Wednesday morning and number 83 has just arrived. This was followed in the afternoon by 84 and 85 and in the evening by number 86.
This hippo is from Eileen Roberts who has been struggling to get him out of her computer and into mine. Thanks to her son in law, Stephen, her hippo has now arrived. Thanks for persisting with getting him here, Eileen. He was well worth the struggle and you have also learnt lots of new computer skills too.
"I finally finished the hippo, although you wouldn't say it was one! Had some problems with it, but Riet told me to get on with it, and not to stop so near the end. I am sending you the picture, so you can see I did try! I did enjoy the project!"
Well done, Winnie. I love the colours of your hippo (and it DOES look like a hippo to me).
Dani the geek's hippo is now on her web site here.
Dani said that she'll blog it soon, but that I could have it first! She also said it was made with recycled string and that she had a heck of a time finishing the nose and changing strings at the same time!
"Since I live in Memphis, TN my hippo has been submerged in the Mississippi River for several days and has developed a case of the algae, hence his greenness. Lots of fun with the TIAS. " Thanks Anna Jean - he's great.
"Petunia the Purple Potamus said she had a date with a gentleman hippopotamus this evening. I convinced her that a tiny bit of pressing with the steam iron would make her feel fresh and pretty, but when the first bit of steam hit her tail, she went screaming out of here. If she runs your way, grab her!" I caught her, Stephanie, and she's now being very well behaved.
They look as if they're talking to each other!!!!
"I actually finished them on the last day as I was like a small child with a new toy and I could not put it down. (yes I did two one for me and one for you!!!!!!!!!!!
Goodness knows what I was thinking I forgot I could send it by email !!!!!!!!!!!!!! put it down to age!!!!!!!!"
