Monkey Business BOM – Block #11

Can you believe it’s November already? The weather has been pretty nice so far, some rain, of course, but not too cold yet. I still have one butternut squash outside that isn’t quite ripe yet, so I am hoping for a few more nights without temperatures below freezing. Other than that, there is still some spinach and lettuce growing, and my Brussels sprouts are still a bit undecided. As much success as I had with all the other brassicas this year, for some reason the Brussels sprouts don’t like me. Too bad, because I really like them! Yes, I am am on of those people… if you hate them, don’t worry, it’s genetic. Neither of us can help it.

As for our monkey friends, this month’s block features where you would find me: sitting in the shade with a tropical drink in my hand, enjoying the view and a moment of leisure. As always, the pattern will be available for free download until the end of the month and move to the pattern store when the last block will be published in December. And before you ask, yes, I have something new in the works for next year, but with all my health challenges right now, I can’t predict yet when exactly we will start. Just keep checking back or even better, subscribe to the blog or follow me on social media, so you don’t miss out. The links to my social media profiles can be found at the top of the sidebar.

EDIT: November is over, and the block has moved to the pattern store where it is now available for purchase if you missed the free download.



EDIT: Auch den November Block gibt es nun auf deutsch und mit metrischen Maßen im Pattern Store zu kaufen..

    This is such a cute monkey. Thank you. The only way I like Brussels Sprouts is roasted. I could make a meal of them like that.

      Have you ever tried the “Ultimate Brussels Sprouts” recipe? I think it’s a Food Network recipe. Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon, dark ale, maple syrup and breadcrumbs. Delicious! My husband doesn’t share my love of Brussels sprouts in any form but that’s a dish he can get behind.

    Thank you for the pattern. This is my favorite so far, laid back in a comfy chair with a cold drink with the fan on high in the summer.

    Thank you. This is adorable. Perfect for the last days of summer here.
