I had a minor mishap in my shop about 2 weeks ago now that pretty much stopped me from getting to my shop for a few days. I had already started on this elephant, he was already pretty much done when this happened. Now I don’t know about anyone else but when I am in the middle of a project and something comes up to take me away from it, it seems as though I have to actually try to get in the same mind set I was when I started. In other words I am not just rolling along. My ideas aren’t fresh and it seems as if it takes forever to get back to that place. Does that happen to anyone else?So anyhow that’s why I am calling this I can’t believe I finally got it done. This is a stained glass pattern, not an intarsia pattern. The elephant is out of pine, What I was trying for was a harvest moon and it is made out of Lace wood. The leaves are green poplar and the tree is made out of an apricot tree my father had my husband prune for him. This wood is gorgeous!!! I only wish it had been a bigger tree as we did not get a whole lot out of it. I am looking forward to getting back in my shop. Where I live, for awhile there it was sooo cold i just couldn’t do it. Thanks to everyone for letting me share. Peace!!! I had this frame. I did not make it. Allison
