... since I've been sewing. I am focusing on my health right now (avoiding pain and regaining strength to stand/walk regularly again) and I've had no energy to sew. Meds make me tired. Physical Therapy makes me tired. And by the time I have time to sew (health comes first), I have no energy left.
This is temporary, thankfully, and IT'S WORKING! I'm getting stronger and able to stand/walk for longer every day. Sew thankful!
Tonight I decided to take the bull by the horns, or the stag by the antlers. I dove into my scrap pile, downloaded this fun, free elephant stuffed animal pattern, and got to work.
This elephant finished at about 7"x9". There is a smaller elephant I may try, too, but those curves are gonna be SUPER TIGHT.
The fabric is some leftover Stag & Thistle fabric (hence the stag reference above). I have no idea where this elephant will find a permanent home, but I'm relieved to say "I sewed something!"
