Wow! The photo you took of the flower really shows the color well. And yes, I did use some salvaged sari silk yarn. Here's a before picture of the treble clef.
And Ffrogg526's additions to my little circus elephant will be hard to beat.
Isn't it freakin' precious?!? I sent her a photo copy of the vintage elephant pattern so she could see the original umbrella is held in its trunk. I had no idea she would go so far as to add some of the other circus animals in the pattern. Very bright, cheery, and dimensional - just what I wanted.
