Happy, Busy, Bluebirds ~ working on their nest

Mama looks like she has a giant mustache ~ too funny.


Using nice soft hair that they found after I brushed these guys yesterday.


We like to grow our Labs big???


They’re always cute when they’re sleeping ♥

Must you dig a huge hole and lay in it……

Monkeys in Oz……

I can’t remember when I made this sock monkey for my son, maybe 10 or 12 years ago, he is showing his well loved age a little…  He was actually packed away in the closet, poor little guy.  He inspires me to stitch another, they are fun to make.


I just love the Oz fabric line and thought it was perfect for another raw edge circle quilt, inspired by Allison over at Cluck Cluck Sew.


Monkeys in Oz measures 66”x78”, a nice (big/large) size.


Sock Monkeys on the back and Oz on the front.


It’s a little on the heavy side though, I didn’t cut out behind the circles .  Oh well I have enough scraps around here.


This fabric reminds me of the 70’s??


I feel like  I should make a little outfit for my monkey they are so cute dressed!


Sock Monkeys are just so silly I can’t help but love their sweetness!!


I’m pretty happy with my machine quilting on this one. I like the circles, loops, flowers/butterflies and a wavy stitch my machine made.


I’ll be taking a little blog break, I need to spend some summertime with my family, mow, weed, mulch and grow my gardens ~  all of these chores make me happy,  or I’ll just keep telling myself that………
