Okay, so there are no medals given out for amateur sewing accomplishments but having watched the pairs figuring skating competition last night I'm in the medal mood. I'm a realist. If there happened to be a medal competition for amateur sewing, I probably wouldn't win by the judges' standards. But I am celebrating success tonight after much "failure" with my little Molly Monkey. She is not completely finished, so I would probably lose marks for that - maybe a few tenths. (I have no idea what I'm talking about.) As you can see, she is still naked due to a little double fold bias tape drought in my supply box. (I don't have any double fold bias tape, and to be honest, I don't even really know what that is. A quick visit to a craft/hobby store in the near future will take care of that though.) In spite of Molly's nakedness, I'm still excited that I've come this far! I'm already starting on her friend as I wait to get the supplies I need to finish the first one. Two little girls means two little monkeys.
