outside edge with button hole, then just continued around the leaf. They will be wrapped with thread before being attached. The two little pink bits are the flower buds. They are felt shapes stitched over with long and short.

I made 2 nests and 1 mushroom. These are my first little projects with needle felting, but likely not my last! I glued them on to pieces of cherry wood. For the nests I made little branches of wire sticking out from the sides. They look a bit odd in the pictures, but much better in person! The eggs are polymer clay. The mushroom is best in my opinion, and so I think I will make more of them. It was fun to play around a bit!
