Jelly rolls

Last night, for the first time, I started working with a jelly roll. Well! Nobody told me what a mess it makes! Yikes! The pinked edges shed all over. And of course I was wearing black. :-P

Ah youth. I can't remember the last time I could wear heels like these! ESD found them at DSW Shoe Warehouse...for 70% off! And....she can walk in them! Woohoo!

In between shopping expeditions she's also managed to get more sewing done. On the design wall are her Biker Betty Boop table topper and the beginnings of a charm square diaper bag.

The air conditioning in the old part of the house is broken again...sigh. And of course it's the middle of another heat wave. We've been spending most of our time in the cool sewing room end of the house. Poor Ngaire seems to be feeling it more than the rest of us this time. If she isn't panting hard, she's zonked out on the floor. At one point she was so relaxed I poked her to make sure she was all right! I got a baleful look but she didn't move so I stepped back and forth over her snapping photos.

Oh, I am so jealous of those boots! And I'm just so jealous of everyone who can wear heels of any sort, or sandals in hot weather, or strappy shoes, etc etc, the list just goes on. Having broken my ankle three times in eighteen months a few years ago I now have to wear flat, lace-up shoes at all times, with orthotics in. Yuk!!!

Those heels are awesome!!
And I´m so glad you shares the info on the jelly-rolls! I´ve been wondering if I should try them, but now I´m thinking no.... Also, I guess you have to sew before they are washed??

Great boots and great legs...I wish I could wear stuff like that still...but I think those days are gone.

Poor Ngaire looks 'flat out!'
