What better way to begin this inaugural post than to introduce the latest addition to our family. This is Chiclet, a 3.5 month old female parrotlet purchased for me as a Valentine's Day gift from Jerry.
The initial gift idea was for a lovebird (romantic, no?), but after a little homework, we thought that Chiclet would be a better fit, especially with regard to noise. We purchased her on Sunday at our local "mercado" (more about the mercado to come). So, Chiclet becomes the 8th member of our family (joining me, Jerry, Brynne, our 3 cats: Cthulhu, Divali, and Issey, and Brynne's fish, Blue Fish).
Being the crafting demon that I am, I now need to sew a custom bird cage cover for Chiclet that will keep her warm at night. I've selected a fun fabric, but need to place the order, make the pattern, and stitch it up. Should I line or quilt the cover for additional insulation?
