I’m loving birds at present and after 18 months of construction disruption close by, I feel blessed that they are now returning to our garden.
Their song is like a sweet heartwarming tonic after the din of demolition and the intrusive vibration of ground working and construction.
Bird activity is recommending with the sweet joyful chorus of this busy beautiful season for the birds.
Inspired by their uplifting song and always fascinated by flight I’ve created a number of fabric birds.
Designed and printed from plants in and around my garden using heat sensitive dye techniques, then embroidered and embellished before stitching the birds.
The birds have developed from work for a customer’s commission, in which I was asked to produce a bespoke cushion design of a bird with flowers.
This led on to a tulip stocked window boxes design for a draught excluder for our home, which featured a bluebird.
