A whole two weeks has gone by and in the "Bright light of Tomorrow Morning" is the day to present the finished product of glorious red shoes.
|Mine won't look like these, but here is my inspiration!|
More time was devoted to researching and visualising the sewing of Sparkly Red fabric onto my shoes, thinking over possible difficulties and getting the procedure straight in my imagination.
This visualisation is the most important step. Without a precise idea of how I intend to attach the sparkly red fabric to the shoes, I will mess it up. Cut it wrong and end up not figuring it out until the third or fourth try and I am SO over that pathway. And over the unpicking. I detest unpicking.
This visual storyboard of sewing steps in my head of what I expect my hands to perform is a vital step. All going well.
The next two days were lost to illness and chaos, which is almost an expected factor in any plan of mine and was okay. (Yukky, though. )
The day after I woke, bright and with only a little cough, was ready to get into action! Get moving on the housework, make those calls, do the shopping, race here and there and "Oh, how did it get to be bedtime already! Tomorrow. I will focus on the Red Shoes tomorrow."

I will make a sewing Diva from this child, yet. She has such a good eye.
At about 9pm, I found the shoes. And promptly went to bed.
Party Weekend! Fun! Egg cracked! Trauma, grief and really a lot of growth for the little Princess.
Maybe during the week, I will sew...
|Thus, the red shoes are begun.|
*still not finished, but I have tonight, yes?!*
