This months Zoo Animal is the monkey. Kirsty of Quiet Play said the blocks would get harder over the 9 months. The monkey was very straight forward- until I came to the last pieces- the eyes. These eyes are tiny. The first one was tricky- in fact that one ended in the bin, and the eyes put away for another day. Fore-warned, I then took it more seriously, and took it slowly. The little guy goes together really well once those eyes are mastered. This monkey is definitely not going to Speak any Evil- I think I need to embroider some nostrils and a mouth.
The first photo is the eye. Pictured beside a pin to show it's size
Here he is with his mouth. I did a machine straight stitch for the mouth, which worked out pretty well.
The 8 blocks so far. Just waiting for Cecil the Lion in September and these can be made up into a baby quilt. This last photo is a truer depiction of the colour of the background.
