Day 2 of Elephant Hunting

We went hunting for more elephants in London on Friday. There was a whole herd in Green Park. (Although I have only posted a small selection!)

And plenty more in the surrounding area! By 7.30pm I was up to 77 of the 158 elephants!

I am quite pleased with my progress so far, but I think I will just do a round up of a few elephants everyday - as at time of posting I am up to 87!

I'm going on an elephant hunt...

You may remember Elijah from a previous post. Today he has been out in London making some new friends....

I will warn you know that this is a very picture heavy post!

First of all we went to the V and A on my way to work.....

Then at lunch time we went to High Street Kensington:

Then after work we went to meet some more elephants from the Elephant Parade:

Which brings my total elephants to 28. Which isn't bad for one day! Only 230 to go!

Bits and Pieces

Despite my complete lack of blogging I have actually been quite productive recently!

I have finished jumpers 3 and 4 (so only 8 to go!). I have managed to painstakingly unpick parts of jumpers 5 and 6 that I had messed up, so hopefully they should get finished sometime soon.

I have been sewing - I made another bag like the one in my last post and then went to a Dressmaking weekend at the Papered Parlour in Clapham. It was really good and I am quite proud of the dress that I made:

So maybe it is not that impressive, but I did design and make it in 10 hours!

I am really pleased with how the back turned out -

I have also got some grand plans for future sewing, here is a sneaky peek...

And finally I have been adding buttons to anything and everything - I am particularly pleased with how some nice wooden buttons look on my new shoes.
