So since I'm crafting for everyone else in the family, how could I not craft for my mom's dog?  Since I picked her up at boarding last time and forgot to get her blanket, I made her a new one - using fleece I bought as remnants ages ago - so yay for "free" gift!

The back is entirely green ... not perfect, especially as I didn't actually measure anything, but it's warm and sorta squishy, which will be nice for Prairie, as she's getting on in age. 

And the toy that was kept at my house for when she visited died, thanks the attention of two other dogs, so I rescued the squeaker and made the following.  It was supposed to be vaguely human-shaped, but it now has no neck.  Suggestions on what I can tell my mom it is?  (Yeti?  Frog?)

i vote Alien (although that's kind of planet-ist of me)
so then, perhaps gingerbread man with colorful icing.

and that's a very pretty dog blanket!
