Long and Winding Road and Nest Eggs #1 (The Red Thread)

Here are two new pieces that I have finished on this Thanksgiving weekend. The scanner doesn't seem to give the red thread the correct colour, but you get the idea. I have hand-stitched the nest. The nest below used ribbon and stitching. The concept of the financial market being held together by a thread and therefore some family budgets being held together in the same way. My daughter asked last night why is the nest red, and I said of course that the "in the red" of the financial world is the reason.
