Title: Horace the Elephant
Post by: **mandie** on March 05, 2008 03:00:26 PM
Hey everyone!  I'm a little nervous about this because it's my first challenge. And also my first time making up my own pattern! WOOHOO!!  ;D  
Horace is representing Jackson, Michigan.  It is the birthplace of the Republican Party.   His name is Horace because a man named Horace bought 160 acres for $2 an acre in 1829 and named it Jacksonopolis.



Here is Horace visiting the historical Michigan Theatre in downtown Jackson.


Here he is on the 11th floor of the building that I work in looking over part of the city.

This is the county building...

And me and my friend Horace...


Thanks everyone.. I seriously had so much fun with this!

Thanks everyone!  My friend from work and I had a lot of fun trying to think of places that Horace needs to visit.

I'll try to write up the pattern later this weekend if you are interested.

I'm going to get some more pics of him around town when I get a chance, my batteries died yesterday.. grrr..

How did you get the pictures to show up if it's your first challenge? It is my first challenge too but I can't get the pics to show up.

hmm, I don't know.  I didn't know that it made a difference how many challenges you have entered?  I know you have to have a certain amount of posts before you can post pictures.  I just put in the image link from Photobucket..
And thanks!  I knew he needed a little something so I tied some scraps of the yarn from his tail around his neck.. haha
