    Love the hippos, but I drool over that crocheted tablecloth every time you post something using that as a background!!!!

    Beautiful tablecloth. The hippos made me think of a game the kids used to play called "Hungry Hippos", I think it was. They look so happy.

    Those are darling happy hippos!!! Very smile-condusive!! Are the hippos themselves appliqued on and then embellished with embroidery? Wonder if there are applique patterns for them?

    That is just adorable, and nice work too. I also like the crocheted table cover. and it reminds me of the ones like it my dear mother made.
