End of August 2011, made granddaughter a sock monkey, she wanted another for her best friend Kelsie, then another for Kelsie's younger sister Chelsea. All three girls received their monkeys at the end of August, then requested clothes and a quilt. Here it is mid September all the requested clothes and quilts are ready for the girls to pick up this weekend. I hope they will be pleased - Nanna had no patterns and utilized fabrics from stash. Here are the party dresses, party jackets, summer blouses, pyjamas, sweaters, fleece jackets and pants - and all three quilts - meantime a Horned Owl has been stocking our teacup poodle, along with all the other pets in the RV Park - there are 2 skreeching Owls and 2 Horned Owls - we always have to be on guard - stressful vacation

mmm, you just gave me a very good idea! I have the right stuff to make another sock monkey. I made a nice one for my grandson a few years ago. I love all you extra clothes. I have a little 3 yr old girl that visits with her mom now and then. I love the owl, we have them coming in at dusk by our big window. Awesome to watch.

Love the quilts too!
