Pink Elephant Swap

Now Cathy has recieved my package I can post pictures. This was my first swap, which was a bit stressful. Would she like it? Were the colours right? Cathy has a thing for elephants so I sent this one and a matching bag.
Elephant pattern from ISBN 483476348X. I managed to make it not so unbalanced this time by putting some by using some of these to weigh its bottom down.
The spring weather has started here (although I'm sure it will be winter again for the weekend). The girls and I are going to see what we can do with the vegie patch which has been horribly neglected over winter. Have a great weekend everyone.

I have the same book and made one of those little guys and he was always tipping over on his nose...a wonderful idea to fill his butt with beads! I will have to try that...He is too cute.
