I have been busy sewing the past several days but not quilts. I hate shopping but really need some new clothes. I also thought my mother could use a new fall dress. I went through my patterns and drawers of fabric and came up with a skirt pattern I wanted to use and fabric for a dress for Mother. I had to buy fabric for my skirt. Mother's dress is finished. My skirt has the hem pinned up but not sewn.
Sometime ago I saw adorable sock monkeys on Bumble Bee Bliss blog made out of unusual socks (not the usual sock monkey sock). I bookmarked her directions. She has a great tutorial at
She does not yet have eyes but I love her. I will be on the look out for more socks.
