I've been working on a special project for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, Paige - a sock monkey. I had made one for her older sister Jenna (6) a few years ago and I wanted her little sister to have one too. I've been working on it over the week and showing progress photos, but this monkey is done! The last thing I made is the little flared skirt. So, I took the monkey and our kid's childhood chair out on the deck in the RAIN for a photo session.
The girls and our daughter Amy are coming for a visit tomorrow and I'll give Paige her new friend. When I showed it to her last Thursday she hugged it and said.. "I want to SLEEP with it!". How cute is that? Jenna sleeps with hers every night. I sewed the flannel heart on the monkey's chest and I tell the girls that the heart means that I love them and to remember that each time they look at it. I have a feeling I'd better make Jenna a skirt too out of the yarn I made her hat and scarf out of. :-)
Say, my Give-Away of a pair of sterling silver earrings ends tomorrow, the girls are going to do the drawing.. have you left a comment on that post? The one below the one below this one.
