Oh Baby boots.

Hi there my friends.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week.
We are having such a wonderful beginning of the Fall season here in Oregon. The weather is still warm during the day and getting cold and cozy in the evenings. The leafs are turning yellow, orange and the most beautiful shades of red. It almost feel like you are walking into a picture everywhere you go ... what a blessing to live in such a great beautiful place.

I have been working a lot. My job is, sometimes, very busy and stressful with lots of emergencies,,, and right now I'm in one of those times ... but I have put out a lot of fires in the last 3 weeks and hope we are coming down to a more calm time.

Because I have been so busy I haven't been able to do much, but what I have been doing has been very happy. I have mostly worked on a few baby blankets. The very rewarding kind of blanket I make for a lot of my friends and family. I have shown you a few of them before. they are made of fabric (which I enjoy doing a little bit of sewing) and crochet around the edges.

This week I also finally finished one of the favorite baby booties I have ever made ...

I saw this baby boots at a market about a year ago. I have a friend who just had a girl. I made a blanket for her but really wanted to make some baby boots ... then I remember the "baby ughs" I just loved it ...

... I looked for the pattern and found it on Etsy ... oh, thank God for Etsy..

Here is the information in case you feel like you won't be able to sleep if you don't make one also:
The pattern is "The Furrylicious Boot" from Twogirlspatterns at etsy.

I have to say I have been crocheting for a very long time and this is not an easy project, but the pattern is very, very well written and they have a wonderful series of pictures that makes it not only a lot easier to complete, but also a very fun pair of baby booties. I'm not one to like making socks or sleepers because I'm a classic case of the second sock syndrome ... I get all excited about making a pair of socks, but after I make the first one I really don't want to make the second one and it takes me a while before I can pick it up again ...but this one was all worth it ... I'm even thinking about making another one.

Well, I hope you enjoy the pictures ( I can't wait to see a picture of the baby wearing it) ...
and that you are enjoying whatever project you are working on it right now ... after all it should be the journey, not so much the destination, that really makes as happy ...

Thank you so much for coming to visit me today and hope you are enjoying your week and the coming weekend.


  1. Those are SO cute! I've seen some like that before. You know what would be cute? Add 3 little bells where the buttons are - can you imagine how cute that would sound on a baby kicking it's feet? I sure hope to see you again soon. Gracie is back and maybe we can set up a lunch.
