Winding Down

My line manager forbade me to take any work home this weekend so I have been trying to revitalise – I have done no cooking and went to visit the Loch Lomond Quilt show yesterday. I managed two venues in an hour and a half, stuff but Mira was getting to the noisy stage and couldn’t be bribed with gingerbread men anymore so we had to leave. It was very inspiring and so I started recycling another pair of shoes…

I had thought about this crazy lace patchwork idea before but after tramping through the heels of another pair, physiotherapy and failing to find anything I liked on Argyle Street yesterday, eco-friendlyness, creativity, economy and therapy once again come together in beautiful harmony! Lace from Charlotte and my stash, dyed with silk paint, applied with fabric glue, to be anchored firmly with beading. Watch this space! The ones I collaged with stamps last summer keep cracking, so I may have to find another use for them… ivy planters maybe?
