My 16 year old daughter makes ladies shoes but she’s been so busy with school this year that she’s barely had time to be at her workbench. Today was a snow day so she worked in my shop and finished a pair of black flats for herself that she started a long time ago.
For those of you who might be interested, I’m on Instagram now. My user name is sorrellcustomboots
I got a cookie in the mail this morning! My favorite watch makers, Montana Watch Company, sent me a Christmas box. There’s also a nice notebook and pen, and I included my watch in the photo so you could admire it, but really this post is about the fact that someone sent me food that looks pretty.
These are actually trash–they’re the pieces I’ve cut out of a top band that will be inlaid.
I think I’m lucky to get to work with such beautiful shapes. It makes me happy.
I finished these boots yesterday and they’re mine! Dale took me out last night to celebrate my birthday and I wore them for the first time. I’ve named them “Sixteen Tons.”
This pair of boots will be picked up by their new owner this afternoon. I’ve named them “Jealous Heart.” They’re hunter green alligator, in case the color isn’t clear in the photo.
This pair of boots met their new owner today and all was well. I named them “On the Wings of a Dove.”
