Little feet

What a joy to welcome a new little person into our world.  We’re celebrating the safe arrival of Zachary, born on 21st June, mid-summer.  The name is an old English form of Zechariah meaning “the Lord remembers”.  His parents also say they had in mind Zachary Macaulay, a leading evangelical abolitionist who campaigned against the slave trade.  Big shoes to fill.

I found the pattern for these little shoes on Purlbee.  I made the felt from an old jumper.  I am dying to know that they actually fit a little pair of baby feet: precious, beautiful little feet.  Welcome to the world, little chap.  We love you already.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
