Button Nest for Little Bird

The little button nest for this bird.  The bird was embroidered on felt and appliqued to the piece of needlework.














This is the entire  piece and it's called "The Rose."  I did it for my mother who nurtured and loved roses all her life.  The beautiful embroidered rose is an antique applique given to me by a friend. I painted the button by the picture of my mother.   She was 16 at the time and now just turned 93.

Love your buttons! That's a great idea for a nest treatment. I'd never have thought of it.
