Sock Stuff

Helllllooo, Happy Tuesday :)

I have a wee bit of a "monster process", which is to basically to sew up a bunch of bodies, and if my pattern permits, then I make the arms out of the same sock, sometimes I don't have enough, sometimes I do. Then I make a lovely little pile beside my machine, and once I have a pile, I flip, stuff, and stitch. Stitch em closed, stitch their lips, and stitch their arms on.
It seems to work pretty good. I used to do one at a time, finished the WHOLE monster... but it wasn't really time efficient. The only time when it doesn't work great, is when I get to the stitch part and one of the arms are gone! Which..is happening alot lately. We have found arms everywhere. In the bathroom, back entry, one was even found in the cats water dish (yuck). And..it's because my darling little Finnigan has found a new love for my sewing table, and my monsters.
And..this little monster in particular. This is Ima.. she is a super TINY little monster I made at Christmas this year, belonging to our daughter. Finny goes in to her room every day now, and bites Ima, and off she goes with her. Although Ima doesn't mind the travelling per say.. she doesn't care much for the teeth, and the fact that Finny has nearly ripped her arm off.
I went to perform monster surgery last night, and.. Ima was missing again! Finally I have fixed her, and explained to Finny to stay away, we'll see if it works.
She really is super tiny, a perfect cat size really, she easily packs her in her mouth.. she has a kinda cute obsession with her.. only kinda though.

I kick her off this table 10 time a day, and could very well imagine that while I am here at work, she is not standing guard ..but right up on top, pushing thing over looking for arms to steal!

I luckily found enough parts to finish a dozen or so monsters,
and posted them on my Facebook Page in the adoption album :)

Hope you have a great week!
