Uh Oh... Here I Go Again...

I need to start another project like I need another hole in my head. With two days til we move, and all... (sigh) But, my back went out (sort of...) Wasn't really my back. Felt more like a pinched sciatic nerve. My left leg was numb, I was laying with ice on my butt all day.... I couldn't do much else, so.... I finished crocheting my son's 'white bunny with a black tail' as much as I could; until I buy some more eyeballs. I thought 'I want to make something just because I want to make it.... Not because I am testing it, or someone wants one, or anything....' Sooo.... I started another stripey bear. In GIRL colors! Ha! None of our boys will want this one.... (evil grin).. I finished the body last night. I am having a hard time deciding which color to do next. My kids are helping me, though. I'll post a picture of it when it's done. I am probably donating it to one of the different causes at Crafting for a Cause. I wonder who has the stripey bear I made for KristieMN's toy drive? I hope they love it. I don't know if I ever posted a link to the pattern for this bear, so here it is: Grandma's Scrappy Bear. I went to the Teddy Bear CAL at Crochetville to find the pattern link (someone found it for me, and posted it there)... and saw that the CAL is still going strong! Which is good, since I started another one! How funny. I have the pattern printed out, but wanted to share it with y'all here... ;) Have a great day everyone!

I have trouble with my sciatic nerve too......it's not fun, I know.

Moving is not fun either, I know that too. But hopefully it will all be worth it in the long run. We moved last year in the first week of December and it's tough with everything else going on with the holidays but......YOU WILL BE FINE!!

Thank you for the RAOK. What a nice surprise that was.

Be well, be safe and good luck with the move. Keep smiling!!

Thank you Lisa. We just moved almost 1300 miles not even two years ago. Now we are moving 800+ miles.... (sigh) Thank you for the encouragement.

I am glad you liked the RAOK. When you said you put that book on your wishlist I thought 'well I can't afford the book... but I could get her the little booklet!'

Thanks for stopping by, Lisa! I'm glad you are feeling better, too. :)
