Monkey Business

First of all, I apologize for not posting in forever.  I didn't have time to get one done before Christmas, and since then I have not been able to upload any pictures. But finally today I got it figured out.  I have several blogs written, just waiting for pictures, so now I can get them posted.  

Here is my little Ally-Kitten all covered in snow.  The girls sure loved the 20" of snow we got right before Christmas.  Myself, not so much, but the girls spend most of their waking moments outside, if it's not too cold!

Allyson, picked out this monkey fabric while at the quilt shop on the first day of school for my oldest daughter, Olivia. There was only a 1/2 yard cut left in the shop, so we had to get creative. It is adorable fabric, so it was easy to be creative with it!

 Allyson was really missing her big sister and felt very left out not getting to go to school herself. So to keep her busy, she and I made this quilt together while Olivia was in school. I had a great time teaching my three-year-old to sew, and it was a great way to keep her mind off of her sister.  

She got a chance to be a big girl for once, and now she has her "monkey quilt" to snuggle up on the couch (or in this case on the floor) on those days that it doesn't get above zero and it's way too cold to go out and play.
