I must say, Thanksgiving weekend was fabulous. A good dinner with friends; sleeping in; getting my 40 year old recipe book reorganized and the new recipes that had been stuffed in the front or back put on pages and inserted in the right place; and as you might expect from me, some work in the garden!
I had also been wondering what to give a friend who is expecting a baby in February. It is her third, so she is pretty fully equipped. Nonetheless, every baby needs some new things, so I thought about a stuffed felt animal, but then I thought maybe I could make some slippers for the cold February.
I did a little research. How big is a newborn foot in inches or centimeters? Well, as you might guess it varies, but a three inch sole was recommended for slippers, so I went with that. My guess is they won’t fit for long.
May you have warm slippers yourself as we head into colder times!
