Loobylu started I believe in November an online craft project called A Month Of Softies. A slew of people submitted their projects which were elephants. Very cute elephants. I thought the project was for knitters only and since I am currently working on two knitting projects I was a bit too busy. But the project is for people who can sew as well. I don't have a sewing machine yet and even though my mom is an awesome tailor I can't sew too well yet, so to make a long story short I did not participate.
I did purchase a very lovely elephant which Niel and I have named Alistair. After Ali G, whose character's full name is Alistair Leslie Graham. I brought Alistair from the talented Stephanie at Galactic Hero. I think the softies program, Gifty and Secret Santa are all good way to meet people and people can showcase their work.
