I made a special bear for a very special friend and co-worker. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is having surgery Friday. This was the very first bear I've made in quite some time. I forgot how happy bear making makes me-and especially when I can give one to someone to help cheer them up and bring a smile to their face. I couldn't post anything about the bear til now, because I wanted to surprise her (she reads my blog now and then) But, I gave the bear to her today. I hope she likes it as much as I liked making it. I hope all goes well for her and she has a speedy recovery.
