I love parrots in the schwingtime

Turns out I only have to sew the ribbon edging on *three* times to get it hemming right but before I go unpick and do that, I have to share this.

Courtesy of the ever-wonderful Jenny Crusie at Aargh Ink (who I learned of courtesy of the ever-wonderful tamaranth), who had the book as a Christmas present and was inspired to share; I found the slide show on the New York Times site when I went looking to see what these parrots dressed up to re-enact scenes from the movies might look like. Ava Ballard had 40 parrot pets who must have been very happy to wear the costumes and perch in the sets the family made; the photos are utterly surreal and only a fraction of what's in the book.
