A Little Florida Camo?

You just never know what you’ll see

in the “WILDS” of Florida!

Maybe an elephant dreaming of swimming in the cool turquoise water!

But maybe he’ll be content to play in the lanai on these hot days.

After all…our lanai has air conditioning!

Don’t you love his tail?

Laurie said...

your soft stuffies are so cute, you really have a knack for this, small piece work, I love things you can work on on your lap, does that make sense? lol, small projects that require some hand stitiching, thats what I mean,
Iwas wondering, we watched a documentary yesterday and it was about the big python snakes that people let go in Florida and now have turned into thousands, because the area was so well suited.Have you ever saw one?

Darling little elephant. Love the fabric you used. Would be a cute addition for a baby shower gift, but of course then you would have to come up with something else but beads for the tail. thank you for sharing the pattern link. Hope all is well with you. have a great weekend.
