almond biscotti and an elephantine gift

I made this new batch of Almond Biscotti soap last night. It smells divine, and I'm really happy with the colours and embedded soap in the top.

I made this little elephant for a friend's baby who turned one! (I'm a bit late, her birthday was a couple of weeks ago.) The pattern is from
Sock and Glove, which is available at the Yarmouth library, since I adopted it.

Happy Birthday, Ingrid! P's waking up now, so we'll be there soon!

Your Almond soap looks amazing. Almond is one of my favorite scents, along with coconut.

And the elephant is just adorable. I love handmade toys because they seem to be so special.

Sherrie, That is an absolutely fabulous elephant... I never saw a sock elephant before... I always used to make sock monkeys, like my great grand-mother... but this guy is great!!!

Oh I wanna make one .. would I need a pattern?.. or could I just do it from my imagination?... I have a few old socks that mending can never help... They may work...

Thanks for the inspiration!!
