Talking Hey, Ho! Knotting time in Santa's Workshop!

Well, the hand-made macrame hanging toy is finished and hanging in Sweetheart's cage. Sweetheart already played with it, preening a part of off-white frayed rope from her old toy. I incorporated parts of her old toy -- knotted frayed rope pieces, old wooden beads, and an old piece of wooden doweling, plus I knotted in some natural corn husk from an Indian corn decoration, hanging in the kitchen.


I made her macrame toy a long hanging, like her old rope toy, so it would still be familiar to her.



In the uploaded split-screen photo, the image on the right spotlights the end of the macrame piece -- I just adore macrame fringe/tassels and I quite like how this one turned out.


Hope everyone here, especially our bird friends, a Happy Holidays!
*hugs* Sweet Parakeet

That looks brilliant. I'm glad she is already getting stuck in. It must be very satisfying to see!

Very nice! It looks like Xmas came early for your Sweetie Pie. She gopt a snuggy and her old new toy hand crafted by MOM with love.



I'm happy to hear she has played with it already and likes it. It was smart of you to incorporate her old toy with the new one.

Thanks! And it turns out that J. hung this piece in a spot where she can reach the top of it (where the big knot containing beads and corn husk + frayed old off-white rope is located) from the top perch, and she can also reach the end of her toy, (fabulous fringe with old frayed rope + corn husk) from her favorite side perch -- where she likes to watch television.



AND it feels great to re-purpose her old toy with macrame arts and part of a ball of twine for $1.25. xD


And my siggy snow owl wants to pass on this message~

Happy OWL-idays to everyone! chirp! chirp!
