Cactus Monday!!!!!!!!! I'm here!!!!!!!

I am finally here for Cactus Monday, Teri! To see other Cactus Monday fun, visit Teri's blog at, Painted Daisies!
My grandson drew this cactus a few days ago, and announced he had made it for me for Cactus Monday! What a sweetheart! It is the cutest cactus I've ever seen! Well, if you saw my previous post, daughter and I have spent last late evening and today making these little felt cuties. The last one to be made tonight (both of us worked on this little monkey)...and he got to swinging in the cactus.

This little monkey is designed to be able to have other monkeys hang in a long chain by each others tails! He turned out to be quite mischievious...the spines in the cactus don't seem to bother him at all, and therefore we have a lot of trouble trying to catch the little rascal!

Happy Cactus Monday to you all!

This makes me think I need an apprentice artist to help me with Cactus Monday. The monkey is cute. HCM.

It's easy to see that talent runs in your family, Julie. The linking monkeys would be great as kids' jewelry. You could make bracelets or necklaces with a little Velcro or some other fastener. With different animal shapes you could have animal charms.

Oh Julie, they are so adorable. Working with felt looks like fun. My Daughter and I bought last year a book on felt project and we were going to make Christmas presents for 2010, well, we just found the book. Maybe this year. Love the little monkey.
