Meet Eros!

Otherwise known as Cupid, Amor, Hot Stuff, etc. Only in bird form. And totally man enough to wear roses and lace. Cause he knows the ladies love it.

I bought the pattern off Etsy and rewrote it based on what I could figure out from it and improvised on the rest. I plan on making Eros his Psyche love in the form of an all white cockatiel. And then I'm going down to the beach to get some driftwood to make a tall perch for the two of them and will be putting it next to my desk. And decorating it with ribbons and pretty girly things because I'm a sucker for punishment.

I miss my birds. They were such a constant in my childhood, always giving me such happy memories. I remember when one of my birds (Smokey) was a baby and I'd rub his soft little orange cheeks and he'd make this adorable cooing-like soft chirp and fall asleep on me. Which is probably why I used alpaca yarn just for the cheeks on this cockatiel, the softness reminded me of him.

Too bad I have a cat who is a little too interested in the birds outside. Otherwise, I'd get a sweet little bird.
