Gettin Crafty


Had a lovely weekend full of craft, stormy weather and fun. I was so inspired by A Month of Softies over at Loobylu (http://www.loobylu.com/)that I made a sock monkey! It really works and isn't too tricky...even managed a dress for Miss Monkey, too.

Had heaps of work related reading to get done but couldn't stop messing about with felt, needles and thread...so was in bed til very late speed reading a new book by an author I'm interviewing this morning...hope I don't accidently slip in something about a monkey. Here is a pic of The Owl and The Pussycat by Carly at Moopy and Me. I love them!Thank you, Carly.
