Welcome to the New Year! In December I adopted a third son... Pellenore is a 10 month old cockatiel and hopefully he will learn to talk as he keeps me company when I create. He's content out of his cage and loves to watch movies with me. Pelly also swings over my desk from a branch that we mounted to his cage. He still is quite shy and doesn't like to be hand held but we're working on that a little bit at a time. In the spring, when it's warmer in the studio he'll join me there, for now, he supervises me as I work at my desk editing on line classes and patterns. I'm sure he'll inspire a new doll... eventually. Right now he is more of a welcome distraction than an inspiration but we're still training me too.
