A Fiber Nest

A Fiber Nest

I was planning on posting about my friend Paula’s recent trip to New York City and her visit to several cool fabric shops. But Paula got distracted and didn’t get the photos sent to me. Instead, she sent me photos of a fiber nest that she created. If you’re on the forum, you might know Paula as ‘sula’smom’. Sula is her dog and after a storm, Sula was really interested in something in the yard. Sula’s dad went to check out what was going on and found this:

Baby squirrel was really cold and barely breathing so Paula got him warmed up.

I hope Paula has all her shots up to date 🙂

Paula sent me more photos as she was trying to get on the forum and couldn’t find her password. So Rocket J or Rocky for short, was helping her.

He’s looking at the forum trying to find her password.



Oh no! What’s that? Animal fibers? What are you doing with animal fibers?



Rocky got spooked by seeing that category animal fibers and had to retreat to the pocket of safety on Paula’s shirt. Time for a little nap.

  1. Aaw, that’s gorgeous 🙂
    I wonder if animal rescue centres would like variations on bird pods?

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
