How pleased was I to receive the latest issue of 'Australian Bear Creations' magazine just before Christmas, only to discover my very first fully jointed elephant 'Delilah' had been featured in the 'African Safari' article! My first ever non-teddy bear design to be published!
'Delilah' featured in Australian Bear Creations Vol 15 No 5
Delilah was my first attempt at a 16" ellie and I was so pleased with her when I finished her. She found a lovely new home in the US last autumn and since then, you may recall I made 'Starlight', my second jointed elephant, created as part of my 'Magical Mayhem' 2009 collection.
I have no idea if Starlight could be the kind of creation to catch the eye of a competition judge or two, but as we are now entering the international bear crafting competition season once more, I thought I'd offer this dear little elephant up for scrutiny in the 'friends' category ... so please, keep your fingers crossed for us!
