Tampa Bay Crochet Friday Update
Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to give you all a little update. Over the past few days I have become addicted to crocheting earrings. I've already made three pairs and given one pair to a friend as a gift. I found some great tutorials on Youtube that I will share with you guys in an upcoming post. I want to take a few photos of the earrings that I have made to include with the tutorial links. I will most likely post the links over the weekend, so keep a look out.
While crocheting the earrings I did make a mistake. I told you all that I have been dealing with some health problems lately and part of my health concerns is my back. I found out that I have three bulging discs in my lower back in addition to coccydynia. I will be going to get a steroid injection in my back hopefully within the next few weeks but until then I have to take it easy. I have a doughnut cushion to sit on that helps a little with the coccydynia but yesterday while crocheting some earrings I forgot to use it and I ended up in some pretty severe pain. I was concentrating so hard the earring tutorial that I didn't even notice until I stood up. Needless to say i spent the rest of the day in bed with an ice pack on my back. Enough about my boring health concerns, I hope to be at 100% in a few weeks and able to start crocheting full-time again!
I also wanted to let you know that I hope to start my learning to blog about crochet series next Friday. I will post a blog entry at the beginning of next week outlining what I hope to cover throughout the series. After that, I will post a new entry each Friday. While I will be focusing on creating a crochet themed blog I think there will be a lot of information and tips that could be used to create a blog on any topic.
I hope that you all have a great weekend!
