Just in case you are collecting ideas for next year's Halloween costumes, here's an adorable sock monkey that uses a thrift store sweater as the main ingredient......
My daughter, Megan, wrote up a great tutorial about how she made Janie's costume here. You might enjoy some of her other creative ideas for "repurposing" as well.
Since there has been a hiccup in my quilt making for the last week or so, I thought I would show you a fun 'I Spy Quilt' made by my friend, Robin. She showed us the quilt during Show and Tell at quilt guild this week. Some of the charms are ones Robin received during the charm exchange with Lollyquiltz readers last spring. I love the clever way Robin arranged the squares by background color.The shading makes a perfect border. I like the striped sashing too. What a fun quilt!
There is a lot to look at on the back too. Some little child is going be thrilled with this colorful quilt.
Because I am not one to let much slow me down, I'm planning to attend a quilting retreat over the weekend. Where there's a will, there's a way, right! Stay tuned for the One Armed Quilter's report on that next week! Welcome to my new readers who found me by way of the Blogger's Quilt Festival. (I'm still looking through all the beautiful entries.) Enjoy your weekend!
