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 .
