Monkey business! and a splash of colour

It's time for a new challenge at As You Like It Challenge

The sponsor of this challenge is

Wild Orchid Crafts

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using
your Favourite Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

My favorite colour combinations hmmmm this is a another hard challenge
because it depend on what I am making and for whom?
My favourite colour is blue and I love blue and grey together
so I have made 2 crochet monkeys for my great nephews.... and in this case its my favorite combo for boy monkeys :)

The reason they have really long arms and short legs because

they are curtain hold back monkeys for their bedroom!
Crafty Gals Corner-#90 Critters! hopefully these critters are ok :)
Craft-Dee BowZ - Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow - Bow Tie does that count?
Critters & Creatures Always Anything Goes with a Critter/Creature - Hope crochet is ok?

and a lovely little splash of colour from my garden.

These are seed pods from Iris's  

This is also new but I have forgotten the name, Doh!

This one is new to my garden, its like a red hot poker but its called a popsicle it's
a 3rd of the size of a normal red hot poker and a lovely blush colour as you can see.. 

I have some more to share but I will keep those for another day :)

Happy crafting xx


  1. I love those monkeys, what a great idea for curtain tie backs too. Fab pics of your garden. Your apples look much bigger than ours are, but I think ours never get very big, although they make up for it in number! xx

  2. I absolutely love those litte guys. Lovely photos too. Elaine
