Wipocalypse - Update #2

Tuesday, February 7, 2012
I've been trying my hardest to stitch away at the "Baby Monkey Birth Announcement". I want to get it finished and gifted before I start the birth announcement project for my own baby, who's due in a little over a month. 

As you can see, I've made quite a bit of progress on the second sock monkey. Like his partner, he's a time consuming pain in the butt due to constant color changes. I can't wait until he's finished! The rest of the project is mostly words, borders, large blocks of a single color, and random floating bi-color shapes, so that should stitch fairly quickly. The monkey-head safety pins in the upper corners will take a bit of time, but shouldn't be nearly as difficult as another full-bodied monkey.

Just found your blog.

I love the monkey birth sampler, it's very sweet.

Good luck in getting it finished!

I have been looking for this kit forever! It is currently unavailable. I even have an email request to the designer to see if she has any or would be willing to sell me her pattern.
I would love to ask her if I could have her permission to buy your pattern, as it is copyrighted, and if so, do you still have it?
I know this seems silly but my first grandchild is due in a month and my daughter and I have had a sock monkey "thing" for years. Thanks for any help you can give me!
