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

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.

A bird that shouts “shoot me” and I make Duke stop for each one to get a picture. I was always going to work one and the reason for this one was because it is not on a tree and it is facing me. Those beautiful colours also come alive against the drab background.

The frame is 50 x 57 cm and weighs 3.2kg

The reserve price is set at R1000.00 and postage is to be paid by the winner if applicable. The donor will pack and ship the item on receipt of payment in to the VHR Account. Addresses to be sent via pm please.

Bids will close end of April 2013.

I will start with the reserve price of R1000. It is an absolutely stunning picture. A real treasure.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Oh WoW, I won a superb piece of art and can't wait to get it on my wall!

Thank you Sahrifa for donating a fine piece of art!

Thank you Dinky Bird to putting it all together!

Lion Queen I'm sending you a PM!

Now where can I find the next auction to raise some funds for the webcams!

Hey Markus, I'm not sure myself, but maybe it's best if you send a PM to Dinky Bird or JenB or Sharifa and asked them. I could not find a new Webcam Auction yet, but I hope there is one!

Hi Markus, no there will not be as far as I am aware.

If you are keen to assist/take part in raising funds for the webcam projects, please let me know.

Thanks for the reply, DinkyBird. Pity as I would have loved to bid and hopefully be a proud owner of one.

As for the latter I will definitely let you know, thanks.
