The New Pink

First off, I want to apologize for not reading your blogs as much as usual. I feel really bad, I'm just a little busy. Sorry! I'd really like to be blogging more too, but the sewing machine is calling me.
Anyway, I thought I'd show you a new color I got for the monkeys. It's pink! I seem to be drawn to pink lately so I couldn't resist this yarn.

Isn't it a lovely, soft color? I'm in love. I made this pencil cup the other night and thought it would be a good time to try the new pink. I love it! This monkey's called Stacey and she was already adopted.

Now I'm going to list Miss Jennifer, she's a Nano Monkey. I got a chance to use a fancy button on her hat, she's a cutie, eh? I got some pretty new yellow too and lots of beige for monkey mouths. I do have 80 or so to make for the wedding. Don't worry, they're in the works, hehe.

Oh! And I finally started to destash. So far I've listed one pattern and some really cute monkey flannel in my iSew shop. More to come.

Now I'm off to make a pink flower girl dress. Wish me luck, I think it can be done today, uh, maybe by Monday. Have a great weekend!

don't worry about the blog reading (at least not mine) - I do the same thing from time to time when I get busy. And you have a genuine reason too - just enjoy getting ready for your wedding and enjoy all your pink!

Good Luck! I have (had) a little girl ya know--and attempted a few of those little frilly numbers that she loved so much! Bad. I am terrible at following patterns. I'm sure yours will be wonderful!

80 monkies for the wedding?! OMGosh girl--you are beyond ambitious! You still manage to get more blogs posted than most people.

Love the soft pink monkey hats--you need to stop--how many monkeys does one person need to have before it is considered an obsession? I'm thinking I may need a monkey pencil cup--cuz' I've gotten attached to Hannah smiling at me while I'm on the comp and very soon she will be back to work holding my cappuchinos--and I will miss her smiling face sitting on my shelf! lol

Smiles, Karen
