Shoes for the Christmas Fairy

This picture was sent to me by the lovely and very talented Catherine Ronan. Her work is exquisite.
I was thrilled to see the shoes she had made , from my pattern, for the 'Christmas Fairy'.
Aren't they just perfect?
Catherine is a member of 'Stitchin Fingers' and you can see so much more of her work there.

This 'cool' lady appears on one of a set of four stained glass panels called, appropriately, 'The Four Seasons'.
They were made by Charles Francis Blakeman in 1948. He lived and worked for a time in Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire and examples of his amazing work can be seen in the Court Barn Museum.
I'm hoping to do some workshops there next year, it's well worth a visit, so full of atmosphere and inspiration.

Hallo Annette
Must apologize for my long ansence ... entirely unintentional, by blogger feed has been playing tricks on me for some time.
I love the Christmas Fairy shoes and hope one day to be able to grow into just such a pair.
I have scrolled down your many posts and shall return to peruse them much more thoroughly.

OXO and happy days!

What beautiful shoes. Truly exquisite. Funny - we had one night away this year without the children on our wedding anniversary and we went to the Court Barn Museum! A lovely, little known museum!
