What are you most proud of? We made it through the Harvest Festival on Saturday - intact. This little monkey was hugged by many children, grabbed and kicked by a few, too. I was pleased that when one child hugged him, I could get one hand to pat the child and I could move the head, making him really come alive. I will have more photos up soon. He wanted portraits this time around.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Unless you are totally insane or a former kindergarten teacher who can't get enough little kid fixes, don't start it. I am still working on it. I will never sell this puppet, partly because I don't make them to sell, but also because I have probably put at least 100 hours into making him..... and I have more work to do!!
