To get started is everything

Like most of important things in life, this happened by chance. On any day, without a special reason, my mother started to practice these little baby booties, only motivated by her continous ambition for learning new things. The first finished boottie was a huge challenge. If she could achive it, if she managed to get only one, that would mean the pair would be next, then other pairs, more colours, different sizes… A whole range of possibilities! If she managed to get only one, then she would be able to do everything! Like most of beautiful things in life… To get started is everything.

I still remember how proud she felt when she finished her first sole, which was followed by a beautiful and tiny closed and finished bootie, stitch by stitch. My brother looked at her, as innocent as surprised, with a contained smile, witness of the secret that he still was hiding…

That same evening, he gave us the great news. My niece Aitana was on the way. Quirk of fate, my mother began to weave which unknowingly was the beginning of a beautiful new stage in our lives.

No need to tell you, that my niece didn’t lack booties, she had all kinds of models and colours… Before birth, there were a lot of them waiting for her, carefully deposited in a small cloth bag, looking forward to meeting her little feet.

So this is the way I want to start this blog, with the simplicity of a first baby bootie which will lead us, stitch by stitch, to something bigger that we still unknow…

Because all beautiful things in life begin like this, almost by chance  😉
