I was supposed to bring this as part of a baby shower gift...happening the day after I took this picture. From the advanced state in which it is clearly in, needless to say, it didn't get finished in time.

I ended up working on it only occasionally, and then finished it in time for a trip out West in late June, where my friend lives. Of course, being me, I did the final touches at about midnight the night before seeing her!

Almost done!

Ahhhh, that's better.

This is Jacob's Elefante. I love him so much, I want to make 17 more. But I'll probably stick to 2 or 3 for now.
