Ten years would seem too short a life for leather shoes. I like these and they have served me well. But they are Has Been. Today I farewelled them to the rubbish man. Why? Well look at the soles; the heels have holes and they squeak and leak. The uppers are still good but the sole has gone.
So as a "pick me up" I fetched out the Christmas Ornament books, selected six and found appropriate fabrics. Tonight I will sort out the floss and kit them ready to go.
