The Bonny Budgie

Although spring is all but around the corner, it was entirely too windy and bitter cold today to venture outside for long. I opted to play with a pattern and thought I’d try something that brings warmer climates to mind. This little Budgie pattern is simple, but getting the stitches just right is a bit more challenging. I used two strands of black floss for the decorative stitching throughout this bird. I think he would have turned out better if I’d used one strand at the head, increasing to two and then three strands as I worked my way down the back and wing. Play with the colors and patterns to create your own Budgie. I’d love to see what you come up with!

    Thank you so much. I have two little budgies chattering away across the kitchen from me. One is green just like this and the other one is a beautiful blue. They were rescues and provide me so much joy.
