    Ok ladies, it's time for some explaining. First of all, when I received the 'wrong thing', I thought I had ordered a beanie baby monkey, but the monkey I received was about the size of a care bear! My niece loved it, and now owns it...so then she helped me find (and order) a real beanie baby monkey. However, when it came it was larger than I remembered beanie babies to be...so that presented another problem. Anyway, here is the idea (that isn't exactly working out!). The monkey is supposed to be tearing out of the quilt...but it doesn't come across that way. I should have used something besides white for the sashing...and there are multiple other things wrong so I'll be keeping this one and making another kind to swap. Anyway, here is a picture of Sir Monkey (not positioned too well yet) tearing out of the quilt. I also tried a pig....

    Granky, what a darling idea. But, just a suggestion, Your sashing looks like something a monkey would climb and hang from. Maybe you can just revise your initial idea. It's a really great imaginative idea. I love it. It does look like the monkey has decided to hunker down and huddle till the cold weather goes away. It has the sweetest expression on his face. It makes me smile.

    I love pigs. I'm a huge fan of "Wilbur" from Charlotte's Web. But, I don't think this is the right path for him. Just an opinion. If you love it, then leave it.

    granky, You have a great idea going there, keep experimenting.

    Teen, you have polka dots!!!

    EDIT: granky, my brain is working and I think if one monkey hand was in the air with some batting, you may get the look you are going for. Just a suggestion to try.

    Granky, too funny. My sentiments exactly.

    I guess it's a good thing that I have people around me that want my house cleaned more frequently then I do. I am not fussed over a little dust. But, it is by no means filthy. So, I must have reached my happy medium.

    I'm almost done.... This has been a really fun WH to make. It's taking longer because I'm making two at the same time. The better of the two will be swapped.

    Teen, I really like your color pallet. It's so soft and feminine. I've been studying it and pondering the last few days on how you would use it. And, then you threw me through a loop when you posted the fabric with what looks like buttons on a dark background and wonder just how that works with the first set of fabrics. You have peaked my interest. (I love the fabric with the buttons.)

    I finally got to work on my Red and White quilt top today. I did a lot of trimming and ironed open all the seams on all the 1.5 inch HST blocks. And, I was also able to piece one more quilt block. So, 2 down, 7 more to go. I will finally have a little more time to sew tomorrow.

    I had to take my sick Seniors back to the vet this week. They are hanging on for the moment. One of our sick seniors has a tumor that we need to get more info on and the other is reaching the end of his life span and we have chosen not to do anymore surgery's on him. It's heart breaking but, I think we are doing what is in his best interest. And, I also had to take my son's boxer puppy back to the sinus/eye specialist this week. We got good news on her finally. But, she's still on meds 4 x's a day and has to go back next Monday. But the good news is we may not have to do surgery. So, we'll take good news where we can. So, I have been a very busy dog/puppy mom/grandmom this week.

    Oh...when our furbabies are hurting...that is so hard. I have a kitty I adopted over 20 years ago and he's struggling a bit now so I don't anticipate him to last much longer. We get so attached... So sorry about your baby, Judith...but good to hear about the boxer pup...

    I should be be able to reveal the finished WH this week. Working on it a bit at a time...

    All done! A little piecing, applique, and 3D stuffed embellishment. I am still designing another WH for the next round but when I saw this, I had to make it for one of you'all. It's a pattern from Chris Malone called "How does your garden grow", which I bought from Annie's during one of their sales for $1.00. Though I've done 3D before, I've never stuffed the pieces...nor have I ever made covered buttons. I am so doing these techniques again. (12x24) Hope you like it! Oh, how I love black, white and bright!!
