Meet "Stella" and "Hank"

Miss Stella, pictured above, was made out of a real sock with buttons for eyes and a crochet bow to accessorize (made her look more feminine).  I recieved the pattern/instructions for this monkey from my buddy Misha, who is actually doing a give-a-way on her blog for a handmade sock monkey, just go HERE!!

Hanky here is almost 100% crochet!  He is grey with yellow on the tips of hands, feet and tail and has two different sized buttons as eyes.

If you are interested in purchasing either type of monkey, shoot me an email at sg-rethought@hotmail.com

Sui Generis supports Missions in Siguatepeque, Honduras

 Missions has always been a passion of mine and I have lately had such a burden to use my talents in anyway that I can to support missions.  Because of this burden, I have decided to donate 50% of all sales starting March 1, 2011 to support missions globally.  Currently, donated funds are helping to finacially support a church building project in Siguatepeque, Honduras.  I am excited to see what can be done through the donations of Sui Generis!!

Marc and Lori Schreckhise have been living in Siguatepeque,population 43141, since October of 2009 and have conducted services in the front room of their house.  As the church family grows a bigger building is needed.  Currently their congergation is running about 40 people.  They have begun a building project that will initially seat 250 people, which later can be expanded to seat about 400 people.  There are future plans for the site as well!  Sis. Schreckhise states "As of now, we do not have a school. In the future we really want one. We really really need one. Our children need a good school to go to."  They are currently having services on the foundation of the new building with bamboo poles and a tarp as the roof.  Here are some pictures. .
