Momma Called the Doctor…

…and the doctor said, “Those monkeys are jumping on the bed? Again?

Yes they are!!!

This is a test run.  It looks good!  I can’t wait to make Joey-Bug his Monkey Quilt!!! Long overdue, since he will be one year old in May.

I had sooooooooooo many frustrating issues with my Pfaff embroidery machine, that I literally gave up on making him one.  And, that made me sad, because all of my grand babies had a monkey quilt except Joey.  BUT, thanks to my sewing sister and her older Bernina, the monkeys are jumping on the bed again!

I have also been working on a mystery quilt with Bonnie Hunter.  It’s called “Easy Street”.  I really like it a lot.  It was fun and went quickly, but it is a monster size.  And, I will have to quilt it.  Yikes!!!  I’m going to have to get another Juki, I fear…maybe a later model??? I don’t know.

Another project that I have actually completed.  🙂

  1. The monkey looks happy that you can embroider again! He looks like he’s jumping for joy. The stocking is adorable. The quilt is so not you…in a good way! (You finished that FAST!) Feels good to step out of our comfort zone occasionally.

    • I really do enjoy making the monkey quilts! Happy dance!!!

      Easy Street colors were well out of my comfort zone. But I did enjoy working with the black on white fabrics. I only wish I had more variety of scraps. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on the “scrap” mystery quilt but being my first mystery quilt, I thought it best to stay w her color choices.

    • Easy Street was not hard but it was a lot of pieces piled up in a bucket until it was time to piece it all together band that process was slightly out of control. lol.

      The embroidered monkey quilt is such a fun favorite for me. It’s actually called “monkey shine”.

      I am enjoying the NY Beauty. They are gorgeous quilts and I have always wanted one. Your NYB is unbelievable!
