So I got out a piece of elephant skin coloured fabric and some elephant skin coloured thread and some elephant skin coloured crayons and guess what - my elephant muse ran away.
Turns out that was not the quilt for me after all.
So last night I spent watching CSI and stroking fabric and pondering and now I know what I shall be making tonight.
Nothing to do with animals at all.
Maybe a touch of Africa though :)
