“Elephant Surprise” is not a disgusting, illegal casserole, but a wonderful gift from New Mexico. What a nice surprise to open an envelope and find this guy!
Look at that detail! Thank you, Grace! Her note asked, “You do like elephants, right?”
Yes I do! And even though one could love elephants in a passionate crusading sort of way, that’s not how I love them. I just do. Interestingly, the first elephant quilt I made (above), I called “Grace”. Not only that, a pregnant friend bought the quilt for her unborn child and then named her “Grace”, too! Today I take elephants thread and generosity as proof positive of grace.
i’m glad. i loved how just such simple stitches were so evocative of the eyes…such
tenderness in them
Yes. I really like the trunk too.
Oh that face! What a wonderful elephant and wonderful surprise! How knowing and generous of Grace. I like seeing her gift among all of your others and your story. What a soothing post Dee. Just lovely.
I love the face too!

The connections yes surprise. They shouldn’t but they do.
heart lifting, happy happy post
