    Hobbies

    What is it that you enjoy doing when you aren't working or taking care of your birds? I have just started canning and preserving this year, but my main hobby is cross stitch. I take mine with me when I go on long trips, take it to the laundromat, take it anywhere that I will be sitting for a while and can pull it out. Here are a couple pieces of my work.

    This is my "grand cat" that is owned by my future son-in-law. Her name is Precious.


    This is Mickey. She was the only documented bird with cushings disease.


    My Frankie.


    Bo and Judy that belong to a friend of mine.


    I've done heaps more, but this is a sampling. Now, what do you all do?

    Parrots

    Lineated Parakeet named Kobe (M) and (F) named Tango Maine Coon Kitty named Christine
    They are lovely. Did you draw the pattern yourself before stitching? I used to make pretty jewelry but gave that up because it was too costly. Now I am looking forward to the Photoshop learning. I also bought a book on tree identification since there are so many around here. It is fun. Also bird watching outside. We have many species here such as Eastern Bluebirds and just about every woodpecker you could imagine. More species of course.

    Elizabeth those are beautiful!!

    Wendy -- it takes months to finish one piece! That's a lot of hours. I pushed myself hard to get my grand-cats done in time for his birthday. I was given the picture just a month before. My hubby bought me a computer program that takes a picture and turns it into a pattern.
