We're Expecting!

If you think there hasn't been any crafting going on around here since I returned from Japan, you'd be wrong! I had to make these Bitty Booties out of some thick felt I brought back from Japan.

I love the little snap.

No, I'm not pregnant silly! I'm too old for that and it can't happen anymore, not with me. These are for some friends of ours in Alaska who are expecting their first kiddo Jack. His last name is Boots, so I thought it'd be appropriate for me to make him his first pair. Jack Boots.

But, wait! We really are expecting...

Finally! We're expecting a new puppy around October 5th!!!
This is Max our West Highland Terrier and he'll be getting a new brother or sister in time for Christmas.
Max is 11 and is getting very needy in his old age.

I'm getting empty nest syndrome with my youngest ready to fly the coop,
so I asked for a new puppy.

We decided if we choose a boy its name will be Rocco.
Does anyone know of any cute girl names?

Those booties are PERFECT, just plain perfect, Maize. I adore your site; don't always comment but read it often :). Congrats on the pupper to come - what kind will s/he be? Girl names - how fun...MILLIE comes to mind: Max and Millie. Or LUCY. Love that one for a pooch. Best of luck! Fun!

How exciting! My sister-in-law has a Westie named Bonnie. Max and Bonnie - that has a nice ring to it.

The booties are adorable--I really like the detail of the little strap/snap.
