Super FUN Crochet Parakeet Exchange!



Happy Monday everyone!


Look who just flew to me all the way from England?


Meet ...

Fern & Fig


Mimi Le Fleur's new parakeets!

Lynne and I just did another fun exchange creating parakeets from the same wonderful pattern created by Crochetroo.



Here I am welcoming them to my office. :)




Aren't they fabulous!



I love the yarns she chose!

Here are the two I sent to Lynne after they arrived in England!



Meet
Pippi



and Squeak!







Lynne welcomed them to her amazing English garden!



How fun to have a crochet pen pal!



I love how the same pattern can inspire so many different pieces of art!



What are your favorite patterns or projects that you like to make?



Please tell me all about them and include a link if you have one to show.



I would love to see! :)

Fern and Fig look so happy in your beautiful home Missy!
I adore my little Pippi and Squeak, they are so lifelike!
And what a brilliant pattern this is.
Having a crochet pen pal is the best thing EVER, it is such fun to crochet the same things and see how different they are.
Now for the next project - hooray!!
Hugs, Lynne xx
