FINALLY A FINISHED SOCK MONKEY QUILT!

As I was pulling this quilt from the machine after sewing on the binding, I was happily trimming threads and noted a snarl on the back.  And it wasn't in one spot but half a row had to be ripped out! I did have a light-bulb moment to trace the stitching with an erasable pen so when I pulled out the thread, I still had a 'trail' to follow !  I loaded the quilt back on the frame, and re-stitched without any problem!

What a relief that with only an hour and a half, 
this was a fixable mistake!
The quilt has been washed and dried...
and very sweet to hug with its minky monkey backing!
