Good morning you all! Another day has dawned, and hopefully it will not be as cold and misty as yesterday, although it feels very chilly just now. The meteorologists have promised that spring is on the way, and that it will be warm by the end of the week. I sure hope they are right!
Yesterday I managed a trip to a shoe shop to get some new shoes, always a big undertaking, as I find it difficult to get shoes that fit, don't hurt, that I like and that are not disgracefully expensive. I think I struck lucky! I found some red bootees, made of a soft suede, and decorated with nice, punky chains and studs. I will probably look like something left over from Christmas, but do I care? I just fell in love with them, and they are sooooooooo comfortable and light! I am sure I should be buying sensible, old lady shoes, but I won't! But I did buy a pair of brown leather shoes to wear when I go anywhere where I have to dress as a normal being. And both pairs were reduced by 50%, so got 2 for the price of one!
And in case you are wondering, I do NOT usually put my boots onto my white couch - only if they are shiny bright and new!
The quilt is something I started last year, using some remnants of satin I got in a sale. I cut the material into strips and then rectangles, and sewed them together. The irregular pattern is because I had more of some colours than others. The whole thing has been sewn to a thin layer of fibre-fill, and the reverse has been made from orange satin. The quilt is light as a feather, and measures 1.60 x 1.20 meters, and is just right to keep me warm on my couch, when I am reading or taking a little nap. It hasn't been ironed yet, as my iron committed suicide last year when it leaped from the top shelf of my bottomless pit, aka hall (hell?) closet, trying to make a hole in my head as well. Fortunately it only made a hole in the floor boards, and since then I haven't been able to iron anything....
That's all for today, I will be back tomorrow with my tags for Tag Tuesday. Have a good day, take care, and thanks for dropping by!
