The Red Shoes
Inspired by the colors of autumn and all of the beautiful folk art embroidery I've been drooling over online, I drew up my own little folk art harvest pattern, which hopefully will turn into something nice. It is inspired by the wonderful folk patterns of eastern Europe, particularly Hungary and Poland. I've seen so many beautiful things, and I wanted to create something of my own in an autumnal palette, which I haven't seen a lot. Most things are done in primary colors, which are very beautiful! I just thought it might be nice to see this style in a different range of colors and themes. Now, the question is, are my stitching skills up to the task? Yipes!
And in keeping with my new obsession for all things folk arty, while shopping for a pair of boots the other day, I saw these!
Needless to say, I did not come home with a pair of boots, but a gorgeous pair of red clogs! They make me so happy when I wear them, I'm like a little girl with her first pair of red shoes.....come to think of it, this IS my first pair of red shoes!!!
