Stomping around

 Hi there friends!  Today is the first day of the Stomping Ground sew along Pat Sloan is hosting.  The pattern is by Wendy Sheppard and you can find it on etsy here.

It's a darling  pattern, and the etsy listing shows several different color variations for it.  I thought it was super cute.  Pat asked me to sew along and I said I'd make an elephant or two to get the word out.  Not that Pat needs me to get the word out, but she knew I needed some encouragement to get back to my sewing machine.  But then I had what I though was an clever idea.  Why not make some Circus Animal elephant blocks.  I crack myself up sometimes.

Do you have these pink and white sprinkled cookies where you are?  Mother's is a local brand here in the bay area.  (and those Mother's English Tea Cookies are wonderful.)   Admittedly I hadn't had a circus animal cookie in years and OMG THEY'RE SWEET.

I had grand dreams of making a stop action IG post like so many people do, with cookies marching across the screen to the tune of baby elephant walk, but like a lot of ideas like that,  well they turn into something more like this. It's winter here and the lighting looks like I am posting from a dark castle where I am being held hostage by an evil Quilt Queen.  Or possibly a witch.  Who knows.  Does it even matter? The blocks are cute and happy, take my word for it! 

I hope you had a nice holiday and have a couple of days to relax.  Hope you are well friends. xop

Great idea Pam! They're adorable! Think you can stop at 2? You might have found the thing to get your quilting mojo back.

Your elephants are the cutest! Love the fabrics you chose. No, no cookies like these around here, but who knows, maybe I just haven't come across them yet :). I've chosen my fabrics for this quilt - and hope to cut and sew this soon. Love this pattern by Wendy.

My sons and I used to get the circus cookies as a treat. They are very sweet.
You caught their style perfectly with your blocks!

Love your elephants! I am wanting to start on mine. I can't decide if I want to go totally scrappy for the backgrounds or not. I want to make it for Project Linus in rainbow colors. Just have to get one or two cut out and start! They really are the cutest things. Can't wait to make some myself. K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com
