Inspired by the rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence. Look and you'll see the King, the Queen, the maid, the bird who pecked off her nose, plus lots of pies!
Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing,
Wasn't that a dainty dish, to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house, counting out his money,
The queen was in the garden, eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the yard, hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose
nursery rhyme (132),
pie bird (5)

Thank you Sigrid, much appreciated.

For me your design is a top-tenner!
Awwwwww, thanks Amy
I absolutely agree with Ceri and kociara, I was disappointed as well...this collection is absolutely fabulous; should have been in top-ten, if not winner!
Thanks Marta. Was so close, yet so far. Glad you liked it. I still think it turned out pretty cute and think will make some nice stuff for my little nieces, so that will be a win - favourite Aunty award for me! :)
This was definitely the best entry in the contest, should have been no 1 and top 3 for sure. The voters choices sometimes are so disappointing!
Thank you so much, Ceri :)
So sad to see this didn't make it into the top ten this week. The whole collection is a total winner. x
Thanks Moira. I plan to (try) to make some kitchen stuff for my little niece with it. Maybe an apron and oven mitts so she can bake a few pies of her own and impress all the chefs in our family.
Still loving this and I'm sure that it will be a best seller for you!
Thanks so much, Jan, glad you like my design and you spotted my blackbird singing the blues. He's a little bit removed from the original nursery rhyme, but after I drew him, I decided he was an essential part of the design :)
Oh, my! This is hilarious! Love the feet sticking out of the pies and the crooning blackbird!
Thanks Lia, glad you like it :)
Amazingly fun and beautiful, loooove it!
Thank you Paula :)
Thank you Mariskadesign, Deborah and Victoria and everyone who has liked my design.
Hilarious! I love this. Your artwork is wonderful.
What a glorious work, so much fun!! Good work indeed!!!
Thanks Celia, Shelly and Virginie :)
Awesome design ! Your illustrations are so cute !
This is SO adorable! My favorite part is the feet sticking out of the pie! And the coordinates are just as fabulous!
such an outstanding print! A sure winner!
Thank you Sigrid, Angela, Marta and Moira, I really appreciate your comments :-)
Great work! The song is incredibly well translated. Charming, fun, great textures. I'm impressed.
Smashing illustrations!! Great design!
Fantastic work! Amazing collection!
Brilliant! Love all the details especially the blackbirds!
Thanks Isabella. I couldn't help adding the singing blackbird, he looked so silly, but made me smile too. I imagine he is singing some kind of jazz or blues song :)
You've included so many wonderful details in your design. I love all the elements but the singing blackbird is my favourite. Outstanding!
Thanks Amy. Once I started drawing this, I just couldn't stop!
This whole collection is just to die for!!!! Your illustrations have so much charm, where do I even begin!!! :o)
Thanks so much Jackie, Alexandra and Rhonda. I had a lot of fun with this one :)
What a clever and well-executed interpretation of the pie + the rhyme. I love the whole COLLECTION- great job!
Fun! Love that singing bird ...
This wonderful interpretation of a favourite nursery rhyme is filled with vitality and fun! It would be a fabulous design to use for a nursery decor or for children's quilts and clothing!
Thanks Julie and Laura
Wow, brilliant illustrations! Love the legs popping out of the pie!
LOVE LOVE LOVE it
Thanks everyone :)
You are so clever!
Wow!! I had the same idea, but your design is a lot nicer!! haha!
