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.
