Bank Holiday Sunshine

Hi everybody,

Hope you all had a great Bank Holiday Weekend.  I know this is a little late but I have been painting the fence ( 16 sides and 1 gate) to be precise !

Unfortunately, I thought that I had been bitten but a visit to the doctor revealed that I had bleeding under the skin and have some nasty bruises on my legs – so much for getting your legs out in the sunshine.  Have to get a blood test done to find the cause.

Anyway, I eventually had some relaxing time and it was warm enough to bring Hetty outside and hung her cage in the shade of the Cherry tree …………….


In the first picture Hetty is busy shredding some celery…… then whetting the beak and finally posing with me.

Bye for now.




Hetty’s world

My human will keep photo-bombing my posing for pictures.  If I was only bigger I could block her out.  Not that I don’t love her unconditionally peck peck (kisses for the un-intiated) but you sometimes a girl needs her space.

I’ll settle here

It’s turned cold and wet again.  Snuggle time!!!




It’s Friday


Just finished this – needs a press but I wanted to share him with you.

And there’s more ……….


Finished this gentleman a while ago but nevertheless they both evoke the Jazz/Blues era perfectly.  Just need to get them framed.

(Both images are from Royal Paris and designed by Hazel Soan  copywrite Rosenstiel’s)

Hope you like

Snowy Sunday

Hi everyone, it is snowing again in Hertfordshire, just enough to make you snuggle up indoors.  I feel sorry for all my feathered and human friends who have to brave this cold spell.


not sure why it is upside down but when plays it is right way up!!!!!!


Birdy Bytes – Sunday

hetty on her own

Good Afternoon Everyone.

Well what a week it has been, my human has been off work for a few days and luckily it was when all that horrible wet stuff called snow came.  The fleece that I’m standing on looks like snow but I have to say that I wouldn’t put my delicate toes in such stuff.  (I’m a warm bird don’t you know).  I don’t actually run around in the sand either, I like my perches where I can hang upside down and do acrobats.  Best of all I like sitting with my human friend and obtain scratching and kisses.  Soft I know but there you have it!!!

Here are some more pictures:



pose…..slight feather adjustment……and finally a kiss









Lady Greensleeves update

greensleeves 2

Hi everyone

I’ve just realised that I haven’t posted anything to do with sewing at all this year.  Well I have been industrious and not just playing with my parrot.  As you can see the above Lady Greensleeves is progressing well.  Also the image I have sewn of my parrot is complete and I am just cross-stitching the background.

Ta-ra for now!
