Coasters for Valentine's Day

Well, resting the carpal tunnel went out the window yesterday afternoon! Just had to do something. I figured the teachers got enough candy from all the kids so I made some coasters. I thought the colors would be like the conversation hearts. I made 2 sets, just finished the trim on them and after I bundled up the one set I decided to take a pic. I made 4 to the set. I really like this pattern and they work up really fast.

It says it is only 34 degrees outside but doesn't seem that cold. I have the door open and the weeny dogs are laying in the sun spot right in front of the door. It's funny when all 3 dogs are there and the cat too! They only have so much space but they all seem to fit in to get their space in the sun.

Seems I can crochet without as much pain as when I knit so guess I will go and find another crochet project and leave the knitting for a while. I was telling George about this carpal tunnel massage contraption I saw that is guaranteed to free you of pain in 10 days by using it twice a day for 15 minutes at a time. Sounds good to me but the price is $150.00. A lot cheaper then surgery but I'm always afraid they won't return my money if I try to return! Then with the results of my right hand I wonder if the money might be worth it. Gotta think about this one.

Well better go. Hope you all are having a wonderful day. Bye for now...Cindy
