Remember a while back, I showed you our basement and the renovations we had started.

Well , we have been busy with the continuation of our reno.

In the empty cubby behind the bar, we added a counter and overhead cupboards. We tiled the counter, walls and part of the ceiling. I had painted a scene on the walls, similar to the painting you see, and on this painting, we are going to add a window frame around the picture, so that it will look like you are looking out the window, across the street.

Hope you stay tuned to see the continuing project.

Finished Sock Monkies

Here are the finished sock monkeys, I couldn't show them before, because they were gifts for Christmas.

I embroidered faces on them, but for older children, you could sew on buttons for eyes.

Wouldn't it be fun to make clothes for them?

The monkey with the long eye lashes, reminds me of my grandson, when he opens his eyes up wide in amazement. I made that one for him.
