  1. Hello Scarlett,

    I'm finally getting to the big animals that you have published the video and the pattern - the bear, the monkey, the elephant ... and I'm very happy because as I am unemployed, I'm gaining some material to make these animals,I live in a small town in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil. Once I found your videos and patterns, my life has changed for today according to desire to do something for me, before he walked very sad not see any perspective for my life and I want to thank you very much for everything you've done for me, the internet has this possibility, help people who do not know and who live so far away.

    After successfully doing these 3 large animals, I think they call more attention, I would try to make other and further expand the knowledge I gained through you and was thinking of buying the patterns you have other great beasts as I read on the book safari and believe you have others too. Could you inform me the link from where these recipes can be purchased please? I will see with my family if they could help me please to buy it.

    Thank you once again for everything and help me find a reason to wake up every day in the morning and wait for something good to happen in my life, through my work, thank you!

    Greetings, Gui

    1. Thank you for sharing your story with me, it is always heart warming to hear how this needle work gets them past hardships. As for my animals all of them are here, but just checked and saw that clicking on the images wasn't taking you to the video or blog link, so let me go in an edit, that way you have access to all my animals that show in this post here.
