It is sunny today and I got outside to do some work in the yard–the sun and the rake making a good combination for afternoon exercise. Yesterday was a different story–we went to the lake, with the thoughts of sketching. The temperatures were around freezing with blowing snow and punishing winds. I took this photo with my phone of the menacing but spectacular view from the shore. So one phone photo, no sketches. We shivered in the car and watched five guys try, without much luck, to surf the waves.
But back to the shoes…my left shoe is pretty much done, except for some tweaking in the heel area. Those rubber pieces are hard to make look right. I think I am happy with the colour of the mat they are sitting on — and have some ideas for the background. I am soon going away for a week where there should be lots of time for hooking so I want all the decisions made before I leave. I will be packing up the wool and my cutter and, if I am lucky, will come home with it much of it done.
