Memorial Odd Sock Day

Yes today is Memorial Day for all them odd socks that got away!

Odd socks on the line

Its a mystery ? They go into the washing machine and are never seen again. Perhaps there’s a black hole they go in putting my head in the washer 👀 Can’t see anything haha.

The story goes they turn into sock monsters and come and bite your toes at night. May be it’s really because your feet are cold and you can’t find any socks to wear. Perhaps the dogs eaten them ?

Read all about it ! The phantom sock snatchers at large. Police are hunting for him he’s gone into hiding. Last seen in the tumbler drier and acting suspicious. No evidence found looks like he’s sock free.

The sock draw .. That’s it I remember now it’s in here some where. Sure I washed them together or maybe I left it in the basket ? I love them socks. Looking through I found 20 odd socks ? are these the ones I thought was odd last time I had a sort out. The mind boggles.

I like odd socks. Perhaps I can wear them odd pink And blue match. Start a new trend what do you think! Them odd socks won’t go to waist.I will make lovely odd sock monkeys with them 🐵 That’s maybe how they got lost in the first place the monkeys had them. So happy Memorial odd sock day have fun and don’t lose your socks.

Back to it then Sunnyteddy

Back to it then !

I have been unwell and it really crushed my motivation .But feeling better so back to the monkey business 🐵

So much I want to do these things  just get in the way ! Got some lovely orders from my monkey fans. Bit of a sale on my Folksy shop just enter code Mon20 get 20% off . So here we are all going on doesn’t take long to get back into action. Sorry this sale now ended !

I am hoping to sell my monkeys on here.So my blogs and monkeys are all together. I have made hundreds of monkeys now and I think they are the best I can make them. I try to perfect them always turn out a little different. I cut the felt eyes out by hand and the mouths embroidered on . Make it so difficult for my self sometimes with all the hand sewing but it makes my monkeys unique.

Sewing by hand

I bought a sewing machine over a year ago, I think can’t remember when it was ! A Janome before that My monkeys was all hand sewn . This week on Tuesday got back into my stride and the machine kept coming unthreaded and just wouldn’t play nice. I have neglected it for a few weeks so it’s my own fault. Went on my group on Facebook sewing in the uk and some lovely ladies was quick to give me advice on what to do phewwww . Think it needs a good clean been gathering dust, Normally it works quite well. Good job don’t think I can buy a new one at the moment having all this time off 😪 My monkey doodle was trying to help ?

Doodle trying to help

I have decided that my time is precious, must start getting organised even if it means a few hours sewing at a time . Time for cleaning ,cooking, and of corse looking after my grandson Joe. All got to fit into my day! Also have some decorating that needs attention.

I sometimes think My head will burst so many ideas ! I have to write everything down or I forget .. blonde moment haha . So best foot forward and all that !  I will make a go of this if it kills me . My hubby says we are going on holiday this year haven’t been away for a few years so something to look forward to .So best get making them monkeys thanks for reading your welcome to comment any feedback .I promise to Start telling you something interesting soon when I think of it 😊 Julie

Time out is a good thing

Time out is a good thing

Keeping things on track to the point of not being able to get my head round anything. Came to a head last week so time for a break ! Not a good time as I have so much to do . Sewing needles down then,but to be honest my motivation had gone out the window . I love crafting but normally find it difficult to put my work down, can even sew at night if I want to get something done .

So what’s happened to me!! I have been preoccupied with my grandson Joe, love him so much he’s special and grandchildren like my children have always come first in my life. Been ill and really haven’t had any time for me, so decided to take a total break from my business. Have been a bit parttime as late . Sometimes you need time to think and reflect.

We decided to go to our favourite place Chester for a few days, and have a bit of retale therapy. Time for swimming .shopping and just being lazy.

Looking forward to Mother’s Day,With my lovely girls. would like to wish all you mums a special Mother’s Day relax take it easy 😊💕

thanks for reading more tales soon and lots of monkeys I hope x
