I love being Grandma; it is so much more than I ever could have imagined! The little guy and I went out barefoot after a rain this weekend and splashed in puddles. When we went back in the house, I noticed the little trail of footprints we were leaving and grabbed my camera to go back out and snap this photo. It makes my heart happy.
So does this:
I will confess that I don't get much macrame done when he's around. I can't imagine the mayhem he would unleash with cord and beads. Then again, who wants to play with that stuff when you could be playing with him. After he went home yesterday, I did manage to get a necklace made. It's not as cute as him, but I'm going to show it to you anyway:
I've been messing with that new knotting pattern that sort of reminds me of ivy. For this necklace, I added a ceramic pendant and matching beads that I picked up in a little shop up in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. I also put in a couple of glass beads in a minty green that seemed to make the perfect transition between the brown ceramic and the soft knot work.
Tomorrow I have to go back to work, and even though it will be Tuesday, it will feel like a Monday. *sigh* We are unimpressed.
