TUSAL #8 and two more finishes!

I finished another one of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge starts!  I used the Random Number Generator to choose which of my WIPs to stitch and it came up with this one!  Does anyone remember the Barrel of Monkeys toy?
Monkey Read, Monkey Do - finished!

I finished another monthly square in The Prairie Schooler Spring & Fall booklet.  I will start June next, from the Summer & Winter booklet.  I guess I'll wait until they're all done before I finally decide what to do with them.  I wanted to get a square frame and change the design every month, or make 12 flat ornaments or pillow-type ornaments.  I used Aida fabric with a printed border that I had cut into fourths, so that is why there is a blank corner without the background print.
Spring & Fall (May) finished!

BBQ Queen has her chef's hat now!  I will start on the smiling sun next week.

I decided to take a pic of my ORT jar in the front yard in the grass, just for something different!  Don't forget to check in on Daffycat's blog for your TUSAL blog post, too!
