More Animals Have Arrived for Elephant Parade

More animals have arrived for the Elephant Parade.  First a lovely brown elephant has arrived to take care of her babies.


Next up is a Block Lotto bird.  I've been seeing these whimsical birds on the Blogosphere since April 2013 and kept thinking I should make them.  Now I did!


Last and certainly not least, is a Zany ZebraZ, at half the size as in Lorna's pattern. Since making those teeny-tiny Irish chain pieces, I could handle the teeny tiny pieces on this zebra. I made the neck simpler but otherwise followed the directions exactly.  I might have to get a Sharpie to define the neck a bit more.


Here they are all together.


Next up, I am going to work on people.  I am thinking of a drummer. Can't have a parade without music. I might add a fox too, but I haven't decided on that yet.
