Meet Marty the sock Monkey!
Nine members of the Hearts and Hands Quilt Guild went on a four day retreat to a lovely cottage in Parry Sound which is owned by a brother and sister in law of one of our members. This is the second year that we have gone. We had a wonderful time sharing lots of laughs, eating yummy food and getting some serious sewing done! We all took turns taking care of a meal and cleanup and dessert.
Joyce brought along her sock monkey that she knitted. She named him Marty. Isn't he just the cutest monkey? He's keeping an eye on the Scrabble tiles so we don't peek at the other team's letters :-).
I had fun on this retreat (but I AM tired!!) and I hope they'll take me along again ...I hear there might be some friends for me to hang out with too!! Can't wait. Til next time. Maybe I'll try some of this stuff. It smells kinda funny though!!
