The shoe hoarder i am

sometimes feels ashamed, i know it's rediculous, so many shoes when you live in such a small appartment?
All that space lost for hoarding fabric?!?!?
I love shoes since i was a child, and my parents always bought us the shoes of the very best quality.
Later, when i was a working single i bought at least one pair every months, and sometimes two......
I realised that i have only one pair high heeled know, and most of them are just flat and made for walking.
I think that shoes tell much about one's personality.
The baby shoes at the last pic are my baby shoes, my daughters also have their first pairs saved.
That's about shoes, handbags are also a big thing for me so in a couple of months.........
Do i share the love for shoes with somebody here in blogland?




























I made these blocks lately for my friend CB, and she will receive them next tuesday.
We're five to help her with this quilt.
A repro of and antique one , 1850-1870 from the International Quilt Study Center, Nebraska Lincoln.
Hope she"ll like it


Let me tell you about a weird thing that happened to me last week.
Maybe you remember me taling about CoreyAmaro and her blog TONGUE IN CHEEK.
I had spend an afternoon with quilting friends and embroiderers, who came for a fabric shopping tour in my area, and we sat down in a café, exhausted and i had a good look on what happened outside.
And look: thre was Corey and a friend just coming out of the Sacré Coeur gardens!
But it was already too late to run after them and say hello bla bla bla.
I left a message on her blog and yes , she confirmed being there at that very moment.
Go to her blog and see by yourself how she deals as an American women with life in France, her flair and elegance, her love for people and brocante;
I know i will meet her again, we're all tied together with invisible threads.........
A little less cold her now and next week will be a little warmer over all, i'm really longing for spring now.
Take care, Will V in Paris.
Last but not least, Lucy, QUILTING WITH THE PAST, has her stunning tulip quilt in the latest issue of QUILTMANIA.

I had a quick peek at Quiltmania in la Presse today. Didn't get as far as Lucy's quilt, but the magazine is on the things to buy list.

I too used to have a shoe fetish, but not any more as I don't get the opportunity to wear them.

Nice collection of shoes! I don't share your passion for shoes, however, I do have a weakness for bags.

Fantastic blocks, I love the pattern and the colours. I'm not bad with shoes now but I used to be when I worked. I must get that Quiltmania, I have started a few of the tulip blocks.
