Grandma Weekends

Grandma and Carter barefoot footprints.

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:

Carter at the playground.

And this:

Adorable toddler.

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.

Not impressed.


  1. What a cutie pie Sherri, they are amazing and fun and I know exactly what you mean when you say "it makes my heart happy". oh, and you just whipped that necklace up after he off!! You know I am kidding (not). I love the necklace, the colors are beautiful and I really like the technique you are using.

    1. Hahahaha - don't be jealous, dahling... you can do things with polymer I'll never do!

  2. Oh what a cutie you've got there! My hubs and I are already telling our son (who's only going to be 17 this summer) that we cannot wait (but we're happy to wait about 10 years if we have too!!) until he's married and gives us grand-babies. He was so much fun as a little one that we know it's going to be fantastic w/grandkids! Beautiful necklace, by the way, too. Love the new knotting technique you're doing - it's just super.


I'd love to hear from you!
