I put adult themed on my list....I love him so much.

Here's my extras....

Roller Derby stickers, Foamy the Squirrel stickers, Zombie Hello Kitty stickers and a skating beaver sticker.  The black and white thing is a cat toy which 2 of my 4 cats love. 3 Packages of the sugar-free drink crystals you put in a bottle of water...those are much needed cuz I work at7&-11 and get free pop and slurpees at work. I've been trying to cut down and drink water instead.

Lastly is come Cabbie love from one collector to another....

A carrier, a posable and a kewl outfit I don't have in those colors.

Thank you so much GrindHouseHussy19......I love Rico and he's going to fit in here just fine.....

And I'm missing 3 that sit in different rooms. The Mario one in my son's room, a witch one in my kitchen and a mermaid that's in my bathroom.

wow! all the monkeys are great!

speaking of which, i received from mini_mum today, who chose my regency theme! meet my beautiful new monkey! she is made out of the softest loveliest socks imaginable and is looking very proper with her empire waist dress and reticule.

after her trans-atlantic journey, she paused to examine the wild grandeur of scenery in california:

she was feeling a bit homesick at first, but i think the BBC shelf cheered her up. although i fear she's already being changed by america, as she's showing a shocking amount of ankle!

oh well, at least her hair is still nice & tidy!

thanks mini_mum! she's beautiful.. i just need to name her now.. any suggestions?
oh, i also received a matching bag for me!

Crafting along nicely :)

SO glad you like her!

I had 'fun' doing her!! Smiley at least 3 attempts at her hair (she was almost sent bald  Roll Eyes lqtm!)!

How about 'Charlotte' as a name?

That last one looks so soft and fuzzy. She is cute, but I think those socks make her look more like a sheep than a monkey. A sheep with a really long tail. I like Betsy as a name for her, if you must.

yeah, i don't usually name things, but i feel like she wants one.

while both fine suggestions, betsy is too close to my real name and charlotte is my niece's.. maybe it will come to me if i just think about it a bit.

How was the yarn braid attached?  Any suggestions for how you did that?  Great pretty fuzzy monkey.

noelle asked much the same thing, so I'll be lazy and just copy the reply I sent to her so you all can read it! Just hope it makes sense!

"OMG - that was a nightmare!!!

After a lot of trial and error (a LOT of error!) I ended up cutting lenghts of yarn and then threading them through the head from side to side, making sure that they went all the way around as well, I gethered it all up in the middle and plaited it then tucked the ends up underneath to make a sort of 'bun' then used more of the yarn to sew it all into place. The front bit is lenghts laid across and I used normal sewing thread to catch it down and create a kind of 'parting' effect, then tucked those round and underneath the bun and again sewed it into place.
Wish I'd but a bit more at the front actually.

Hope you can understand that! I wanted to give her a few ringlets down the sides, but couldn't work out how to make them. Still - I'll just mull on that one - inspiration may strike at some point!"
