Monkeys on Monday....

The Monkey's a little late today because I was too, TOO embarassed to post what I had accomplished as of this morning- nada, nothing, not one additional brush stroke on this canvas....Monkey in the Middle is a Monkey ON MY BACK this week....
But it's amazing what a bit of public shame can do to motivate. I got crackin' this afternoon and this is my progress.....
About 80% done...now I am working on the edges of the canvas. Got something special planned there, but it's a suprise...can't tell just yet....

Would love some feedback....be honest....is the sun scary? Creepy?

I rather like him but my teenage daughter says he creeps her out....

I'm definitely NOT going for creepy because this is supposed to be a baby gift, so I really need to know...would hate to scare baby fresh out of womb or give a toddler nightmares a few years down the path....

So hit me with your best shot- the good, the bad, the ugly. I can take it....

Even if Mr. Sun's middle name is Scary Spice, I think the li'l bunnies are A-OK on the creepy scale...don't you?

As for that other project I have been posting pictures of the past few weeks, I just didn't get enough done to even share.....maybe we'll save that for next week....

So, how's your monkey doing this week?

Oh Steph, I don't think the sun is scary at all. I think he is cute and just right for a baby's room.
The bunnies with their little bunny butts showing are adorable.
Great work.

I love the bunnies,but i'm kind of with your daughter, maybe if you left the face off the sun, or put both of his eyes on the same side somehow. Otherwise very cute. :)

I don't think the sun looks scary- I think it looks great!

Steph said...

Thank you Tonya! I don't either but Ican see where people might think he's a little creepy....oh well...did the best I could and for better or worse, he's a pattern now....

Thanks for your input Anonymous...we all have different opinions and I like to hear them all....

Steph said...

Thanks Debra....Well, it's going to baby....Mom can decide if it's creepy or not (and act accordingly)....regardless, it's a pattern now...

Nice work there, Ms. Steph! The colors are perfect and I'm sure Mom & Babe will love it. Getting something handmade is just so extra special, right??

BTW, need a way to send out the quilt...it's ready to go!
