Crochet Today May/June 2010
I hope you are all doing great :)
I had to change my MS medicine & I've been feeling pretty bad :(
Still, I've been doing work for Crochet Today, and I'm still working on the "secret project".
So this is going to be short. I'm crocheting in slow motion and generally living in slow motion while I wait for my body to get used to the meds :(
Big hug!

**Hola, espero que anden todos bien.
Tuve que cambiar de remedio para la MS y me he estado sintiendo horrible :(
Igual hice unos juguetes para Crochet Today, y todavia sigo trabajando en el "proyecto secreto".
Asi que este va a ser cortito. Estoy haciendo crochet y viviendo en camara lenta mientras que espero que mi cuerpo se acostumbre a las inyecciones nuevas :(
Un abrazo fuerte!


  1. I'm sending a large warm hug to you as you adjust to your new meds. And slow motion is still better than no motion.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. You are one busy lady. :)

    I just wanted to say that I absolutely love Amigurumi Two. I have enjoyed it so much, and my 2 year old looks at it like he's looking at a toy catalog. We already have plans for the airplane and the tea set to be our kids' christmas gifts this year. :) As it is, we have two fish, one koala, one snail (aka "mail") and one baby turtle that go everywhere in our diaper bag; they are my kids' favorite toys - and mine too!
    Right now, I am crocheting as quickly as I can to make 2 of Oli's baby for two little girls who will be having a baby brother soon.
    I love giving and receiving hand made gifts, but am not good at coming up with my own pattern ideas. I so appreciate people like you, who are talented enough to do so, and generous enough to share your patterns with the rest of us! I hope you have a great day, and that you will be back to your old self soon.

  3. These are so cute! Me encantan! Espero que te sientes mejor después que tu cuerpo se ajusta a los nuevos medicamentos.

  4. Super cute! I wish you the best. Feel better.

  5. God bless you. Love your work. What talent!!

  6. I am sorry to hear you are under the weather - hopefully your body will accept the new meds quickly and you can feel more like yourself soon.
    Blessings to you -
    Sending Healing Thoughts.

  15. Ana Paula,
    I so enjoyed the patterns posted in the latest issue of Crochet Today. I am so sorry to hear that you have not been feeling well, and pray that your medication will soon bring relief and that you'll soon be feeling 100% better! Be gentle with yourself and rest when you need it. Take care!

  16. Your new animals are so cute!

    Prayers an hugs,

  17. hi ana,

  18. Aloha to you Ana Paula. I'm a new fan! I accidentally fell across your Amigurumi World book (the first one) two weeks ago and I've been crocheting joyfully since. I cannot remember the last time I've enjoyed a project and your patterns are easy for this novice to follow! Hope you feel better and can't wait to get your #2 book! Blessings to you!

  19. Hola Ana Paula, acabo de encontrar tu blog y me encantan tus amigurumis, los descubrí hace un par de años, y el año pasado mi hermano me regaló Amigurumi Two, es muy lindo!!
    No sé lo que tienes, pero espero que te mejores pronto, eres muy talentosa :)
    Y te agradezco el post anterior, tu preocupación hacia Chile, así como la de otros países hermanos, lo agradecemos todos los chilenos.

    Un abrazo desde mi terremoteado país :)

  20. Ana Paula:
    Te invito a visitar el fondo del mar que realicé haciendo un colage de distintos patrones tuyos. Hace un tiempo compré tus libros y me encantan.

  21. Hope you are feeling much better by now.
    I love that cute brown/beige turtle pictured above. Which book has it in there? If anyone knows, please post.
    thanks for sharing your wonderful patterns in a terrific book...

  22. Ana Paula,

    I hope you get on the mend soon. I was diagnosed with MS about a year and a half ago. Take it easy!

    I love the Amigurumi Two book, and just ordered the Crochet Today magazine.
    Thankx for some amazing patterns!

  23. I hope you are feeling better.
    I also crochet and deal with chronic illness so I know what you mean. After a ten day hiatus I finally managed to pick my hook again yesterday.
    Love your work. Hang in there hun. We can make it.

  24. I love the pandas!
    My little sister's nickname is Panda so I made a panda toy for here but it ended up really lumpy :(
    I'm going to try it again thought now that I have better practice with stuffing lol.
    Any way I hope you fell better!

  25. you are an amazing person!!!!
    hope all goes well with your medicine..

  26. I just finished making the mommy and baby turtles from "Amigurumi Two!" and they came out so great. I can't wait to start on a new project from your book. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  27. Dear Ana,
    I just love these little animals and ive been having fun making them. I however am having problems with the lions body. It seems much too small for this head. What do I do?
