New Sock Monkey Fabric and ....

Just a quick post to share some new fabric, that I found at Hobby Lobby today.  As many of you know, I make sock monkeys and matching dolls.  It was hidden behind a post, the lady that cut the material said, they only had it a week and I was the first to buy any, she thought because it was "hidden".  I got 4 yards, so hoping that will last me a while. And even better, it was on sale.

 I had some naked doll bodies waiting to be dressed, so of course, one got a sock monkey apron.  The other two are from the fabric I got from Joann's.  One is off to her new home tomorrow.

Mary and I have a show in Moultrie, Ga. this weekend, so finishing up some things, I have two more heads drying tonight.  I love these guys.  I used the head from a Crows Roost Primitives pattern and made a different hat. Instead of a cloth nose, I used some rusty nails that I had.
 I found these doll skates, when Debbie and I went to the craft show in Orange Park, wasn't sure what to do with them, but they were cute. So I put a mouse in them.  I still need to add a hanger and a letter to Santa and they are done.  I have been looking for baby shoes at the thrift shops and having no luck.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, we may have our first light freeze this weekend, we will be in Georgia, so it will definitely be colder there, looking forward to it. I  Love cold weather when we do a show, it seems to put everyone in a Christmas mood.  Stop by our booth if you are in the area, we are in the first building.  Several other bloggers and some of our friends are exhibiting there this weekend, too.  Happy sewing, Cyndy
