Two New WIP's

After I finished the Lamb Pillow/Toy, I wanted to crochet a bear. I wanted to do a Scrappy Bear. But...  Since I've been using all my scraps in blankets, I don't have much of a selection.  Then I thought about making a pillow. Since I'm all about the cuddly toys.  So I started a Bear Pillow yesterday. I crocheted one before.  Hopefully this one won't take me as long as that one did- over a year. For some reason I think I sewed a fabric pillow to put inside that one. Maybe that's why it took me so long..  

And actually, I did start a bear, too. A Care Bear!!! O.M.G.  I used to hate the Care Bears.  I think I was 19 or 20 when they came out?  My younger sisters were into all that..   I am doing the Funshine Bear. I actually had the exact yarn called for in the pattern. So that worked out good..   I'm crocheting these both for OST/CPS on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.  For foster children..     I am also doing two blankets for them, too. One is the Scrap Strips blanket. Which I posted about already...

The other one is a C2C scrap blanket.  Can you tell it's my favorite go-to pattern? I think I have it memorized by now...  :P  Oh wait, for some reason I remember talking about the yarn I started this with. Maybe I did post about this?..   Yup, I did. Well I know I haven't taken a picture of how far I got (last night)..   
And, a picture of Duke giving us "The Baby Seal Eyes" this morning...   He wanted to go outside. Again.   He stares at you with the baby seal eyes, and then sticks his neck out; it is so funny.  Like staring at you isn't working, so he has to emphasize that he is staring at you; and what do I have to do to get your attention?...

Indy comes up, places her head on your lap and then stares at you hoping you will take her out. So pathetic and yet so comical.
