Moon pies, daffodils, you name, there's a festival somewhere celebrating just about everything!

Thanks for posting, I got a good chuckle.

It also reminded me of one I saw recently for Easter from our very own Sock Monkey Master, BT Laughing ... www.gaggiftsrus.ecrater.com



And these were just too cute to not show off. The pattern is an original design by Lastade ... www.lastade-designs.ecrater.com

Wonder where my creativity has gone? Oh right. The sock monkies ate it.

It is amazing how popular sock monkeys are. I love them. My grandma made them in the 70's for us kids and people are still making them today.

I had a sock monkey when I was little. My grandma also used to make glove monkeys. Don't ask me how she did it but, she made monkeys out of brown basic work gloves.
