This post is all about my sock monkeys!!! I love making sock monkeys and because recently a friend gave me a sewing machine (thanks!!!) I have been making more and more. I don't know why, but making a monkey is a very relaxing activity for me. People seem to like them, which is always nice. I like to give them as gifts--and only my most favorite people have one--but mostly I like seeing them. They are so cute, I love taking pics of them...They are best in large group shots like this:
|Monkeys, monkeys everywhere....|
Of course, I have also made a few traditional monkeys....but they aren't as much fun--except for the second guy from the left--he's got a bit of a drinking problem...:-/

....but I love my monkeys more, of course...I love all the different patterns and colors--and no two monkeys are alike! (which is why I hate selling them!!!) Lately, I've been trying to be good about documenting them, but it's not a big deal so I tend to forget and plus I have other, more pressing deadlines, usually...but here is a small sampling...
I have thought a lot about making little monkey selfie portraits, like these:
My monkeys give me a lot to think about! I have a lot of different ideas for them, so in time you will see my sock monkey--tons of them, everywhere!!!!! So, I thought they deserved to have a little blog post, since they inspire me so much--it's the simple things in life, you know? ;-)
And now, back to Joseph and lands of Canaan...
Thanks for the visit!
