Default Budgies in Cross Stitch. My mother made this. Photo attached.

Hi. Everyone!!! Mum has been very busy making me a cross stitch Budgie shirt. It took mum 3 months to make it. She even put Indigo in there to. Indigo is spose to be the one on the right side next to the Olive Budgie... I only got to wear the shirt for half of the morning as it started to get cooler. Now i won't be able to wear it till Summer comes again. It is amazing how you can brighten up a dull shirt. I am really happy with it. Now mum is making a cross stitch Willie Wag Tail for me. I just have to find a cross stitch pattern for her to make one. I don't no if you can make a photo into cross stitch but ill have to look on the internet.. It would be nice to do one of the Willie that sits on our hand for my shirt. What do you all think of my mother's Cross Stitch Budgies.. Pretty wonderful for her first time in doing birds....

Budgie cross stitch done by hand by mum.


Thanks for stopping by..

Wow Lyn, that is One Stunning Shirt! :thumb up:


What a fantastic, clever person your mother is (You and we know that already of course )

To have your beautiful budgies sitting there on your front for you and everyone else to see must be a wonderful feeling.

It is very possible to turn a photo into a cross stitch pattern for a Willie Wagtail. One of your own photos would be brilliant!

I'm sure you will find a way to do that on the internet. Do let us know how you get on.

Thanks Ann. Mum loves doing cross stitch she has never done birds before so it was a challenge for her,,

That is a really beautiful cross stitch on your shirt that your mother has done Lyn. I used to do it too years ago, but never on a shirt. I may have to take it up again when I move.

Thanks Kate. Yes when you move into your new home you will be able to put your feet up and do some cross stitch. It is a terrible photo of me though...

I absolutely love it, Lyn! Your mum did a fantastic job with her cross stitching, Indi and his budgie friends look awesome!

Lyn,

Your mother is very talented and the shirt is beautiful!
I think she did an exceptional job of capturing Indi's likeness.
Thank you for sharing the picture of it with us.

My mother used to do beautiful embroidery, cross-stich and applique work on different articles of clothing for me. This brought back some lovely memories of her and the things she made for me.
