The tale of a pair of crochet shoes

Drum roll please , presenting my gorgeous granddaughter.  Born 8 weeks ago . Once again I had the absolute privilege of being present at her birth . We had a very fraught time my daughter developed pre-eclampsia and her labour was induced.  She had quite a time,  fours days of contractions which then resulted in emergency caesarian. 
I'm pleased that both mummy and baby were fine.  Thank the Lord. I must say I'm not a churchgoer anymore but I am a woman who give thanks every single day . I cant tell how much I prayed .
I must tell you the tale of these crochet boots that my granddaughter is wearing.  I made this very same pair 24 years ago for my daughter . She wore them as a newborn . I saved them in a little box away from the light, stuffed far back in the recesses of my cupboard.  You can imagine my delight when I took them out and they looked as perfect as the day her mother wore them . 

Oh what joy I felt when my daughter placed them on her daughters feet . It was a tearful moment.  I really enjoy being a designer having my work published fills me with such happiness but honestly the sense of fulfillment I feel at the tale of these shoes beats all I have  achieved hands downs. Honestly, im not sure why they haven't discoloured.  

It has been such along time since I managed to blog.  I do miss you all . I do visit your blogs but I have not been able to leave comments.  Time just doesn't seem to be on my side . I am going to make a concerted effort do it at least every forthright and connect with the very people who inspired me .
Sending hugs 


  1. Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful new Grandaughter. What a joy to see the same shoes been worn now that her Mama wore. I do know how that feels when my Grand babies wore the christening gown that was made from my wedding gown.

  2. Congratulations to you all, your new granddaughter is so sweet. I bet your daughter was thrilled that you had kept her shoes all this time, for such a special little person. Xx

  3. Oh my goodness, my heart is full at the sight of that beautiful girl. COngrats to all of you. I love the story of the little baby shoes, so lovely. Enjoy your sweet little one.
