Sunny in Stitches

Look what arrived in the mail!
This wonderful cross stitch of Sunny by our friend Kelle (her shop is BitchingStitch on Etsy).

It captures her sunny good looks – from her sweet expression to her sunshine sky blue and yellow coloring.

Sunny has been having some health issues recently so this beautiful cross stitch portrait cheered her up (and her humans, too).
Thank you so much Kelle for this fantastic gift. We love you!


We received a package the other day from Kelle, John and their flock. Inside were some of the budgies’ favorite things. Millet and marshmallows (what we call shreddable kabobs).mkAnd an absolutely amazing framed cross stitch of the flock.npI couldn’t believe it! It’s our flock (and in the order they joined the family). The detail is amazing (Emmy’s one white cheek, the spot-on colors). And I teared up when I saw the little halos on Dewey and Gordie – and Gordie’s gold star. I’m going to treasure this forever. npcA thousand thank yous for this amazing gift. Love to you and your flock!

A new home for Spencer!

When Gordie passed away we received a lovely comment from Kelle. She wrote that she would be adopting an older budgie from a local rescue in Gordie’s honor. And she did! Meet Spencer (on the right, with Faust). spencerSpencer moved into his new home around Thanksgiving. He is now all settled and adjusted with budgie¬†siblings Faust, Hulk (below, left), Stephanie (below right) and humans Kelle and John.unnamedHere are the budgies enjoying their Valentine’s Day feast.flockHow absolutely wonderful that Spencer has found a new family. Thanks to Kelle and John he now has his happily ever after. And what a wonderful tribute to Gordie, as well. Hopefully, Spencer and Gordie will inspire another budgie adoption in the future!

Thank you Kelle, John (and Spencer!) for sharing your story! XOX
