Elephant in the room





When I make anything I put a lot of thought, attention and love into it.  All my garlands are a bit like children and we all know you should never have a favourite child.  Somehow though, these have crept into my heart and I just love them a little bit more than anything else I have ever made.  But sshh! don't tell anyone x

    1. Thank you, that's a relief! I had someone ask on my facebook page if I could do the Africa 'big five' including a buffalo! I think they have far higher opinions of my ability than I could ever aspire to!! x
