3 birds

Been very busy at work this week. Didn't realize it's week 9 already for 'Bird a week'.
A child showed me some origami dresses, shoes and bags that she folded at home for her paper dolls on Thursday. So I showed her how to fold a crane and suddenly remembered I still got last year's origami club's display. Sorry it is old stuff but here it is!

Easter Chick Card

This is the Easter card we'll be doing in my sewing lunchtime club. It is outlined with wool on binca and cross stitch wing. Then it is mounted on card and finish with a Happy Easter peel-off.

Egg Bird

This bird was made out of polystyrene eggs. It tipped forward naturally like it was feeding so I fed it some peanuts. My daughter thought I was a bit OTT.

Didn't quite get the link right the first time! My fault, too haste to join in the fun.

Clay Bird

Made this bird out of air dry clay while watching the Spice Trail. The sound man recorded the bird calls but the cameraman didn't film any single bird!

Bird in the flock fun

I would like to join in the fun. Sounds great!

I think every bird would like a worm but may not be this one. A caterpillar has been invaded by some kind of fungus and mummified.

Some Chinese think it has medicinal properties. Yuck!

Took this photo last August when visiting Edinburgh Zoological Garden Mushroom World.
