Trying to catch up !

I apologize to those who are waiting to see my newest bears.   I've be staying at my Mom's since last Tuesday, just popping home when I can to check in .  My Mom is getting around a bit better on her crutches so I can leave for longer periods of time.  I have  2 mink bears finished, and will do my absolute best to get them listed this week. 

It seems like every time I announce that bears are coming soon something interrupts my plan lol.  

On another note.......  I got a great report from my oncologist last Thursday  and I don't need to get checked again for 1 year !!!  That was such a blessing to hear.    Thanking  God :)

  Thanks for your patience.

New bears soon

Oh my, it was such a gorgeous long weekend.  Sunny and 20C all three days.  It doesn't get much better than that !  Just like summer. 

I spent some of the time working on bears.  I hope to have a bear or two listed this week.  I have them almost completed.  When they get listed depends on if the weather co-operates for taking their photos.  I think it is supposed to rain for 3 days .

Also, I'll be busy helping my mom for the next while. She fell and broke her ankle yesterday so will be in a cast for 6 weeks.   She is such a tough lady, and sometimes a little too independant.  I'll help her as much as she will allow :)  Fortunately, she only lives 10 minutes away.

A great week !

It has been a  really good week.  My injections went well, with no side effects other than some bruising and sore muscles in my uhm...derriere :) I am so thankful !  Blood tests were done this afternoon so in a couple of weeks I will get all the results.

Also this week,  I was able to get 4  bears cut out and they are in various stages of completion.   Some should be ready next week if things go as planned :)  It really is so much more productive to do several at once, but really messy.  I have to wear a mask now as I seem to get stuffed up from all the fur, and sneeze like crazy !    I don't often get inspired to make more than one bear.   I like to work on one thing at a time through to completion. 

I'm taking a bearmaking break this weekend as hubby and I celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary.  I am blessed  to have had him in my life for 28 years !

New bears

I am excited to say I finished the two mink bears and will hopefully get them listed for adoption this weekend !  I'm not sure if it will be at the same time or not yet.  However, an email will go out to my mailing list as soon as they are listed.

Keeping Busy

I've been trying to keep focused this week and concentrate on bears.  It often becomes too easy to get distracted when working at home.   I am happy to say I have 2 mink bears on the work table , one is nearing completion .  My workspace is a mess, but that means creativity is happening :)

 I actually would like to get both of them done before I go for my thyrogen injections and tests next week.  I'm not sure what to expect , but hope the side effects are minimal.  Some people have no reaction to the thyrogen, others get nausea, headaches and tiredness- hypothroid symtpoms.   Either way, I am just happy to be getting on with it, and hope this "liquid gold" does it's job :)

 I'll be sure to post the bears when they are ready for adoption !
