High up on a limb, the birds perch, guarding their nest. Far below, at the water’s edge, animals go about their daily routines, leaving tracks by the stream. A rascal raccoon has noticed the nest high above and is trying to reach the prize. All in a day in the forest.

Digitized embroidery and thread play, machine quilting and applique. Machine felting of nest and embellished logs. Found yarns, threads and a few bird feathers complete the nest.
