Superior 114 - 6 Attractive Parakeets

Superior 114

It was tough for parakeets back in the day - not anything like the cush setup they've got nowadays where all they have to do is sit in their cage, tweet, and generally mess up the corner you've got them in with all those feathers. No, back then, there were standards for housepets. They had to be attractive, for starters. And then there were the household chores - Polly better be keeping the house in tip-top shape if he didn't want to become a hot wing at the next family picnic...


These 6 adorable parakeets are brought to you by the generosity of Mary Ellen, who kindly scanned them for me. And the next time you feel like you've got it rough, try rolling out the dough with no hands!

These are sweet, Flor! I was thinking I might stitch either these or the previous bird patterns for my kitchen.

These are great - I normally am a bluebird obsessive, but would happily have these little chaps helping me out in the kitchen

Once again, some truly cute patterns. Thanks for sharing them with us. It really means a lot to me and my quest to stay in touch with happy memories of learning to cross-stitch, embroider and sew with my Mom.

oh, I love your blog, last winter I was embroider crazy, every night I curled up with a tea towel, or pillowcase. I had fun and made lots of gifts for friends. I wish that I had known about your site, because I was searching all over for patterns.
Thanks for posting, I am newly inspired. I would like to put a link to you page from mine, if thats OK.

I love these! Thanks so much!

Well, no one wants an unattractive parakeet on their teatowel do they? Maybe all the unattractive ones got jobs with pirates? h'argh!

Do you by any chance know of a collection of transfers that are little girls from countries all over the world? I'm not sure of the date they were made, but I can email you pictures of some if you want. My sister in law is looking for some extras that she needs for a quilt.
