Today I bought new shoes! Not just any shoes but BLUE CARTOON shoes ( I think they look like they are drawn in a cartoon - I had to add that as my husband is leaning over my shoulder demanding to know why they are cartoon shoes!!!). The dilemma has been that I needed shoes for my job as I have been wearing my boots all winter and now it is thinking about getting warmer (and there is under floor heating at work) I am boiling - therefore I needed new work shoes. But there has been much grumbling as on the whole I don't 'do' shoes and I resent any potential crafting spends going on something I just don't want. The extra dilemma here was the fact that I also needed new trainers - mine were eaten by a dog in September - these things only happen to me! So DOUBLE the spend required Grrrrrr!
Today however there was a truly happy conclusion to what was clearly a troubled situation. In Sheffield on a little trip out these amazing Blue Cartoon Shoes practically threw themselves off the shelf and into my life. Now THESE are shoes I can wear and wear ANYWHERE therefore solving both footwear traumas in one BINGO! Now to unveil the beauties.........
Excuse the flash it is late now we are home but I could not wait until tomorrow to blog them!!
Also a real plus is that they came in this box....
The design goes all around the edge. So I can see hinges going on this and a real project coming on - so it ticked the craft box too!!! Does it get any better???
I mentioned in my last post that May the knitted bunny would be soon getting a little boyfriend. Well Bayley has been released in Made By Ewes shop and is an absolute cutie. Could I wait to knit him? Of course not so an order was immediately placed and wool chosen from the wonderful Jamiesons range, which promptly arrived on Saturday morning and is totally snuggable.
Also over Easter I worked on some more furniture for Birchwood. So that I can paint it all in one go. Again excuse the flash photography it has been a miserably dark and rainy day today!
A teeny tiny stool.
Phew I think that's everything for now. Off to the farm again tomorrow with friends and my lad so it should be fun and lamb cuddles all around!
