This time the hoard yielded treasure in the form of dear little primates from the past. Here's the sock monkey that I made Lou years ago. He features in my third ever tentative blog post.
And though not made with my own fair hands this guy may be the holder of an even more precious memory. Did Louis reward me with his first smile for his difficult Caesarian birth and the hourly milky snacks around the clock for the first few months after he emerged into the world? Did he heck! This is who was the recipient of my son's first ever cheesy grin!
