little blue slippers

She had asked - very politely, yet most decidedly, for pale robin's egg blue slippers and I had insisted on making a pair of lovely brown silke damask slippers for her...she looked me squarely in the eye and simply refused to warm up to them..... I've promised that today I am making her a lovely little pair of pale robin's egg blue wool challis slippers with tiny brown dots and brown wool silken puffs on the toes. She'll have real little shoes as soon as I stitch them up. We must listen to what our dollies have to say...I have found them to be the truest & best of friends.

Ah yes the fickle triflings of a wee lass..... I too know this feeling well. Bear creatures oft insist on attire yet unmade! They seemingly know our capabilities, and push us forth! To the work! And yet, when it is all done, and all are satisfied, what more can one want? In the end the lass or bear is quite pleased with the finery we hath wrought, and we too are pleased. And away they go....I hope to see this feminine creature and her shoes soon! Warmly, Pam www.kingfisherfarm.net
