The hard part is done

I made these boots for myself in 2003. They’ve been resoled once, but this time the toe was worn through and they needed a new foot too. I tore them apart to fix a year ago, but putting on a new foot meant sewing a small part of each side seam by hand. Every time I thought of hand sewing the side seam I just couldn’t EVEN, so they’ve sat for months. Today I finally forced myself to do it and now I’m quite excited about getting them finished again.
This boot is titled “A Good Year for the Roses.”
