Two little monkeys!

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
So Momma called the doctor and the doctor said
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

Two little monkey finger puppets all ready for two little grandsons.  Pattern is 'Sock Monkey Finger Puppet' from HERE.  

- There are some cute Christmas coaster patterns HERE.  

- HERE you can find a great tutorial for making quick pillowcases (great idea for gifts, particularly for children & teens).

- There's a ton of free cross stitch Christmas patterns HERE.  The site isn't in English but for these you won't need to worry.  Be sure to scroll down!

- If you like cats, you will love THESE cute ones!  Free pattern to make your own.

- If you don't have much space to put up your large ironing board, perhaps you'd like to make one of THESE for use with your smaller projects.

Today your quote is from Suze Orman...."No woman can control her destiny if she doesn't give TO herself as much as she gives OF herself"

Did you ever hear Liam Neeson reading that poem? LOL!
Here is a link to the YouTube video - hope it works :)

Very cute monkey finger puppets. I always enjoy your various links. Suze's quote is very important for women. We do tend to do for and give to everyone except ourselves.

Great links Mary Anne! Love the monkeys ..... oh, and the cats .... so sweet! The mini ironing board could be useful when the cutting board/ironing board I'm using wears out .... I think the padding in mine could be foam, and is possibly starting to perish!
