With the days flying by so quickly I need serious help. I have been hoping for some elves to appear and speed up my production in the studio and sewing rooms. None ever come to my rescue. So...I decided that I needed to bribe them with little elf shoes so their feet don't get cold in my mountain home.
With felt and crochet thread and needle I got busy. I was only going to make two shoes. I ended up giving those to Sisty when she was here visiting. I kept making them as they are portable and easy to work on when waiting for appointments. I admit the first one took way too long. My blanket stitch skills were very rusty. Once I got in the rhythm they just multiplied.
Thank you to my friend Judy of jfabrications blog. Some time ago she sent me this pattern and I set it aside. In sorting through a stack I recently found it and decided it is time to make these. My Grandma used to make some very similar so I like the connection.
Here is a shoe cut out and ready for stitching. The toe can be decorated with a simple pom-pom or a small jingle bell. I did think of beading some but have to realize my limitations of time. Maybe next year. Do you think I can bribe some elves to come and help me with my lists of projects?
Last night and today we got some rain sprinkles. It wasn't the good soaking we were hoping for but it is some moisture and will at least give the trees and plants a good drink.
Prayers and Healing Energy for all affected in the horrific tornadoes that did so much destruction.
This is still November and I am truly grateful for so many things...family, friends and health. The ability to spend my days enjoying life and being creative is such a blessing. I am thankful.
Creative Happy Hearts...
