Founded in 1977 The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the most successful
elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the wild.
Located in East Africa, they have helped saved the lives of orphaned elephants
and rhinos through their Orphan Fostering program.
This is my foster Emoli when he was first found alone..

Watch the amazing video of his rescue...
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust embraces all measures that
compliment the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife.
These include anti-poaching and safe guarding the natural
environment at a time when elephants
and other wildlife are threatened on a daily basis.

This is where I left off on Bird Dance
back in April...
has it been that long.
I am finally adding the stems and embellishments to
each berry and there are 96 of them.
I decided to use just one embellishment stitch,
the Fly Stitch on each berry.
The stems are stitched with the Palestrina Knot
using a Razzle embellishment thread.
Razzle threads have a silky hand
and a beautiful natural sheen.
The thread is not always easy to work with,
but definitely worth the effort.

After a recent heavy snow the Bighorn Sheep are back.
A beautiful, healthy Ram.
And he knows it.
Two large Rams in this herd.
Lots of little ones and their moms.
I adore these creatures.
Check out those horns.
They watch out over their herd.
The Rams are in their rut so...
I guess they like to show off...
