Continuing with my shoe series, I decided to do a 4-inch paper pieced sandal block. But it is too darn cold to wear sandals now. I’ve been known to wear socks with sandals in the winter. I swear the sandal-sock combination keeps my feet warmer than wearing boots.
My favorite textile teacher, Lydia Van Gelder
, was well known for wearing wild hand-knitted socks with sandals. I guess I am emulating her.
