Joni's Bears & Minnie

I promised some pics on those bears I'm doing from my sister's clothing.  I told her children to pick out a clothing item and I would make a teddy bear for them as a remembrance.  I was handed several bags with a clothing item and the name of the recipient.  Eighteen bears to make in all.  This was the first one I made from Joni's sparkly jacket.

I have five more done.

 My sister was a fan of red.  So, six down and 12 to go.  

I'm almost finished with the doll quilt for October.  It needs to go to Germany so I'll have to get in finished and sent off real soon.  I've been away from quilting too long because I felt a little rusty with this piece.

Minnie is spending 24/7 on her bed(s).  I have one in the living room, one in the sewing room where I quilt and one in the bear den downstairs.

The prednisone has taken hold and the pain meds keep her comfortable.  She cannot walk yet and I have to carry her  outside to potty.  Actually, she has no bladder control and doesn't know she has to go potty so,essentially, I'm dealing with doggy diapers.   The first two nights I slept on the floor beside her but last night I went to my bed and her bed was next to mine.  I've gotten advice from a few friends saying that she will eventually recover but it will take some time.  I hope they're right.  I'm afraid my back may blow out like it did in March and then what will we do?

Hope everyone has a good week.  I have no major commitments scheduled except a trip to the vet on Thursday.  But, that could change by tomorrow.
