In search of animals...


The other day I ordered an e-pattern from an Etsy seller. By dinner I had made a little mohair elephant! I love e-patterns...they save paper, are here practically instantly!




We were out an about yesterday at this place...where I had a little more animal inspiration...and a different form of "taxidermy."






When we came home there was a little package from Scotland with a "wee bunny" from this shop. It immediately joined the hedgie and the ellie!


So the menagerie grows. There are still lots of dolls here but they all have pets now. A dear friend asked if Edie has met these animals. Not yet...but soon!

Happy weekend...and always,

enjoy the day!

What a charming group of creatures, Helen. I like your elephant. I have a little bear pattern to make. I need to purchase the mohair first though.
