They belong to this head…er…body.

On our way to Louise!

On our way to Louise!

I finally finished the monster I was making for my friend Louise! She wasn’t at Loving Threads this past Saturday because she was back in the hospital for an unrelated reason. She just hates missing our group meetings. So, Wednesday, my bff (and co-facilitator of our group) went over to visit Louise and bring her my monster. I don’t have a picture of her with Irvina (my name for the monster), but she declared it cute and gave it quite a squeeze. 🙂  Irvina, or whatever her name is now, is sitting in Louise’s living room, hopefully putting a smile on her face.
