Quilt I made for someone else

I put the embroidered quilt blocks together for a lady I know as a Christmas present for her daughter. The top was done by Christmas and wrapped and given and then it came back to go to the quilter I got it from the quilter on Thursday and put the binding on it and a hanging sleeve. Nice to see it done.

Granddaughter and hubby held it up for me to take a picture of it.

Life has gone to the Monkeys

I had the fabric done up to make 3 humbug bags it is pink background with sock monkey's on it. Well I and another Fayette Guild member have taken on a group of young ladies that are part of different 4 H clubs and formed a sewing club/group.   Now the group has been working on making humbug bags they are zippered bags and the pattern has 3 sizes the Sock Monkey is sitting in a large one and the smaller bag I put on the monkeys arm. 

The Fayette County 4H was having a fund raiser Omelet breakfast and silent basket auction. So I had the bags started and remember I had purchased a kit a few years ago to make a Sock Monkey. Well I got out the kit and put the Sock Monkey together and he settled into the one humbug bag and then I attached a second bag to his arm.  He did come out very cute the winner of the auction was a boy I know here in town and since the Humbug bags are pink background fabric I told him I could and would make him some that were out of blue background fabric with sock monkey's on the fabric so that is going to be my project later this week. I need to stop and get 3 blue zippers to make the bags out of.

Then I will trade him the pink ones for the blue ones I am making.

The sock monkey was such a hit I do believe I am going to try finding socks and making a few more for an auction at the local library later this summer. Plus I had another person ask me about making some to sell.

So how much do you think a sock monkey is worth. They are not hard to do the stuffing is the worst of it. I do have to find the socks and see what they run.
