Hi everyone, how are you all?
I have just had my first quilting retreat this past weekend, and what a weekend it was! I'll be writing a post on what we got up too soon!
But before that, last week saw the end of our season of soft toys in class!
Are you ready for cuteness overload (and a little education)?
Collective nouns for foxes: Leash, Skulk, Earth, Lead, Troop
(did you spot the giraffe?)
Collective nouns for elephants: herd or memory
Collective nouns for penguins: waddle, rookery, colony, huddle and raft (when in water)
Aren't they adorable!
Half way through the block I demo-ed how to make sock monkeys using the free pattern by Craft Passion (read more here).
And in no time at all, a troop of monkeys started to appear!
These monkeys are so tactile and soft, and a few have already had some serious play time with enthusiastic grandchildren!
Well done to all my toy makers this term! There are some seriously satisfied children (& adults) out there now!
