A Beautiful Morning

I hope it's a beautiful Sunday morning where you areI awoke feeling refreshed and ready to start the week.  Last week there was another bump in my road as my sister had emergency surgery resulting in a bypass on her leg.  She lost her left leg due to the MRSA virus and circulation problems over a year ago and it didn't look good for the right leg.  I visited her yesterday, thanks to my BFF Sandy and her offer to drive,  and the prognosis looks good.  She's determined to get to Hawaii in November with her girlfriends.  The heaviness I felt in my heart all last week has lifted.

My other sister from Omaha stopped for a brief visit on her way to northern Minnesota for her annual family gathering.  We haven't seen each other since January so we quickly caught up.  She left me with this

 and this

I will be making three bears from these two minks for a friend of hers.  The total  bear projects has now reached 21.  Be prepared to see a lot of posts on how these projects are going.  

I'm off to church.  Have a great day, everyone.  I know I will.

So glad you are having a good start to your week.
Your bear making materials are looking up too. ;)

So happy to hear your heart feels lighter today, and that your sister appears to be on the mend!!

Oh, now these will make some really lovely, cuddly bears. You are going to be so busy. It's a good thing I haven't got round to sorting out my bear stuff to give to you. This should keep you busy for at least a few months and I can put off my sorting till after Christmas. :-)
