Here are the stripes!
This little zebra has recently found a new home with our grandson.
He is made using a pattern called Savannah Chaps, by Barbara Prime, which also includes and elephant and a rhino. It was purchased through Ravellry.
Very easy to make and good directions. I think there may have to be a few more of these.
It seems to have been a very busy time around here for the past two weeks. Lots of catching up with friends with lunches and many stitching days.
Unfortunately we also had a little scare with a fire breaking out at the end of our road, one day last week. Sadly it was one of 6 deliberately lit in the area on that day. We were very lucky because there was not a strong wind to fan the flames and it was under control in a matter of hours. But it still took over 100 fire-fighters to do this. We are very grateful to all these volunteers for the wonderful work they do.
Our state is on high alert again today with a forecast of strong winds and high temperatures. There are several fires still burning and there are concerns these may again head toward some towns. I hope everyone can stay safe.
One of the stitching days I went to on the weekend was a class with Lyn Brown that was held atCandleberry Country in Yarragon. It was a making a quilt using freezer paper stars and a small amount of applique. It wil have at least 12 green fabrics in all the stars and the applique. This is just the start.
I think I have to make 36 of these so I had better get a move on!
