Barring some sort of monkey or stuffed animal related phobia, there is no way on earth this lady's reaction had anything to do with the quality of your gift. It's absolutely lovely, and there's not a single wonky detail, no matter what you say. : )


I don't see any wonky, I just see "charm".

Yeah it could be that she's zonked, or it could be that she's kind of a bitch (come on, someone had to say it).  However, that is the cutest thing I have ever seen and that baby is going to looooove it.  I still have handmade things I was given as a kid, they're more special.

I don't know if this sounds kind of trite, but the fact that you did this shows what a kind-hearted person you are.  It hurts when you try to be nice and someone doesn't reciprocate, but in a lot of ways her reaction isn't important.  You've done something good and kind.  Be proud of yourself, its rare that someone is willing to put themselves out there and be willing to be kind.  Its much easier to be ignore the world or be unkind.

OMG that monkey is so darn cute! You are the most thoughtfull neighbor ever!
And about the momma: its probably just the lack of sleep and the amazingness of your gift blew her brains up and she couldnt respond decently  Roll Eyes It happens when super cool craftsters move into the neighborhood.

He is so sweet! I love that you used corduroy -- he looks that much more cuddly.

I think this is right on! It's unfortunate that you got a lukewarm reaction from her, but don't let that slow you down in your crafty good deeds. Smiley

Thank you so much guys. I really harbor no resentment or ill feelings towards the new mom at all. It is really hard being a new mom and not everyone is open to new relationships.
Could be that she was afraid that I would turn into one of "those neighbors", the ones that show up all of the time and you cant shake them. Smiley There are a million reasons. So no biggie.
I just wanted to make sure that the monkey wasn't insanely ugly. I can have some pretty extreme taste at time and also tend to have a really stupid sense of humor.
All of you have more than assured me that my monkey is cool. Smiley hee hee
Thanks to all of you.

No worries grenouille78, giving folks things is the BEST thing in life for me. Making people things and giving gifts is my drug of choice. Thanks for the encouragement though.

Much Peace to all

that is one awesome little monkey. he's sooo cute!
 
Had you met this woman many times before stopping by with these gifts?
 If some person i didn't know  came to my place and gave me stuff i'd be a little weirded out.  I never feel safe where i live though so it;s a trust thing.
 I would love to live in a neighborhood where neighbors are actually neighborly and trustworthy... and stop by with random gifts lol!

I absolutely love this!  I have an 8 month old and I would have been unable to contain my excitement if someone gave me this!  It's a treasure! I just absolutely love it!
