Spike the Bird Wins Young Cross-Stitcher of the Year


Alicia points us to an article on The Sun online about Spike, a three year old bird who loves to stitch. Yes that’s right this little bird can cross-stitch!! So much so that she’s won the Young Cross-Stitcher of the Year award.

From the article:

Spike spent months watching her owner Sandra Battye creating patterns before picking up a needle in her beak herself. “One day I just sat and didn’t stitch. It seemed to frustrate her. Then suddenly she picked up the needle in her beak and began cross-stitching herself. I was staggered. Now I can’t stop her. She still gets a bit confused at how the patterns work but she is very good at pulling and pushing the needle through the fabric.”
