Monkeying around

Last Friday, at the Brisbane Stitches & Craft show, I booked into Kristie's class to make a sock monkey. I got most of him(?) made at the class, then finished the sewing at home, so here he is.

Kristie is now selling kits to make them, check out her website at Rourke & Henry and you too can make one.
Over the weekend, hubby and I have started to put in some sleeper edging in front of the deck of our carriage (see background of this photo). We are going to plant a camellia hedge in front of it so you don't see the underneath bits. The camellias are the sasanqua variety and are in shades of pink and cream.
Happy Stitching,
Sandi xx

Love the sock monkey, especially the stripes. The little heart on his chest is a nice touch.

He is too cute the idea of Camelia's as a hedge..

What a cheerful little chap (chapette?). Was he easy to make?
The camelias will really set off your carriage.

Oh Sandi - He is great!

Helena and Lynne have been good to you lucky girl.

I so like tat start quilt - could you email me the pattern name etc and I can try to source it here... Maybe I should do a shop at Patchwork angel (wink)

The camp looked like so much fun. I showed the boys your photos - they were impressed.

I hope that heater is doing well in your train. We found them very expensive to run explaining why ours is long gone!
