sewfull again

Here they are... part of my finished sewing creations. The rest will be up next week. Had a Coldplay marathon as I sewed. It started with one song but kept on going on the Ipod. Songs I hadn't even played in awhile. Good sewing music.

The second photo shows the backs of the characters. It's kind of like a rough version of patchwork. As my Violet Pantry friends know (and probably everyone else) I am a sloppy, not exact artist so these definitely have my trademark style on them.

These are my classroom sock monkeys. Each has it's own name and personality. The student of the day for each class gets to pick one for sock monkey entertainment. Each monkey has his/her own repertoire of amusements. Yogi's head bop and the twins' dances are the most popular these days. Yes, I could be going off the deep end but it's fun. Last week of school for two weeks. Wish us teachers luck. Toodles.
