My good, good friend moved far, far away with her man. I am happy for them but sad, so sad too. Before they went she made the strangest request of me.
I started stitching the cyclops eye right away in her fave purples with a touch of lime green.

I couldn't decide what a dancing sock monkey would look like but I knew it had to be as unique as she is. I gave him a package first then the idea for a kilt to cover the monkey junk seemed a natural progression.

It's weird, so much so I am not even going to try to get a proper picture before I package it up to mail off to her.


So weird.
She is going to LOVE it.

I'm so glad the reaction to this is positive, thanks guys Smiley. I packed it into a box & mailed it off shaking my head all the while. It's weird, even for me.
