The Fairy shoe factory... minus the elves...

Shoemaking continues in earnest in Fairysteps land...
We have a very purpley pile of blackberry inspired treasures waiting here...
And one of my favourite colour combinations. These will be for QUINCE in smooth larch green leather with grainy rust nubuck insoles and matching ribbons... bet they don't stay in stock long!
Ive also cut into my new Peanut Butter leather... Mixed with the Larch its rather amazing. Ive managed to sneak in a few bags and pouches too... I mean, whats a girl to do when they are just crying out to be made!

Hoping very much to finish a couple of bags for tommorow and thats my wine coloured thread off the machine. Next up is buff thread for these beauties above... I should be listing shoes next week. Its been sooooo long that Im all of a dither with excitement!

Woolly note: Currently designing a pattern for a crochet beret. Have to admit that its taking forever (there have been 3 unpickings so far...) but its very pretty and I think you may like it... with this optimistic feeling of hope I have been carefully drafting the pattern as I go so that I can reproduce it again, and again, and again...
