Those DARN birds!

We at NNC celebrated our 5th Anniversary last Saturday (14th April 2012). It was held at one of the member's house in Sg. Long, Selangor. Like previous years, we had the gift exchange and a challenge issued by our madam headmistress aka MW. This year's challenge was to make a BIRD, not an owl or a chick! And it started a avalanche of complaints....there were many cute owls out there in cyberspace and fairly easy to construct, and the members were sooooo...tempted to make one for the challenge, until MW threatened to confiscate any owls/chicks submitted during the meet ......thus the members meekly made their birds. Look at these awesome creations.......

Veroncia (winner again). Her bird is actually a pouch and pockets underneath the wings!

Bee Ee (centre - pink)
Diane from USA (left-green)
and I don't remember whose is on the right.


This one literally flew in...... from Shanny who reside in Switzerland.

Sally (made with over 500 pieces of paper)

Zarina - so delicately tatted

Jo - a coin purse


The very popular Angry Bird crocheted by Usha.
No. 12 by Radha (who unfortunately could not attend)
and the beakless one by Vivian.

Don't you agree that this is an amazingly talented group of ladies? There are some birds which I couldn't photograph as my camera battery was about to go flat towards the end part of the meet. :(

Write-up of the meet can be found here and here

Beautiful photos, Janet. I wish I had thought to snap the birds individually. I could hardly keep track of which bird belongs to who and who got what. LOL! I was too concentrated on yelling "open, open!" :P
