For Lexi

One of the ladies at Morgan's office is about to go on Maternity Leave & is expecting a precious little baby girl within the next couple of weeks - her & her husband's first.
A little lady who's parents were told that she had spina bifida & that they would have to terminate the pregnancy. Parents who were already so much in love with their baby, who sought out other advice & decided to give this little one a chance at life - I am so inspired by this couple & have often thought just how I would react if I was in this situation?
With each stitch of these booties I prayed for this family & thanked God for this little ones life & prayed that somehow through this time her parents would seek God out for themselves and come to know him as their own personal saviour.
The office decided to put together a gift basket with each person contributing a little gift and Morgan knowing just how much I love to sew baby sized things asked if I would make a sock animal for his contribution (of course I would!) & it also gave me a great chance to try out this cutie booties pattern I have been wanting to make for ages.
Fabrics are from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern line.
Booties pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches.
& the Gift tag is by Morgan :) what a man.. we all remember him sewing and now crafting - oh my... I am sure it will not be a common occurrence but this, this is one of the many reasons I am so glad I get to marry this man :)
In Morgan's hands, they are SO small!

pps ;) Don't forget to enter the 'something old, something new, something crafty & something blue' GIVEAWAY!
