So ages ago I tried some kantha.  I had a fabric sample remaining with an elephant printed on it & thought it would be a great thank you card for my friends.  So I stitched & stitched!  The gold outline was a last minute idea & I must say the gold thread was AWFUL to work with!!!!




Thank you Smiley

This is really lovely.  I love the way the stitches radiate from the elephant.  Definitely a nice thank you.
