On a recent trip to Kenya, I photographed a lot of the wildlife on Safari.
Of course there were lots of Giraffes and I just loved capturing their image.
Half way through I thought I would never finish it… I’ve not done a piece like this before, but once I got the eyes and the white down, it came to life. I need another piece of white on his nose and that will be it.
The background fabric is linen, I both it at Ikea once. It’s already bound on the sides and I bought about 20 meters last $1 a meter.
Most of the other fabric is Kaffe Fassett with the exception of the base fabrics for the ears. I’m undecided on the quilting, but I think I will just do a black illustrative line.
I hope to quilt it tomorrow.
