Birdy pick of the week

Il_fullxfull.52852780

Do I need a good reason to feature kitsch crocheted budgies on this blog? Not really. BUT, it is Australia Day. Have a good one, Antipodean birdies. Budgie crochet pattern, US$5, from Queensland-based Crochetroo's Etsy shop. Check out the lorries, too!

    I love them! Too cute!

    Happy Australia Day, Ms Birdy! I actually looked like one of these budgies today – my husband made me wear green and gold to an Australia Day BBQ.

    Ooooh, I’m so excited to have found this blog (via the bloggies- I was intrigued by the name and banner :) ) as it just so happens that crochet birds etc. are my speciality (http://thepigeonloft.etsy.com) and I made a note today after seeing a small article in a magazine to look into Hello! Lucky for inspiration. Thanks for the fab post on their beautiful prints.
    …And have a grand Australia Day!

    Delightful & cute!
    Visited an antique&collectible sale on Sunday where I purchased a Westmoreland milk glass plate, scalloped edge, with a colored picture of a budgie on it.

    I am reading that as a good thing!
    My Nana actually taught me how to crochet, and I am so glad she did.
