Wren

A Wren flew into my house today, I am reminded of Celt bird lore...a Wren is an embodiment of the divine feminine, but was oddly known as the 'king' of birds due to her immense singing voice. Due to this, she was beloved by Bards and thought to inspire joy, light heartedness, and creativity in all it's forms...message received and understood!!

Wren. The wren is a tiny brown bird, although it is heavier, less slim, than the even smaller goldcrest. It is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice. It is the commonest UK breeding bird, although it suffers declines during prolonged, severely cold winters.

Little Wren, Third smallest bird in the uk, but probably one of the loudest. Wonderful.

I treasure the old and worn and refashion them into little textile collages in my attic studio in a converted manse in Northumberland, England. Everything I make is individual and unique. This little wren is hand appliquéd and embroidered on to a support of an old patchwork quilt fragment. I have used some cotton fabrics for the appliqué and hand turned the edges. A very fiddly job! I have enhanced the appliqué with hand stitching.The collage is then sewn on to a piece of mount board to make…
