Stitching Snow Days......

The last block in a large quilt, but the stitching will not be finished until all the blocks are sewn together. Must find the blocks and get them finished too.

My latest finished article.......

Bobbin lace, a favourite pastime. This is supposed to be a handkerchief edging, however I don't think it would catch much (snot that is). It will make a superb table centre!

What better way to start blogging again...........

than to share the pink monkey story. Just before Christmas a little girl lost her favourite monkey in a shopping mall. Mum was unable to find a replacement so..............................

I found a pattern by Funky Friends Factory and downloaded the E-pattern...
to sort out arms from legs and tail........

I reduced the pattern to 80% so the pieces were tiny
Now this had no resemblance to anything...........

Wow, born legs first.......


Here we are with stuffing....

Positively a monkey, very pink!

I hope Emi likes it, the post should arrive today.
