Just Monkeying around!!

I have been working on this piece for my friend, and thought I should share a photo, since I've not posted here for awhile!!

I love this piece!! I think it is coming along really quickly!! All I have to do is finish stitching his date and weight, and I'll be done. The original pattern for this piece is much larger, but I wanted to just stitch the monkey so that it wouldn't take me forever to finish. Lord knows I already have plenty of large projects on the go right now, I didn't need to add another one to the mix!

Speaking of which, since I've moved I have not really much been stitching at all, except on this piece! I've not picked up "Winnie the Pooh/Tree Branch" or "Howling at the Moon", or "The Abby" or anything!! I have been playing on FB and reading a lot. And unpacking and watching lots of TV (I got season 6 of CSI on DVD) and then of course there's Alyssa to attend to and other life things to do, so stitching has sort of been on the back burner as of late. I just really wanted to try and finish the monkey piece this week, so I can put it in a frame and give it to the recipient this weekend as we are going to be having a housearming bbq with them on Saturday.

We are expecting a large Tropical storm to hit here sometime tomorrow, so I may loose power or the internet for a bit, which may be a good thing...maybe I will actually get some stitching in! Or more reading! We shall see!! Well, I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day!!!

Oh yeah and just because I feel like telling you, this is my 600th post!!! Wow!!

Could you let us know where the monket came from? It "matches" my new grandson's room.
