My new shoe is an Aircast Walking Brace, size medium. I tore a tendon in my left foot several months ago, but didn't realize what had happened, so I walked on it in Santa Fe, in Chicago, and on my daily 4 mile walk. OUCH! When the pain got unbearable (I'm fairly stoic), I had an MRI and found out what I had
been making worse for 3 months. So now I get to wear this lovely boot 24/7
for 5 or 6 weeks. The good part? I'm 95% pain-free. The bad part? I can only wear shorts (NEVER HAPPEN), "Elephant Leg Pants" (as in the '60s) or skirts.
I do own a few of them...and will be making some more shortly!
I DO love this Luna Luz "Cheerio" Skirt which I blogged about several years ago
and have found a few more similar ones which are on their way.
The necklace that I'm wearing in the above picture with Paddy was made by my
friend Joan and given to me several years ago.
I'm lucky to have such a talented friend!
If any of you sewists have a favorite skirt pattern which DOES NOT involve pleats or gathers around the waist, let me know in the comments! Thanks...
I will be participating in Patti's wonderful Visible Monday show on her blog
later this afternoon...
