Sock Monkey

So I managed to get to the Craft and Quilt Fair in Sydney yesterday (was it yesterday, my weekend is a blur). THe kids were off at the Powerhouse Museum with their Daddy, so I had a good 2 hours to roam). I was surprised that I could have done with another half hour or so. Some of the work in the quilts on display were absolutely amazing...... some of those women noted how long they were working on them for...... 4 years!!! But truly amazing.

The only thing that disappoints me is that the quilting styles were still very traditional. I think they need a bit of young blood in there. Not that I don't appreciate the work that goes in to ANY quilt.

Anyway, while I was there I managed to spend some $$, not too much though. I picked up a kit to make 2 sock monkeys. One is almost complete (needs a pompom for his hat), but he had his photo taken anyway. I think he might need some pants too......
