monda's monsters

On a rainy, windy, bank holiday weekend where I should have been in the garden planting some of the plants and flowers I bought a couple of weeks ago, I have in fact been testing out my new sewing machine, making giant snacks, visiting family, climbing around a children's indoor play centre, and going monster mad! Here are a few more blockheads that have been made this weekend. The blue one with the spots was half sewn by hand and half by machine. He looks pretty cool, but I really do need to brush up on my machine skills. I love my new (old) bernina, although it does smell like a cross between an old ladies handbag and a dusty old box you've found in the loft (that has been there for the best part of 30 years). That said it seems to be sewing well so I'm pleased. There's still a few hours left in the day for me to crack on with the sewing machine, so that's where I'm off to now.
Another job of the day was to change the bedding. I rolled up the duvet at the end of the bed whilst the bedding was in the washer, and our little baby cat snuck in, and snuggled down.
