We have been to Melbourne for a couple of days. The reason was to visit our daughter and celebrate her birthday. However, I managed to sneak in a spot of shopping.
Last year I got rid of my knee-high black boots as the heel was simply higher than what I was comfortable wearing. I had been debating for some time about replacing them and I finally found a pair that I was happy would suit my needs.
I wore them for most of the past two days, including quite a bit of walking and they are very comfortable. I am really pleased with my purchase and expect they will last me quite a few years.
My other purchase was at a small, independent fabric shop in the northern suburb of Ivanhoe. There were lots of beautiful winter fabrics but I bought a piece of linen to make something for myself next summer – probably a blouse of some description.
I fell in love with the colour and pattern of this piece and am sure it will make a gorgeous garment.
