The Elephant Patch

My friend Jo has a lovely little shop called the Elephant Patch at 199 Victoria St Ballarat East.

Jo is very clever in all sorts of craft and works with various mediums ,she had just had an exhibition so we saw some beautiful pieces.

Oh my these rabbits were gorgeous and i know my friend Lyn will want to come and see this shop when she is next in Ballarat

This cushion was so cute and the birds,berries and leaves were in wool,Anne bought this pattern and kit,cant wait to see it made up.

Jo's elephants are devine with many having beautiful beads sewn on them,Jo also has the full range of cottage garden threads and lots of other brands of thread including beautiful silk ones,the girls loved this shop so much and they all came away with a bag of goodies.

I love this card that mum made for me it is so sparkly,it glitters like a diamond.

Mum likes making funny cards and this is the one that she made for my hubby,he is santa and thats me sitting on his knee, the family all love seeing the different ones that mum makes each year.

 Life only comes around once.
So do what makes you happy and be around people who make you smile.

cheers shez xx
