Sudden inspiration smacked me in the face while visiting another blog..
someone who makes the most awesome old mohair friends had created an elephant, sweet as could be!
Ive made a few elephants before, but hadnt tried needlefelting one yet. But I suddenly knew that it was the next thing I was going to do and I knew that it wasnt going to be just an elephant.. but
It would be an EASTER elephant!
I went to bed for two nights in a row, thinking about easter elephants! (what do you think about when you go to bed at night??)
When I finally got started on it, I hated it.. but that happens sometimes.. then I just have to keep on playing with it and tweaking it until it takes on its own life and becomes what its meant to be!
I knew that this ellie needed to have an easter basket and some chicks,
And I knew that she would need to be balancing on a big felted easter egg!
And what easter elephant doesnt have a big fat bunny tail and big fluffy bunny ears?
she is happy with her fine self now.. except that now that I'm looking at the pictures, I think she should be holding her sign in her trunk. (lol, I almost said beak instead of trunk!)
Well, I hope you like her. Now i'm off to the shower and then off the see the Lyndonville HS production of Barnum .. (heehee..speaking of elephants!)
and after the show, my whole family and all their significant others and friends of ours are all going out to dinner to the new restaurant in albion called the Crooked Door.
soo... off I gooo
thumpety, thumpety thump!
(oh.. I havent forgotten about my giveaway.. I'll do it tonight or tomorrow.. so keep leaving comments!)
