Pattern Testing

I was asked to test a pattern for Alisha (Chiscrochetcrazy), the cutest little mouse couple. Here is Mr. Sonny.
And here is Mamacita. I love these mice. I was going to keep them for myself. But my Grandma has been feeling depressed lately (she has been really sick, in the hospital again, and other things....) Since she LOVES Mickey Mouse and Minnie, I thought she would like these. I know they aren't Mickey & Minnie, but they could be distantly related, no? :P
I have also been testing a pattern for RoseRed at Crochetville. It is the prettiest TP cover I have yet to see. This is what I have so far.

I want to make several more of these. One for my own bathroom, too. I am having a hard time deciding what colors to do the flower. Probably a burgundy and mauve color. This one would go in my Grandma's bathroom, too.

I'll probably send this one (when it is finished, that is) to an elder I send things to, though. With a package of toilet paper. She asked me to send some bath towels and so far I have sent her lavender ones. So this will 'match'. ;P
My pain is lessening a little each day. I hope this is a good sign it will go away soon. The last two nights I have been able to sleep through the whole night without waking up. My husband informed me this morning that I coughed so loud in my sleep, that I woke him up. He said it was so loud, it echoed. And that didn't even wake me up (that I remember)!! LOL I must have been choking in my dream or something. ;)

Those mice are adorable!!! It's so sweet of you to give them to your Grandma. I'm sorry she hasn't been well. I'm glad you're finally able to get some sleep and I hope it's starting to go away.
Keeping my fingers crossed,

Glad you're feeling better, Tina.
Those mice would cheer up your Grandma :)
The TP cover is lovely! I admire your patience in coming up with those stuff inspite of the medical problems...but I guess it makes you feel good esp. since you're making it for someone else ;)

Thank you, Cherri and Mimi. It is still hurting but nowhere near as bad. The doctor said it should go away on it's own but I don't know if it will or not... Time will tell. Thanks! (Technically I still have to make one more mouse I just put the clothes on the one... lol)
