Love the sandals tres chic xxx Julie
You've captured the frazzled look so well. What a talented woman.......and she even made her own sandals!Ruby
Own it. Posess your obsession, avoiding regression, make it yourself, don't buy off the shelf.
julie,I have two pairs of my own: one in camo for slogging through the daily jungle of life and the other in gold for party times.;-)
Rubie,She's a master of that hastily put together look, even though it took her weeks to get there.
DCW,I curse the day that Pierre taught me to look at a desirable item on a store shelf and say to myself, "I bet I could make that."
She is delightful. Could so very much be ME in the burkies and and with all her knitting parafilnalia!You just got another follower! LOL
Lynn,Ah, I see we share not only a shared name, love of cats and photography, but Birkenstocks and knitting as well!
Knitting baffles me but my Mom is really good at it, so I have a lot of hats, scarves, and handbags that are so unique and fun. But, I do understand the DYI mentality. Sometimes, it gets me into a lot of trouble and prevents me from asking for help when I probably should.
Ha! Maybe she'd like to start on a wardrobe for me next! I think she's pretty cute really.
Stickup,Knitting kind of baffles me, too...as in, why do I keep trying to do it when my results seem to advise against it. Same thing with sewing. My efforts are proof positive that practice does not make perfect. That's why I only sew for my partner. He's happy with anything I make him. Have you tried whining rather than outright asking for help?
sukipoet,I think dear Minerva would jump out of her homemade-facsimiles of Birkenstocks if you asked her to make you a wardrobe. I find most crafters (esp. knitters, but I'll not mention any names here) are overjoyed to find someone to fob off...I mean bestow...their handiwork on.
Ouch, that remark about fobbing off handiworks stung a little. It is so handy to have a person to fob off to, not mentioning names.
Shirl,I was just speaking "generally," as a person who makes stuff myself and then has an overflow of things to stash about the house or in cupboards and closets. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it but, as the saying goes, "if the beret fits, wear it!"
haha, i love to sew - but for artistic purpose only (and just some straight lines)... my husband gave up to complain that i refuse to fix his buttons, but can spend hours to sew on paper;)
johana,That is so funny about your husbands's complaint! You go, girl! I once sewed a little nightgown for my baby daughter and the seams were so bulky she couldn't put her arms down. Yup, "artistic" sewing is the only way to go.
