monkeys! now IRL!

great news! my first official nephew arrived on monday… apparently the family has decided to refer to him as “benji”, I’m sure much to his mother’s dismay… but last night I got my very first picture of something I made being used IRL!

monkey see, monkey do, monkey red, monkey blue…

So I’m getting my first real nephew this month. Not just the honorary kind where you get called “auntie” just because, but a real, blood (in-law) nephew. So to commemorate the occasion (and since I really don’t want to be depressed about my own lack of child when it seems like the ENTIRE world is pregnant all at once, I started sewing. I found this adorable sock monkey print at a local fabric store and already had some of the minky red hearts and minky blue dots. What came next was nothing short of a miracle.

I think I managed to finish two bibs, two blankets, and two pacifier clips in two nights, one night of which I was also packing and both of which I was also working on a programming project too!
