May's Bird Nest Hand Embroidery Pattern

My new hand embroidery pattern is my most adventurous
project yet.  Usually I like simple outline embroidery
and in this pattern I have more areas filled in
and used floss blends to get even more color ranges.
The pattern is designed to be as detailed as you want.
The twigs can be filled in more, more French knots for the plants,
and more satin stitches on the leaves.  It's a fun pattern
to experiment with adding other stitches as well. 

The painting I used as inspiration for the pattern.
