I’ve made a little progress on the red shoes–I am well into hooking the second shoe and have confirmed the base colour. Taking a photo of the piece as you go is very helpful. Errors which you don’t see when you are working on it, jump out. Or a certain part just nags; not glaringly wrong, but not right either. A black and white photo helps even more. The second shoe needs revisiting, but I’m moving forward for the moment. The next decision is the background. I have some choices, so will report later in the week when I have made some progress.
The turquoise texture makes the reds “sing”. This is a fantastic piece!!! And much as I have been looking, I cannot find those shoes. 🙁
Hi Wendie! It is always so great to hear from you. I too like the turquoise base. I think I am going to do the background in squares, kind of like tiles, in a mid-tone.
I have had several questions about the shoes. They are a couple of years old now, very, very comfortable. I must admit I have more than one pair of this brand and all in red! I will have in a link in tomorrow’s post. They are Spanish but available all over.
