Sock Monkeys!!!


Yesterday, some of the awesome Kiwi Mummy Bloggers in Whangarei, got together to learn how to make Sock Monkeys!!!

Our tutor was the amazing sock monkey making Queen, Leonie, and our hostess was the ever so lovely Jacksta (with her flash new sewing machine).

Of course we started off with hot drinks and delicious food (including the BEST cheesecake I've ever tasted, made by Jackie), the kids hit it off straight away, and then there was nattering and laughing between us girls before we decided we had better make a start on the monkeys!!


Leonie was a fabulous tutor and it was so much fun getting to make my first ever sock monkey. She is going to be doing a sock monkey tutorial soon with a linky for you to join in with your creations.


So, a big thank you to my amazing Whangarei blogging buddies - you are all so precious.  Was really good to hang out with you Leonie, Tracy, Jackie, Becky and Renette.  We also missed you girls who couldn't make it!!

See Leonie, Becky and Jackie's take on the day too.
