Here's Suneala's contribution but she also says
"Had a little difficulty while I was closing the ring with the bead. Is there a better way to close it?" Sunela, you're not the only one to suffer this problem. I will try and explain it in a new page on my 'Tips and Techniques" section of my web site.
Ah, Marty's just dropped in again with this link!!!
The first in this morning is from Utlinde from Germany.
"Hopefully attached file has scan of Sheila the Hippo; apologies for taking so long to send scan, but as soon as she saw the surf report I had great trouble catching up with her."
Lunch over, aged parent sorted, tea drunk with friend and now I'm back with a few more hippos who have come in while I've been out!
"Hippo tsunami.... and another hippo, and another, and another but this time a Dutch/Belgium one! - can you still find a place for him?!"
Of course I can - the more the better!
"One hippo lumbering your way, hope it arrives O.K.!"
Thanks, Margaret. I do like the thread you've used - your hippo looks as if he's got a cheesy grin on his face!!
"Albert, the albino hippo. Thanx so much. He is sooooo cute. It was a challenge, but doing it as a group and seeing how the others were doing really helped. "
Here's an interesting link about hippos - it was in yesterday's Sunday Times.
"Here's my hippo. The colors I chose plus the motifs in the body remind me of a stuffed hippo (named Hippy) that I was very fond of as a kid."
"Gwen said after mastering the SR I was away. I would never have tried something so complicated in one go, it has given me so much confidence."
Nearly bedtime and the last few on this posting.
Just in is this pair from Kristina aka Spinn, in Sweden. This is what she said.
"I don't really know if my animals are hippos, but I had fun!"
This next one is from Mary Jarvis. She says.
"Another hippo for the bloat!". Thanks for the hippo and the other link too.
