This is the first in a series of three birds’ nests each one in a different season. They were inspired by looking down into a blackbirds nest made in the creeper under my bedroom window.
This embroidery depicts a nest in spring with three eggs. The main focus is on the cosy enclosed feel of the nest achieved by the juxtaposition of textured wools with silken threads. The leaves are made by free machine embroidering onto water soluble fabric and organza.
