Wot I did on my New Year holiday

I made ellyfumps! 

There are six photos here, but there are only three elephants ... each one has different fabric on either side. 

Love this psychedelic retro fabric I got in Beirut ....

....along with this mercerised cotton I got too

All pinks and blues and tiny florals ....

....make this ellyfump perfect for a little girl

While this one here is going....

to my Syrian friend who's expecting a boy in March
This is practically my last burst of sewing, as my sewing machine gets packed up and shipped home on Saturday this week.

I felt an obssessive need to fit in as much creativity as possible before it disappears from my life for three weeks. Is that an oxymoron? Forced creativity?

I love the fabric inside the ear on the first elephant, so pretty : ) It would make a lovely dress. Is it an Indian cotton?

hehe the word verification for this comment is 'boing', it made me giggle : )

Forced creativity - happens at my place too! Or worse still, the craft itch when your sewing room has been turned into a guest bedroom for a few weeks!

Love those ellifumps!

I love using the word 'Wot'.

The mention of going three weeks without a sewing machine reminds me mine is 11 months overdue for its annual service. But how can I get it serviced in January when I'm having my holiday from business sewing? I have so much personal sewing to do!
