My sweetums got me flowers!

My sweetums brought home daffodils for me the other day. I managed to snap a picture (or 20 :-)
He's brought me flowers once before...and I was so darned shocked I forgot to take a picture...I've been pretty sad about that ever since....I'm not much for drying flowers, I don't like how the end up dying twice, once in the vase because I dry them, then again because they get so covered in dust that you eventually have to toss them anyways....I prefer to just enjoy them fully while they're here, and completely beautiful...I like to take a picture, because to me drying just doesn't keep all the beauty....but then again...I'm a weird one sometimes so maybe that's just me.

I finally have a finished object to show. I've been floating around between multiple WIPs one of them is even crochet! Gasp! I know...I haven't felt like crocheting in years...but now I'm crocheting a wee bit, and even taught a friend who I thought might take to that better than knitting....she did...and now she is totally excited about amigurumi! Excellent!
It's this little guy that I finished up. He's been knit for a couple of months, it was just the sewing that I had to finish, honestly it took about 20 minutes this lazy am I!
He's cute though, I'm happy with him. The pattern is available on Ravelry it's called "Flower Power Elephants" I too lazy to link it....but I'm sure you'll find it in a search. It's well written IMO and simple to follow, quick to knit, but a little fiddly.... This guy is pretty tiny (which I wanted) 7 1/2 inched from snout to rump and about 3 1/2 inches tall.
This little guy needs a name, he's currently just called "neon elephant for baby Jared"Jared is the 4 month old baby boy of a friend of mine who I hold dear to my heart (both parents and baby Jared)..hmmmm should that have been "whom I hold" great....I don't even have a good grasp on my own native language...what can ya do!
