#123 Custom William--SOLD

Yes, I have no standards.  This is the third time in a month that I've repeated an elephant name.  And, on another subject, I am not getting used to the low winter sun, which  makes it near impossible to take decent pictures on my South-facing back porch.  That is why I had to take a picture of this elephant in a blueberry bush.  Desperate measures....

#96 Thomas 2--SOLD

I know my policy is to never repeat a name.  Sometimes you just have to make exceptions.  My mom, a few weeks ago told me that she'd noticed the first Thomas here on my blog.  She was kind of sad, because she would have liked to own him.
So, I broke my rule and made another one--the base fabric is the same, but I was all out of green corduroy and used this reddish one instead.  Which turned out good, since he matches the paint in her music room.  I think it turned out better than if I'd given her the original one.

#81 Annie--SOLD

I know.  I was only making 80 elephants.  I actually thought I'd never get to 80 elephants--it was just a nice story line.  But, here I am three months later and I've made more than 80 and I've sold almost all of them.  I was thinking about expanding out into kangaroos or armadillos or something, but those animals really don't mean anything to me, so I am just going to keep going with the elephants.  I am continuing down the list of names from 1932 until I get to 200 elephants. Ridiculous, isn't it?

#80 Geraldine--SOLD

#79 Beverly--SOLD

#77-#78 Henry and Jimmie--SOLD

A church in our town is doing a fundraiser for an orphanage in Haiti.  I was asked to contribute some elephants.  So, I am sending Henry and Jimmie. Lucy will miss them.
