•••Time to talk about my newest Fashion-related Passion: SHOES!
No, not shopping for shoes, or wearing shoes -- MAKING SHOES!
I took a one-day workshop with Chris Francis at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in July.

|My sketch and fabrics.|
Maybe it was the tub of contact cement talking.
All the pieces have been sitting in the bag that I brought them home in.
I have not given up, however!
For days after the workshop, I started having vivid dreams about making shoes.
I looked at my bag of "culled from the closet and stuck in the garage shoes" with fresh eyes -- I had a bag full of parts to Frankenstein into new and better footwear!
I signed up for the Shoe Design class at Otis, and yesterday was the first day.

Wearing anything Amber? Have a Passion for something or someone?
