Pets & patterns

This is our new resident. Jasper the Cockatiel. My fur baby tolerates birds as she has been brought up with them. She is the only cat of my 3 that we will put the birds near though.
Here she is with my daughter's Peachface, Bubbles on her back. The bird kept running away when i was trying to get a photo so my daughter had to hold it. :)


Finished Shell's latest heart in her lovely BOM. Today i received a parcel from Shell. I'd recently ordered 2 of her gorgeous patterns & the Valdani threads to go with them.
 Shell always wraps things so lovely.

& includes lovely choccies & a teabag. I've eaten the choccies & i'm drinking the tea whilst typing this.
Shell also included a special gift for me - 2 pieces of weavers cloth. I'm so lucky. Thankyou Shell, Harrington & Hannah.

I found that Honeysuckle Cottage is having a sale on patterns. The patterns i ordered arrived today also.

These 2 Bronwyn Hayes patterns &
Her book Chicken Feather. Such bargains.

Happy Stitching,

Thank you for sharing photos of your precious pets. Jasper is beautiful!

We have a Quaker parrot and an Amazon. Our golden retriever gets along well with our birds. The Amazon parrot repeats almost everything I say using my voice!

I think we could all take a leaf out of your sweet kitty's book. Beautiful photos and Shell's parcel looks devine..all that lovely thread too. Happy stitching.

I love seeing people's pets. Jasper looks a bit cheeky and your kitty doesn't seem to be at all interested. Very cute. Your parcels were wrapped very elegantly. I love that spotty ribbon. All your patterns and the book look great.

You have finally done it Jeanette! I have been to The Raspberry Rabbit and it's all your fault! I can't wait to get my package so I can shamefully show off just like you do!!!!!!! THANKS!
