Flock of monkeys?
Here's my journal quilt for the week - as I said yesterday, there are parallels to the arch, but it's not the same - partly because of the difference in size and shape - and partly because some of the things I used on the arch, I ran out of. And one or two things here, I forgot I had, or I might have used them yesterday (like the red silk leaves). The large green felt flower came to me from Karol-Ann a while back - I think her mother or mother-in-law made it, actually...
That's all I had time for today, as we had a busy day - a visit to the farmer's market, a local primary school's summer fair, an open day in the park. The school fair had a craft room - Alex made a paper windmill - and look who I saw lurking in the window in the craft room - yes, that's right, a whole flock of sock monkeys (do they flock?). And one came home with us - sort of. Olivia wanted to make her own, so we have a sock-monkey kit in a bag. Perhaps tomorrow we'll turn it into a proper sock monkey. It's going to be a very bright and stripey sock monkey.
And lookie what was waiting for me in the post when I came back from the Farmer's Market this morning! This is my mini quilt swap from Lucy Locket's mini swap - isn't it lovely lovely? Yes, it is. A big "thanks you" (as Alex would say) to Lucy.
