You all can be SUPER JEALOUS now!!!!  I received a mermonkey from waterbaby.  Yes, you read that right, a MERMONKEY!!!!  She crocheted his tail, which is removable.  He has legs, so he can go on a walkabout on dry land.  She even made him some board shorts so that he won't be naked when he goes on a walkabout, therefore not incurring an indecent exposure charge  Wink and burning the retnas of small children, and prudish women.  He wears a shell necklace, and is wrapped in sea weed.  She also sent a small wooden box w/shells on it, small shells inside the box, the bottom of the box has a padded bottom w/dolphins.  I also received an awesome mermaid necklace, a Day of the Dead senorita, a box of SpongeBob SquarePants for my big boys boo boo's, a bunch of old world navigation maps, a lovely card, and some fabric.  I got SPOILED!!!  I hope waterbaby loves her monkey as much as I LOVE mine!!!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH waterbaby!!!!  I'm in LOVE!!! Tries not to bump head, as she swoons w/sock mermonkey love!!!

I received!

From our lovely organizer BobbieMay!  She did an awesome little hipster monkey!  I love it so much...he has a place of honour in my studio....be prepared to drool!



The ears have little wires in them to make them bend...sooper cute idea


A jaunty hat!


I love his little jeans....


Some extras!
Buttons and a little game that I remember as a kid


Alas, my mug didn't make it...so sad...it looked sooper cute!



Thank you so much!!!

Can't wait for the next round!

Yes, my package arrived today, riding to the western range with a sock monkey cowboy, who brought along a couple of very cool folk art style pals a floppy-jointed cow with a great face and painted details, and a horse with flowing mane and tail on wooden skewer legs:



Out on the range, our bovine friend tired of walking and decided to ride...though cowpokemonkey wonders just how well this is going to work....



In a post to the sign-up thread, gotgrey said she had cheated on the clothes.  Ta-da -- she used little kid clothes, taking in a seam at each side of the pants waist and cutting a hole for the tail, giving him a little checked shirt, and shortening hems!

gotgrey also sent along a sheet of Paul Franks sock monkey design temporary tattoos.  Thanks for everything, gg!
