My BIL continues to recover from his emergency surgery for an infection from Diverticulosis. Prayers are greatly appreciated. He is expected to be in the ICU at least till the end of February, and it may be 6 months or more, before he is able to go back to work. (Thank Ghu, Buddha, and Herb for "Family Leave" and Health Insurance.)
I'm busy lately making amigurumi critters. (ami= knit or crochet and gurumi from "niguri"= stuffed animal(s). Big hits have been the rats, and "Mr. Pooh". Mr. Pooh is based on the cartoon character by Ophelia Chong. (She posts some of her work on Flickr.com) Today, I'm working on "Mercenary Imp" for Greg Nowak, the creator of that character.
