I love making my sock monkeys but I like to be a bit creative. Continue reading “Making Sock Monkeys”
To Day was Rocks birthday . Always best to start the day with a cup of coffee before the day ahead .
As I explained earlier rock was one of my first batch of monkeys when I first started making them as a business . I had made others but you just know when your getting it right !
Had a good day decided to take him with me today . Monday’s shopping day so this morning we went to tesco . He was very good had an attraction to all things yellow for some reason as you can see in the pictures .
I got some funny looks . Trying to take pictures of my mischievous monkey climbing on the cornflakes haha . We called in the cafe for a bite to eat as it was lunch time . Time for a scone and a pot of tea he’s a very hungry monkey .
Finished our shopping bought lots of cakes for rocks birthday party!
When I got home me and hubby had a bit of gardening to do . I have an apple tree and why hubby cut the grass I collected the apples from the tree with rock .
Filled a bucket full of apples but still lots more. If I don’t collect them they will fall on floor and rot and go to waist Perhaps make apple pie . Rock wasn’t very helpful he was to excited about the party ! Or was that me .
all got a bit crazy after that but we all had a great time !
So Happy birthday rock and hope there will be many more .
thankyou for reading it’s true I never grew up all just a bit of fun .
extra rocks now three meaning I have been making sock monkeys for over three years 😊
Two years ago on the 12 th September we visited Blackpool I had just finished a rainbow monkey I made a set of them and went on to make many more ! I decided that this was the start of me making them to sell as part of my business all though I had made a few as hobby and sold an odd few . I had fell in love with my rainbow monkeys love colour . I decided I would keep one and just finished in time for a trip to Blackpool with two of my daughters and hubby it was a lovely day my youngest daughter was exspecting at the time but we managed to stay and watch the fire work display . Took lots of fab pictures of my monkey calling him rock after the Blackpool rock and also to be my rock and inspiration .
This year he will be two and I am still making my monkeys and I still have Rock. To celebrate we went back to Blackpool it was sunny but a cold wind. My daughter has now had my little grandson Joe and he loves my monkeys. We had a lovely day made a lovely change. I am glad I kept my monkey they have changed a bit but he’s still my favourite.
