Ruth,
How long did it take you to do these?
How on earth do you find the time with that Mural on your hands as well?

Thank you! They only took about three hours, just a fun little job to help pay the bills.

What fun work! I'd be afraid that they'd drop something on my head if I went through the door, they look so real!

Hi Ruth and Everybody,

So glad to see some new posts in this forum! Love the monkeys, especially the banana-eating one with the "banana slice" over the door... They all look almost human

This is absolutely great ! I just love the little fellows ! They look so real. My favorite place to visit in the St. Louis Zoo when I was growing up was the Ape House...had monkeys as well as chimps. Personaly I really don't know the difference but always had a soft spot for the smaller monkeys. Due to family problems I haven't been to the list for a few weeks and upon viewing this evening I am pleased to find several posts in this forum. Will post as time allows.
Pat: clap:

Wink So Cute !

This one looks like he's gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar (or maybe its the sugar canister?)

Very, very cute !

(And of course -- so well done !) You truly are my hero !

Ruth, you do such wonderful work. I love these little critters, and the texture is great! I have a cousin that would love these. She collects monkeys
