All Quiet on the Sock Monkey Front

Last night was sock monkey night, but due to circumstances beyond anyones control we were down to two, but we still had a great time. Claire finished her monkey and I finished Sarah's for her, she's not very well so I'm going to deliver it to her tomorrow. We also started our Christmas decorations!

They're mainly made form felt, and are so quick and easy to make, which is nice after the month it's taken to get the Sock Monkey's done. I'm looking forward to doing more next week when hopefully the gang will be back together Pink Ladies stylee.

Whilst I was waiting for the girls to arrive, I got excited about a pattern I'd seen in a sewing book called "Yeah, I made it Myself" and thought I'd start it. I finished it before I went to bed, and here it is!

Isn't it a fab colour? You'll have to excuse my random arm position, I was trying to hold my cardi out of the way. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. It's a little big, and the fabric is a tad scratchy, but it has darts! And a zip! And two rows of pink stitching on the hem (which you can't see).
I do love an A line skirt, it's an "I can do anything you throw at me " kind of skirt. For example, today I have shopped, done the washing and fixed my chicken run in mine. The best bit about it though? It took but one little hour.

Tonight I will be making another.
