Another year has come and gone, and this one has been rough. What I thought was a pulled muscle in my back causing pain turned out to be a symptom of gallstones. Today I am 3 weeks post cholecystectomy, and I’m pretty much back to feeling normal. Well, normal for my age anyway. Yes, I’m at the age now where things just don’t work as well as I would like. Fortunately, I have this little crochet business which allows me to work my own schedule. As the story goes, I’m working 80 hours a week for myself in order to avoid working 40 hours a week for someone else! The great part is most of that time is spent crocheting, which really isn’t work to me at all. Enough about me! Today I have some more gift tags for you to download, this time Birthday Tags.

Have you been watching the Olympics. The other evening I saw watching the beauty of synchronized diving. I don’t know anything about the sport except less splash means a higher score, but when they’re in perfect synch, it’s beautiful to watch. They did a backstory about Tom Daley hoping to win gold, as he has been an Olympic diver since he was 14. Of course, that guaranteed that I would root for him, because everyone loves an underdog story. Then yesterday in a crochet group on Facebook, someone posted a story about Daley learning to knit and crochet. Now I’m definitely a fan! Congratulations Tom and his diving partner Matty Lee on winning gold!
As fiber artists, most of us are not Olympians and spend entirely too much time sitting down. Take a look at this great video from Brittany for some great exercises – Yoga for Crafters.
Don’t forget, all patterns and ebooks are 25% off through 7/31/2021 in my Etsy shop.
