It all started, you recall, in a gazebo in July. It rained heavily the whole day but we sat huddled stitching our birds pulling on more and more sweaters and coats. Truly, bird fever had gripped us.
We intend displaying them at our next exhibition, perching around the other exhibits, but what to do with them until then,,,you can't put them in a cardboard box! Mine have been perching in various places round the house until I came up with a plan.
I have been combing the souks and medinas of my nearby shires looking for a pretty cage for them with no luck. Then my daughter saw one whilst doing her weekly shop in a supermarket in Malvern Link! Perfect! I would never have thought of looking there.
So here it is complete with the little birds looking very at home. I really enjoyed making these...oh dear bird fever is gripping me again.
