Nancy (no blog) commented on my last post, predicting my yellow-legged hen was being chased by four calling birds. Too true, they were fast on her heels! Here is Four Calling Birds, stitched in one day!
Rather, a "squawking" bird. I'm not real sure about using a parrot as a Christmassy bird but it's stitched! I used to work in a pet shop and advice I gave about birds was simple, "All birds are noisy. All birds are messy. It's just a matter of volume and quantity." I'm not fond of parrots. Although they are beautiful creatures they require a lot of attention and patience. I do like small birds, like finches, and find their soft, "Bee bee bee!" calls soothing background noise. Quite different from the ear-splitting shrieks of annoyed or bored parrots!
Jessie is in the city this week for a job interview so I am pet-sitting her Betta, Mage, while she is away. I must say, Jess has the most uncooperative pet to take photos of. I tempted him to the top with his pellets but when I tried to adjust the light so I could get a photo without glare, he hid under the plant. Maybe he's just pouty because his person is away?
