Zoo Animals

I know that I still have to show you the lavender quilt.  Next post!  I have been stitching madly to create some new blankets and have started on the zoo animals.  Here are the first 2 animals - the giraffe is causing me a bit of trouble!  I know that Helen has plans for embroidered zoo gates and lots of animals!  I guess this is a start.  I think the monkey is adorable but I think he needs a tail!


 Success!  I have done the giraffe.  What do you think?

    Oh Jan, those zoo animals are just so cute! I really think you need to come back to SAGA and teach us all how to stitch them!!!

    They’re very cute! I do love the giraffe, especially his little horns - and you’re right, that monkey needs a tail :)

    Hi Jan

    I love the giraffe, face on, you are very clever to be able to adapt the designs the way you do. Look forward to seeing them in class next week.

    Hi Jan,
    Please , please come back to the states. We miss you so. The animals are just great. Jackson Richard, the great-grandson, is 2yrs old and he must have all three!. How about a twisted cord tail for our monkey?

    Love, Joan

    Jan -
    I haven’t even finished the Five Little Ducks from Atlanta SAGA 2 years ago but I promise to finish it by the end of the month if you’ll let us poor Americans who miss you so much at least buy these as a kit. Of course, I vote for you to return to SAGA…..
