So they checked into the spa and spent the day getting all the kinks worked out. Jelly Belly Bunny enjoyed having her ears rubbed. Rosa Robin got a seaweed wrap, which she ended up eating instead. Tina developed a crush on her masseur and bought a fifty-visit punch card on her way out. Hodge and Podge received paraffin paw treatments and now they’re ready to crochet up a storm.
Welcome the new and improved cast of Squirrel Picnic! They’re bigger and better. Can you tell the difference?
What do you do when your muscles ache from an overindulgence in needle crafting? Do you relax with a heat pad or get a massage? Try a different style of hook or needles? Do you take time off and explore another medium? If you’re suffering from a needle-crafting injury, I’m sending you soothing thoughts and some good wishes to get you back to your craft soon again…
Because next week, I’ll release the pattern for Tina Ballerina Bear and I know you’ll want to try this!

Wow, it was so nice to see them all together. Good story and advices!!! My finger hurts from all the crocheting I have done and I think it will be a good idea to get a massage all over my body 🙂

I love it! Now that is sound advice. There’s nothing a good massage can’t cure. 😀

Heehee a new comic! I can totally relate with the sore wrist and neck so sometimes I get my husband to massage my hand. I also wear a Crochet Dude stress relief glove when I go to sleep 🙂

What a fantastic and loving husband! Sometimes I can score a shoulder rub if I put on my puppy-dog eyes. And thanks for the tip on the stress relief glove. We’re so lucky to live in a time when there’s plenty out there to assist the serious crafter!
