Baby Booties

I finished these baby booties a few days ago. I have a friend having a baby girl and thought they would be a fun gift. They didn't take very long to make. I have to buy some pink ribbon and lace it through the openings. They are a very cute gift to make and I hope she likes them!

I've been having some awful cell phone problems. My phone was fine Sunday but Monday morning it was acting weird. It seemed to spontaneously shut off and turn on. It did that a few times but I didn't think much of it. Well, as the day continued, it started doing that all the time! The phone became so hot and the battery kept dying. I had to go to the Verizon store and although they tried to fix it, I ended up getting a new phone delivered to my house. Thank God I had insurance! They told me that I could set the phone up when I got it but I went right back to the store and had them do the set up. I had no idea what I was doing and I didn't want to take the chance of screwing up the phone. So, my phone is now back to normal and I'm happy again!

My Lil' Twister quilt top is almost done. I have one more border to add. I'm hoping to be able to post a picture soon. It's supposed to be close to 100 degrees today and tomorrow and close to 90 on Friday. I'm working a lot the next few days. I doubt I'll get much done. I'll have to see how much energy I have!! I might surprise myself.


  1. Love those booties. Wish I could knit. I can crochet but haven't tried booties. I am doing newborn caps right now.

    I understand about the phone issues. I go to a store in our small town because they take care of absolutely everything for me and send me a thank you note each time I purchase.

  2. I was so happy to have the "experts" set up my phone instead of me! Would have taken me forever! The booties are so easy. There isn't even a seam to sew!

  3. Those booties are adorable - a perfect and practical baby gift.

  4. Thanks! They were cute even while I was making them!

  5. Oh Gosh! Those booties are just cutie-patootie!

    Glad your phone is back in working order.

    1. I just put the ribbons on them and they're even cuter! This phone was driving me nuts! I wish I had never become so dependent on it.

  6. The booties are SO cute!!! I tried knitting booties one time and they came out different sizes. LOL!!! Someone told me to knit both pair at the same time. I'll have to try that. I have a niece that is due to have a baby girl in September.

  7. This pattern was pretty easy. No seams to sew up! Pretty fast. I'll help you if you need it!


Starting Step Down Quilt

Here are my first 2 rows of Step Down Quilt. The directions are a little bit quirky but I'm catching on! There are 5 rows of blocks...
