Shoe alert!

One of my friends (Sharon) and I went to see the Sex and the City movie yesterday, and loved loved loved it! I'm not going to give any of the storyline away at all - so sorry if you were hoping for some hints. In the spirit of the movie, Sharon and I indulged in a little shoe shopping beforehand. I was drawn in by these little red numbers. They look washed out in the picture, but they're a mixture of red patent and red suede leather, and are entirely super cute! Sharon found some darling ankle boots. Myer were having a sale, so it would have been irresponsible to leave them behind!

On the quilty front, this is a project I am helping a customer with. It was a kit she ordered, and I'm saying nothing more than this: The pattern that arrived with the kit was a waste of good paper. It has been a real struggle for her to put together as a reasonably new quilter. The border was just not working out, so I'm fixing it for her, and then I'll quilt it. It seems to be going okay for now, and I'll see how flat it is when it's time to quilt. A very disappointing experience for her.

And last of all, a gratuitous kitty pic. Amy was fooling around with the camera, and found the kitties being pals. I don't think they like posing for the camera much ...

This is a long weekend for us, so I plan to spend some quality time in the sewing room, and would really love to do some organising in my closet. I wonder if it'll happen??

Great shoes. I love shoes but unfortunately, after three broken ankles in eighteen months, have been told I need to wear lace-ups all the time. Yuk! Really difficult to find anything fun. That's a cute picture of your cats.

such a shame your friend had that sort of experience with a pattern - thank goodness you were on hand to restore her faith in her own capabilities

Love the red shoes!! And the quilt--well, I think my friend just finished one similar to it out of a book. I'm glad she has lots of patience, I would have thrown it away!

Hehehe, an old saying round here.....Red shoes, no knickers! LOL

What a shame the instructions for the quilt wee no good, I hope it hasn't put your customer off.

Those red shoes are wonderful! Love the photos of your shoe acquisitions. Yeah, the cats look a little frazzled by the photo session, just like my orange cat looks when that happens.

Ohh love the shoes! Hope your friend hasn't had such a bad experience that it's put her off for life!

That's a neat quilt top you're helping with. Too bad it came with such poor directions but thank goodness she had you to help her with it and keep her going.

Lovin' the kitty pictures. ;)

Enjoy your weekend. *karendianne.

The quilt you are helping a customer with is very interesting. Hope you will post a picture of the whole quilt later on.
I have not been to see the movie but it certainly has been getting rave reviews.

I'd love to see a pic of the entire customer quilt. I'm a 30's fan and the pattern looks interesting.

Good Luck with it.

Cute shoes! I hardly ever wear heels anymore but did slip on a pair of wedge sandals the other night in Toronto along with a skirt for a night out - it was nice to wear something other than jeans!
