Wonderful Su! The textures are fabulous and the whole design looks great. Fantastic little pouches too.
Thank you Ceri, Julie and Penny - really appreciate your comments and feedback. Saw a documentary on the Australian Ranger trying to support Rangers - and the families of Rangers wounded or killed in the line of duty trying to protect Rhinos and other animals from poachers ("The Thin Green Line") - which makes the 'target' even more poignant to me. Maybe a Contest focusing on the work of Rangers could also be a support sometime in the future.

Gorgeous Su, looks fantastic printed
I like the texture in this design and the style of illustration for the rhino! The zipper pouches look great!
I also see a subtle (and poignant) reference to a target in this lovely design. Fabulous Su!
Hi Jo, nice to meet you and to have you back, I've admired many of your designs for a long time (as you've probably seen)! Thanks so much for your great comment on this design and the collection, very very much appreciated!
Thanks very much Andrea - and for having such a close look! My mother-in-law got one of those pouches for her birthday and was most impressed - makes designs tangible I think!
Really cool and sophisticated design Su, I've been away a while and hadn't seen this collection, love it all :)
Great take on this and the design works perfectly on the pouches! Fab work!
Thanks very much for your generous comment Amy - and to everyone else who faved this!
Gorgeous design, Su! :o)
Re-attaching broken link: I love the way <a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/dakotawest" rel="nofollow"> DakotaWest at etsy</a> made this little pouch using my design: she is a real fabric artist and has made pouches in lots of great designs. Thanks so much for sharing the pics with me Dakota - you made my day!

Re-attaching broken link: I think it's neat how the different colored zippers add a different feeling to each of these little pouches by<a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/dakotawest" rel="nofollow"> DakotaWest at etsy</a>. Thanks again for the pics Dakota, much appreciated!
Re-attaching broken link: Swatch printed on basic combed cotton.
You're so poetic Rhonda! I love your thoughts on this design, especially the shrinking waterhole which means the - usually unsocial - rhinos need to meet to drink. Thank you so much for sharing and your very helpful and motivating words!
Moonlight shining on a shrinking waterhole where rhinos come together to drink is the thought that comes to my mind when I look at this thought-provoking, elegant design,Su!
Thanks so much Tina! My husband always says "target practice" for the dots (waterholes), so blokey... Looks like all the links have broken (grrrr), will try and re-attach later.
I really love the slight differences in the greys and how you initially see the dots (waterholes) and then the rhinos appear! Gorgeous design, I love the whole collection!
Thanks so much Tina - they arrived yesterday and are beautifully made and so nicely presented. Plus I felt so special being Dakota's first "international customer" - now I have some unique gifts to give (that I could never have made myself).
Those pouches look amazing!
Thanks for your lovely comment vicki - especially re the wallpaper!

Love this print Su - really effective on a grand scale too as wallpaper. The texture's wonderful :-)
LOL Sue Ellen! I don't think rhinos go much for friends!

These are still adorable rhinos! Although the nose-horn is a good defensive weapon, it must really get in the way of making friends.
Thanks for your comment Deborah - this was the original title that suddenly popped into my head, and it speaks to me too - I think I'm partial to this design simply because of the title! So hoping it will proof ok but somehow doubt it...
I like the imagery of a "salt-encrusted waterhole."
