Another busy day

I started to make a quilt using my friend Lorna's 12 FQ pattern from my Rural Jardin fabric. These are all the blocks made and stacked. Okay, that's enough of that quilt for today... Now what can I do?
Let's look at some old UFOs. Ooh, look at these sock monkey appliques.

They started because of this 5 inch charm pack I bought and loved. I didn't even know what sock monkeys were then!

I put them away in their labelled box, and walked around the house with itchy fingers again. Then I found another box labelled "sock monkey quilt". ??? I thought...
Ooh, it was quite heavy, what's in it? Oh my goodness!! A pack of 36 fat quarters with sock monkeys on them!!

Ooh, this requires some thinking. Next project.

What a mess! It's a partially made circular bag I started 3 years ago.

This is a much nicer view of the UFO. The stripe fabric is on one side, and the black fabric is on the other side. Reversible see???

All it needed was some handles. I made them, and now it's a finished bag.

I wonder if I will actually use it as a bag. It's very nice fabric, maybe I could reclaim it sometime...

Those sock monkey appliques are so cute! I have not seen anything like that before.

You suffer from the same disease I have - QDD - Quilters Distraction Disease. I just wrote about it on my blog a day or two ago! Maybe there's something in the air...

I knew we had a lot in common...I started some sock monkey appliques as well when that stuff first came out (5 or so years ago???). I was going to make them star centers.

I have some of all 3 of those monkey lines "socked" away, waiting for me to come back with time and inspiration. I just love those monkeys!! You are motivating me to get my hands on mine (somewhere in stashland...).

Cute...cute...CUTE! i can't wait to see what you will do with them!
