Sock Monkey!!!! And Some Finishing Stash!

In the last little while my Mum has taken up a new little hobby between quilting and beading.  She has started making sock monkeys!  She's made quite a few, but this is the first one that's made it over to my house.  I suspect most of them are at my brother's and that he's got quite a family of sock monkeys at his house!  Supposedly my sister had eyes on this one but my Mum wouldn't let her have it!


He needs a name, don't you think?  Any ideas?


The mailman was kind to me today, he brought me a parcel containing these lovely goodies!  Mary Ann sent me these wonderful ornament finishing supplies which will come in handy VERY soon!  I think I need to stitch up something so I can specifically use the super cute gingerbread men fabric!  Mary Ann thank you for your generous gift!

Great finishing supplies and the sock monkey is adorable. I think you should call him Jack. I think all monkeys should be called Jack since Pirates of the Caribbean.
