Some Engelbreit and a Parakeet

I have been stitching away this week on my Mary Engelbreit WIP. I have now completed the upper half of the merry skier. Soon he should even have legs and skis. I have also inevitably added more yellow border and more blue sky. You can now see the bottom edge of where the moon will be. But now I am reluctantly putting it away so I can try to complete another month on my Petite Maisons, and to participate in the HAED Christmas project SAL. I have a barely begun HAED Christmas WIP called Santa's List by Ruth Sanderson.

The last couple of weeks, we have had an unusual visitor to our backyard birdfeeder. Our yard seems to have become an attractive refuge to someone's escaped parakeet. He is bright yellow and comes and goes with flock of sparrows.

He is less skittish than the sparrows, though, and will let us get quite close to him to take his picture. He also cocks his head as though listening to you when you talk to him. I hope he gets through the winter okay.
I wish all my fellow Americans a Happy Thanksgiving and a
wonderful stitchy week to everyone!

Thank you for visiting my Blog the other day! I'm still catching up from being away for a week.

You have a lovely project on the go. I didn't realize that she did larger patterns. It's going to be beautiful :o)

You must love birds :o) That parakeet is sweet and I hope he'll be okay.
