Playing On The Floor

Wonder what I've been up (or down) to this fall?

Yes, that's me, sitting cross-legged on the floor, playing with the grandson.

I remember my grandmother, back in North Texas, playing with my daughter when she was this age, as a baby.

My grandmother's name was Florence, and she loved that little great-grandbaby of hers. My daughter was the first great-grandbaby to come along.
Florence wrote poems about my little girl-child.
Unfortunately, Florence didn't get to see her get much older, she left us, and my  daughter didn't get to know her as she grew up.

Maybe that's why I dote on these grandbabies, moving all the way to Louisiana to be closer to them.

You have no idea how hard it is for me to get down on the floor like that, but it's worth it!
My sneaky daughter snapped this photo, obviously while I wasn't looking!
And honestly, I'm glad to have the picture.

Wanda, the pattern came from an old library book from the Louisiana library system, which is out of print. I don't remember the name of it, something to do with baby patterns - I know that's not too helpful. But if you do a search for thread crochet baby bootie patterns online, I know you'll get a lot of hits and maybe one will be what you need.

Hi, Riki, Hasn't he GROWN a LOT? He's a good eater, and putting on weight really well. He's got his first ear infection right now, being treated so he'll get better soon.

It's so great to see all my friends online! Thanks for letting me know you're still around!
