It seems very apt that the day that I post about having finished my cuddly toy for a child affected by the Natural Disaster in Queensland, that the 6.3 magnitude aftershock in Christchurch has just reminded me first hand of the fear and insecurity that comes from such events.
Even though hubby was working in central Christchurch and his office has broken glass and more damage, I am glad to say that my family are all unhurt. We are slowly getting reports from friends and checking in on everyone to make sure that they are OK. I am watching the news and trying to remind myself that the news often shows the worst case scenarios.
... And here he is... Earl the Elephant.
He's a bit lopsided and wonky, but as hubby said, "he's allowed to be because he's handmade". I'm pretty pleased with him and I just hope that he will make a child very happy. He was made with love.
