When it rains, it pours! I have had some pain in my lower back and hip, then I got sick, and then I woke up unable to move. Yup, out goes my back. Ugh....
Haven't had this happen in about 7 years. Worst part is, I don't even know how I did it. Just happened. Makes me feel like I'm getting old.
I was told no work for a few days (can't really afford that, but I have no choice), and don't bend or lift anything. Yeah....sure! I have a two year old! Not exactly easy, but I have been trying to follow the doctor's orders.
The bright side to all of this, is that despite the constant pain, I am confined to the couch and my crochet (yay!). So I am getting quite a bit accomplished.
My daughter needed some warmer clothes for the coming cooler months. Seeing as she had outgrown most of her sweater, sweatshirts, and long sleeved shirts, I decided that I better make her a new sweater. So I did! It came out beautifully, if I do say so myself. The best part is that she LOVES it! She didn't want to take it off. Always makes me feel good when she enjoys the things that I make for her.
Next on my agenda is finishing up her Minnie Mouse costume for Wednesday trick or treating (this will be her first time!), and making hat/mitten sets for my two nephews. Not to mention, I have several other new ideas of things I would like to make. It seems there is never enough time in a day, but now that I am stuck on this couch, most of this stuff may get finished this weekend!
I also just released my first pattern on Friday in my Etsy shop! I was hoping to list it on Craftsy as well,
but haven't gotten that far yet. Maybe I will get it on there by the end of the weekend. I have another new hat in my shop as well, and more to come.
There are several other patterns in the works at the moment, and I am deciding which ones will be next. As soon as I get them typed up and tested, I am hoping to release a few more this year.
