A Brand New Nest is (almost) here! A preview~~

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

A new limited edition nest is about to be born~~


a little blue nest~~

a little pink nest ~~

Every sweet little precious baby

is a STAR!


They bring hope and love and light

into our world.






a little preview of the yarns~~


Exquisite yarns in pinks and blues ~~




A generous percentage of the profits will be donated to a very special charity that is near and dear to my heart~~

(I can hardly wait to tell you where the charity proceeds are going!)


Some incredibly talented artists have donated their time and talents to assist me in the making of this newest Limited Edition Charity nest~~

"beautiful ribbons and trims"



The embellishments are out of this world gorgeous! My best friend Mary will be adding some of her magnificent bead work to each beautiful little nest~~

(you can click on the photos for a closer look at the incredible embellishments)

(you will swoon over the beautiful stars and the embroidered and beaded little moons!)


(sigh ~~ they are so beautiful!)

I can hardly wait to show you the beautiful nests~~ tell you where the charity proceeds are going~~ introduce you to the talented artists who have helped me with this incredible project~~~


Fifteen little nests for baby girls, and fifteen little nests for baby boys~~

Coming soon~~~

The Twinkle, Twinkle Nests!


(I'm so excited!)

ps - here is your first little sneak peak (without the embellishments of course!)



Won't be long now!

I am impressed !
Any day now my very first grandchild will be born . A baby-girl and it is like long ago ....
When I was pregnant everywhere I looked I saw pregnant women and baby's ....
All of that is happening again .
Only this time the grandmother-part is everywhere .....
To me a whole new world .........
It's comforting a lot of women are going ahead of me being amazing grandmothers , doing amazing things ......
Your everyday-life is blessed my friend !
Have a great time !
All the best for you from me .

Dearest Vicki,
I am so excited to see the nests in their entirety. These beautiful images were sooooooooooooooo enticing and too much of a tease! :) Your creations are extraordinarily beautiful!!!! What a fabulous shower gift they will make!

I do hope you are enjoying fair weather. We are readying for our first great storm of the season. We are promised winds, quarter-sized hail, thunder and lightening, and perhaps, twisters! YIKES! Not a bird is chirping on this unusually still morning ... surely, it is the calm before the storm!

Jody Hammer said...

I. CAN'T. WAIT. I want to see them all finished!!!!

Lili said...

Oh my dear Vicki you are such a tease! But at least you gave us a sneak peak. Oh my those embroidered and beaded half moons are so exquisite and of course I can't wait to see all that gorgeous yarn embellished like only you can do! I will be patiently awaiting to hear and see more about these charming twinkle twinkle nests. xoxo ~Lili

Mosaic Magpie said...

Those little yellow beaded moons took my breath away! What a treasured keepsake these are sure to become. Indeed each child brought into this world, so fresh from God, is a star. Thank you for your imagination, creativity and willingness to give beyond yourself by creating these nests for charity.

You're such a tease! Can't wait to see and read more about this new project. Cheers! Elaine

Dear Vicki

This all looks too wonderful for words~ I am happiest when creating things and I can see you love that too. You have a wonderful giving spirit Vicki. I look forward to seeing the unveiling! Every embellishment looks perfect.

Your day at the Island of Curacao has left me yearning for a walk through those streets and markets. Maybe oneday my Mr Darcy and I can wonder around hand in hand....

Love to you

This is such a beautiful post-I hope I know someone having a baby-That yarn is stunning

those eggs look like they could be eaten.

This is so strange I have not been able to comment on your blog for ages.

xoxoxo Penelope and Magellan.

Hi, Vicky,

Well we never got to meet up at the Fair in Maryland. My mom was released from rehab that morning. So I got to the fair around 11:00. Then my cousin and I were "on a mission" to get to the stuff we wanted so we could get back home again.

I assume you got there. I would love to hear about your trip and what you got. A comment on my blog would be fine. I did take pictures of my stuff. For 3-4 hours at the Fair, I was certainly able to spend money quickly. :-)

Jeanie said...

How utterly delightful, how beautiful! Thanks so much for visiting the Marmelade Gypsy (or actually, I think you came to Chopsticks and String, my other blog) -- it led me to you! I'm a knitter as well and while I'm in a bit of a slump, I love the inspiration! I will indeed be back!

Lisa said...

These are going to be amazing I know. Love all the beautiful yarns & the star beads (or buttons) & the little cresent mooms & can't wait to see.
As for the charity. I'll bet I know. I'm just guessing of course, might be wrong. I'm thinking it's one that is very close to my heart as well because of my kids. We'll see.

Hi Vicki,

I am sooo excited to see a new nest creation made by you!!
Can I put my reservation in for a "Pink" twinkle nest??
I have a new Grand daughter coming the end of October.
Let me know if I can reserve one from you this early?

Blessings, Love and Hugs,
