Peanut, the royal blue elephant from the legend series is now a delight in beads. That is the way I think of him. Again I made the mistake of not using from my pound boxes of beads and naturally ran out what I had picked. Luckily I had several packets of Precosia beads that were very close and was able, by mixing the left-overs and the new bag, to get a good enough match. I still have an idea how I want the elephant to be so may need to do another one.

Haiku Stone Path, and having so much correspondence with Sus, I started an elephant for him. The only way this one can 'work' is to have it flying. As of last night I had one ear, the belly and two legs done. I hope someday Ty Co. makes an elephant with stiff legs as the unicorn has.

Did the new silverish fish on the weekend but hurt so much I did not get across the room to photograph it. I am not so happy with these colors. I much prefer the goldfish. I was so sure I knew what to put together with the silver sequins. . . but.
As I dug through my stash of animals I found this unicorn from the 2009 series. It is so much better when the animals have stiff formed legs. Enjoyed working on this one. It needed no extra padding. I am wondering if my idea is too reddish for the tail and mane. Still I hope someone will fall in love with him.
On Sunday, Claudia, from Long Island NYC was here and she said that these would really sell if they were
in a shop in NY. Or even in Sausalito - but that is not happening. I am happy selling from CHAC in Point Arena.

The goldfish with real scales yesterday. . .
And now today it is finished.
Barbara Fast stopped by with the fabric for her new quilt and on it was a dragon needing silver scales. So glad to be able to share. Thankful that I had finally done the fish scales right so I could show her how it is done. She picked up the 14 animals I had been saving for the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital - who never contacted me so I do not know if my entry forms were faulty or if they really saw my stuff and did not like it. Was glad to get the extra animals into the gallery for the 4th. The parade is on Sunday the 7th in Point Arena so I hope the gallery will get lots of visitors and people wanting animals with beads all over them!
