Golden Lion Tamarin (Monkey

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a good and safe New Year weekend.

They say these are monkey's and I guess they look like them except for the fur around their face. I really love stitching this piece. It's coming along fairly fast and easy. I'm railroading on it so it slows me down some but I want to make railroading a habit as the stitching is so much neater that way. This piece will be going to our Youth Pastor's baby boy. His wife asked me to do either a zebra, monkey, or elephant and I chose to do these monkey's. I love the animals in this book and will be doing 3 more sometime between now and May.

Last week was fairly quiet, this week will be somewhat busier. I half expect my sister to come into town Tues. & Wed. but not sure.

Last night we had our Contemporary Worship service but the attendance really was down. I think it's because of the Holidays, everyone just wanted a relaxing night home. I only had 3 kids in the children's program so that was nice expecially since I was alone the two that usually work with me were not there either. But the kids are pretty good and we behaved.

Well for some reason I'm tired I'm going to lay down a little. My cat likes to wake me up early and this morning he was successful in getting me up at 6 am. So if I lay down a half hour I'll make it through rest of day. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Railroading does make it go slower, but it looks so much better. Good luck with it. The monkeys are so cute! I've seen that kind before on TV.

They are so cute Barb! I agree with the railroading but your stitching really benefits from it :o)

I hope you had a good rest. I find even laying down for a half hour to an hour makes a big difference.

The tamarins are so cute! Railroading does help those stitches lay nice. Hope you get some good rest.

The monkeys are cute, such a cheeky face on the left.

I've only just started railroading and am amazed at the difference it makes.
