Here’s a link to the article about me in American Craft magazine.
I’m sitting in the OKC airport, waiting to fly to Denver and then on to Jackson Hole; I’m going to be a judge at the Western Design Conference. This morning I panicked, thinking that maybe the judging was today instead of tomorrow and I’d messed up on choosing my travel date. Then on the way to airport I decided that perhaps my flight time was 11:50 instead of 1:50 and I’d missed it. This is why traveling gives me migraines.
I didn’t get my August newsletter sent out until yesterday (the first of September), and then I forgot to post it so now it’s really late. I will try to do better next… ooops, THIS month.
Here are the completed Austrian coat of arms boot tops.
I dyed and finished the soles, and now I’m starting to build the heels.
Yesterday I pegged the soles on the two pairs of cowboy boots that I’m making this month.
Here I’ve marked where the first row of pegs will go. This is a #5 Stitch Marker.
Each cowboy boot sole has a double row of wooden pegs.
Here’s a close-up the Austrian coat of arms boots. The boot tops are completely stitched! I’m thinking of naming this pair “Take These Chains From My Heart.” I can’t think of a good classic country song about Austria.
