A special blackbird in spring with forsythia, using a mix of hand and machine embroidery and applique. The work is stitched onto canvas and backed with linen.

I have used different linens for the piece of work. The word 'ouzel' embroidered onto the linen is another older word for blackbird.

A one off textile work, a lovely gift or decorative piece for the home.

Measures 20cms x 18cms


Blackbirds always mean spring to me, such a lovely sound in the early evening. And I associate them with forsythia bushes, a good contrast between the black and yellow.
