The Latest Thread ~ LaCartera Kids and R&R

More Inspiration for LaCartera Kids!

Since it’s official that my darling grand-daughter will arrive in July, this grandma has started crocheting an adorable blanket for her to enjoy for years to come.  I have settled on the colors with help from mom, but I don’t have a final design in mind so I’ve been testing out some simple but different looks.

 I thought I would mix-up the stripes a bit, but after a couple of hours adding rows of mini stripes it didn’t turn out the way I envisioned.  So I can officially say that my testing phase is over.

So it’s back to square one without the mini decorative stripes. It’s slowly taking shape and now I can concentrate on the crochet applique that I want to add as the finishing touch! I’m taking it slow to avoid aggravating wrist pain that I get from time to time when I crochet for long periods of time.

Rest and Relaxation

On the first beautiful spring day last Saturday, me and the hubby went to the driving range to enjoy the warm day with a little coaxing from me. Neither of us wanted to admit that we had sore muscles the next day, but when you start getting old every muscle you don’t use, you have to rebuild, which is a nice way of saying my body ached for the week after the driving range ! I also aggravated my wrist from crocheting for an extended period of time over the weekend too! 🙂

Stay tuned there’s more to come from LaCartera!

    There’s a look of concentration going on there at the range! Keep at it, it gets less painful on the muscles but will drive you mad in other ways! Someone once said to me that golf is one of 2 things that you can enjoy without being very good at, the other is sex!! I once told the ladies this in a speech when I was lady captain, I got very mixed reactions 🤣

      Hahaha! I’m excited to get back out there, but I’ll keep that in mind. I’m pretty stiff with the golf. LOL

        You need to relax and think oily when you swing!

        Thanks! I need all of the help I can get. 😁 I’m concentrating too much on my grip, stance, swing & my husband reminding me of all of the above. 😂 Next time I’ll think oily and try to relax. I’ll report back in a couple of weeks.
