Do it for the Mobile Webcam and maintenance of the present Webcams

Not only do the cams bring the parks into our lives, but we get to share special celebartions with our forum family!

Each month an Embroidery Work, made and donated by Sharifa, will be auctioned and half the proceeds will go towards the Mobile Webcam Project and the other half towards the maintenance of the present Webcams.

You now have the opportunity to own one of these amazing works of craft, that have taken many hours and much skill to create while you will be assisting with two major forum fund raising projects.

My favourite subjects to embroider are birds. This picture appealed to me because of the challenge to embroider the birds and the butterfly realistically. An additional appeal factor was the gentleness and beauty portrayed by the egret. All this in the rich, soft, golden early morning light. The real challenge was going to be to capture that sunlight.


47 x 58 cm and weighs 3kgs.
Once again a reserve price of R1000. Postage, if applicable, to be paid by winning bidder.




The reserve price on this item is R1000. Bids will close end of February 2013.

The successful buyer will be responsible for postage costs of the item. The donor will pack and ship the item on receipt of payment in to the VHR Account. Addresses to be sent via pm please.

Shame, you can really place your bid Super Mongoose! If it becomes to high for me, there are 10 more to come, and Sharifa loves embroidering birdies! :thumbs_up: :D

Where is our other mites to support the webcam project?

Not only will mites support the webcams, BUT could be the proud owner of a true master piece!

My bet is: R1200-00 (no more choclates for Skillie, only grass.....)

:hmz: :hmz: :hmz: .... Let me think ..... :think:

I don't think many of the 'mites have seen this thread Super Mongoose! If Lion Queen didn't tell me about it, I wouldn't know either, because I first "clean" my notifications, and then go in onto the "active topics", and haven't come across it myself. :wall:

But maybe, if we keep this on the first page, more 'mites will see these gorgeous artwork pieces of Sharifa, and will join us here! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Hilda, agree with you, lets keep it on the first page! Me too did not know about this topic and almost missed it!

Dinky Bird, seems like you have inside information :hmz: :hmz: , but nothing is as special at the first one / edition on any thing, like this artwork, the first of 10, you know what I mean...

Lion Queen, keep using your "fame" to attract some more bidders please!

For me, I think a pair of these needle thread paintings will look just nice on my wall....
