Is it very naughty to have a blog post called 'Birds' on International Women's Day? Well, it's only because I wanted to tell you about an art project called 'Little Bird' I'm going to contribute to.

A flock of handmade birds by different artists will be gathered together for an installation at the Dukes Theatre in Lancaster from 22 March to 17 April. After the exhibition, all the birds will be sold in aid of  Women for Women International.

I received an email invitation last week, but I gather from the website that it is open to everybody.  They also have a suggested template, but you can use any medium you wish. The birds have to be delivered by 15th March, so there's not much time! I haven't finished mine yet, but will post a photo when I have. It's a larger version of the crochet amigurumi bird in the photo above.

Also, I thought it was a good opportunity to share this video. I can't remember whose blog I saw it on, so apologies if it was yours. It's from a US TV spoof of the creative craftsters of Portland, Oregon
