Happy New Year!



Happy New Year! I had so much fun today because I got to organize stuff for the trip tomorrow, clean, and crochet a parakeet! I know... it's weird, organizing, cleaning and crafting are my favorite things to do.

I bought this pattern from a very talented Australian artist, Crochetroo on Etsy a few months ago. I have been wanting to make this little parakeet for months and had not given myself the time until today. I have all of my parakeet yarn ready to take to CA to make more! It was so easy and fun to follow her pattern.

Green and yellow parakeets hold a special place in mine and Melanie's hearts. Our first pet ever, when we were 10, was a parakeet named Sweetie. He was a very special bird who brought alot of joy to us.

I am going to make Melanie one while on vacation. I am very excited to do it!





Here is a pictue of Sweetie. I cannot believe this photo was taken about 30 years ago!
He was a very special bird.

One of my roomies in college had a parakeet. Brings back memories...
You are right about not knowing how to sew. You cracked me up! I was so happy with my crooked little curtain, you have no idea! Thanks for the heart!
