Well here he is....SOCK MONKEY!!!!!!!!
When I visited Bettina Makel's blog (she does fabulous needle felting) I was so inspired with her tribute to the movie "Harvey" and her version of the Rabbit and sock monkey, I told her I just had to try it..
I took my rovings and needles to my quilt retreat and made this one. Everyone just Loved him and they kept snitching him throughout the week-end and had him sitting amongst their things!! VBG
I LOVE to hand quilt. It does take a lot of time but when you are doing something you love to do then it is time well spent. The best part is while you are enjoying yourself with the needle, thoughts of the next project are running through your head!!
Well I was away at a retreat for the week-end.
I belong to http://www.oxfordquiltersguild.com/
We have 2 retreats a year where up to 45 quilters get to-gether and have a great time. I took some time out to take some pictures. Would have taken more but my battery died in the camera..... Poor planning on my part! I will remember to take extra batteries next time.
I took my "Snowman" quilt to work on. It is queen size hand appliqued and now I am hand quilting it. I have it about 40% done at this point. I always wanted a Xmas/winter quilt and here it is.
Anyway Had a fabulous 3 days with my friends and now to catch up at home!!
