Monkey Business.

Posted on | March 8, 2016 | 15 Comments

There is not  lot of quilting happening here – probably due to the hot and humid weather we are having late into the season.

But I have been working with some smaller items.

The first finish is a table runner from Bird Brain Designs made in wool felt.

It is quite long and will easily suit  a dining table or sideboard.

Yes, I did spot the pin well after the photo was taken.

And the monkey reference in the title refers to these little guys.  I have quite a few friends who are about to become grandmothers, so these are ready for when the babies arrive.

They are a Twins knitting pattern.

We have a long weekend coming up and it has been forecast that we will get a change and finally start to experience some Autumn weather. Hope so.

Regardless of the weather, I hope your week is going well.

Cheers, Karen
