Oodles of pictures to show....




I've been busy these last few days. Kidney stone flareup, only good thing is that I get to sit and stitch till I fall asleep. This is what I've been able to work on. (Still haven't passed that darn thing yet!)

I found this link from Mary Kathryn's blog, http://www.fatquartershop.com/ I saw the sock monkey material and I just had to have it! I love Sock Monkey! Johnny bought me a kit to make a sock monkey! My niece Katie loves monkeys too, so I'm gonna make her a surprise(can't tell, she does read my blog now and then.

You ought to check out that online shop, I'm gonna go back for more material to make pillows or mini wall hangings for my cross stitch!

Ya'll have a great weekend!

I sure do hope that you are feeling better soon. Enjoy the stitching time though.

I am interested to know what the complete phrase is on piece pictured at the top???

There are so many wonderful fabric designs out there. I have seen this line of Monkey fabric, it is adorable.

Lovely projects, and adorable monkey fabric. Sock monkeys were quite popular when I was younger too. Hope you're feeling better soon and that no more stones turn up to cause trouble.

Don't you love Jane Austen?

I just finished stitching Dearest Friend recently by Brightneedle. Lovely little piece. I mailed it to my best friend last week.

The sock monkey fabric is adorable. Thanks for the link.

I was checking out that link from before too. It's got soooo many lush fabrics. Too steep to ship to here though, because once I got started I'd need a paking crate all to myself, heheheh.

Love the sock monkey fabric!

ARe you feeling better now? Hope so :)
