Saturday Morning

So I came into the store this morning and we had forgotten to empty the coffee pot and put the filter in the compost pail. Well the filter was just begging to be made into something it had dried so beautifully. So I made a boutineer. AM starting to suspect that I have a thing for garbage created from coffee.
-Meet Betty The Yeti. She is the start of a monthly challenge to create a limited series of monsters every month. Probably going to do editions of 6 and try to keep the cost between $15-$20. This one was inspired by a sweater I picked up at a thrift store and went 'Cool it's a Yeti Sweater' - remember the sweater in the movie "About A Boy'. Also I had just received an email from Urban Threads lately with some new monster embroidery patterns. So thus Betty the Yeti was created, shes works at a spaghetti orchard. So now what to do for March, I have some ideas floating about in my mind
