No idea why, but I have been wanting to make a Sock Monkey for a while. I just needed to find the right pair of socks, with a coloured heel. DH bought some socks,, and there was a pink pair,, 'I am not wearing pink socks' says he,,, 'I'll have them' says I.
Meet Bandit,,,
I called him Bandit,, cos he looks like one!!!

Kerstin had a giveaway recently,, and I was the lucky winner.
I am going to make a start on the pattern at the top of the picture soon. It will be my hand sewing project, that I can do whenever. I have enough fabric in my 5" charm scrap box to do this,, the pattern calls for 8" squares, but I like to be different.

Briony was very kind to send me some tatting bits,,
 I will be putting them on some crazy patches,, eventually! They are really lovely,,,, yet another craft for me to try!!!

Remember these blocks,,,,,

Well,, I decided to add a little more 'crazy' to them,,,,

Beer,, one of my favourite places,,,

So peaceful and quiet. This time we went for a walk to see the Quarry caves. No pictures,, it was too dark.
I didn't even know they existed. Click here to have a look at their web site.
