Monkey, Long Pile, Mexico Oh MY!!!

LOL!!!!
Let's see first off, I finished my monkey and I needle felted a little banana for him. He doesn't have a name yet, I'm still thinking.... He is similar to the monkey I made for my Unlce. I wanted to try and design some different feet. I think they turned out not so bad... I think I'm going to try another way and see how I like them.......
I really LOVE making these guys!!!


I have listed a bunch of long pile in my Etsy store. I have soooo much fabric I need to sell some...LOL I may do some give aways in the next couple of months. I'm still going through my stash, I literally get buried in it when I'm trying to organize it. Then the cat and dog have to help....HAHAHA...it gets very interesting.

AHHHHHH Mexico!! I may be going to Mexico in late Feb or early March. We are hoping for Feb 20, going to Huatulco. Looks amazing!!! If everything works out we would be staying at a resort called Las Brisas. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Well that's enough yakking...hope everyone is doing well. Hey just a couple more days until the weekend!!!! WooHoo!!!!

A Quite Monday Night

Don't you hate it when you sit down and get all prepared to do some sewing and you are out of a KEY ingredient!! Bugger!!!!!! I wanted to finish the face on my monkey and I am all out of dental floss (used for attaching the eyes not for flossing...heehee) I could have sworn a had a new one stashed away somewhere...hmmm...I bet I used that one already..LOL.....I'm going to have to go routing around in my never ending supplies.

Well, instead I finished sewing all his parts together and finished sewing the head of a bigger bear. A new design I'm working on..trying to create a longer snout.

Today I also received some beautiful mohair that I ordered from Intercal. I've never bought from them before but I am "For Sure" buying from them again! The fabric is so fantastic and the customer service was great!! I would recommend to anyone who's looking for great mohair and service!!!

Well I think I will put away the sewing and have a nice cup of tea, admire my new fabrics and start dreaming of the critters I will create!!

Have a great night!

Still Here

Yes I am still here....I didn't realize it's been that long since I last posted...What have I been doing???? Good question! Not to much. Just getting back into the work groove. I always feel a little down after Christmas. I've been working on a few critters to place in my Etsy's shop but it has been slow going...LOL....Hopefully I will get at least one done this weekend! That is my goal.

Today I think I'm going to go to some thrift stores with Mom. See if we can find some treasures. I haven't gone in a long time and we are having some really beautiful weather...so today would be a perfect day to go out and about.

Wish me luck in finding that ultimate treasure!!!

Happy Weekend!

More pics

First pic is of the cat I made my Aunt for Christmas...
Her name is "Cleocatra"...


Next are a couple of pics of the elephant I gave to Melanie..
This is"Blossom"


Now this is My dragon I got from Melanie. I am borrowing her pic cause I can't seem to get a nice picture. BUT I have to say that this pic does NOT do justice to this dragon. I will try again tomorrow to try to capture the beauty of this creation!

Enjoy! I know I am!!!
