Supplies are gathered. No paintbrushes. No pens. Today is a day for a wren!
A favorite textile artist, Abby Glassenberg, has made available some patterns for her own version of the beautiful little wren. So, today, a friend and I will be doing our own version of this bird using vintage handkerchiefs - just in time for Valentine's Day.

It's only January, but I'm looking forward to spring and the return of birds to our frozen state.
There are so many great children's books and poems written about birds. I think maybe the wren could be great inspiration for a children's story . . .
Just one little sampling of good, old-fashioned children's poetry involving birds:
There was an Old Man with a Beard
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.
I would love to see some children's illustrations for this one!
Thanks for looking today!
