The Superb Fairy-wren
I receive more suggestions for patterns to create than I will ever have time to design. This is a hobby for me and if there isn’t something about a bird or critter that I find appealing, designing feels like work rather than fun. This week I received a suggestion for a Fairy-wren. Having absolutely no clue about Fairy-wrens (as I don’t live in Australia!), I Googled them. Wrens are just plain cute, but photos of these birds were so endearing that I knew I wanted to make them (check out some pics here). To my friends in Australia, enjoy!
