A Photo Shoot With Elliott!

I finished Elliott last night. He turned out pretty nice, but the only thing I will need to change next time is his mouth, it's not really long enough in the snout to get your thumb in to! I did go out and buy some glass buttons for his eyes but when I thought about it, this one will probably be for one of the toddlers, so I thought it safer if I just stitched the eyes on (we don't want a choking hazard!) So, here he is all done

It's a beautiful sunny day today, bright blue skies and a high of 79! Elliott suggested it would be nice to go outside and photograph him in his 'natural environment' :-) So let's go. . . .

"see me slither"! (for some reason I keep thinking Elliott is a snake!)
"oooh get a close-up of me, your readers will love it!"

"one final 'framed' shot - yes lovely!"

"now, what is that strange creature walking out there? What? He lives here?"


Q: What's more ferocious than a dragon?
A: A 'Boo Boo Kitty'!

He's adorable! What a great present for a toddler! I'd say definitely make something for yourself with the Malabrigo - balance out all that gift knittnig!

He looks so at home in the garden. You'll give him a complex if you keep calling him a snake though!

The dragon is cute, but I think the furry face is even cuter!

It is cute! So is your doggy. He looks like my Gus who died a few years ago. :( It makes me happy to see your sweet doggy though.
