On a completely different subject, I thought I'd share with you my latest craft adventure. If you've been following me for a while, you will know how much I like blues, in particular turquoise and teal. I was lacking a pair of turquoise shoes for my wardrobe. As you can imagine, they are not that easy to come by. So I thought I'd give shoe dyeing a try.
I chose a pair of old shoes which I didn't mind messing up if it didn't work.

The finish is a little too shiny for my liking
and the shade of blue is not quite what I was after
but it's a process I can now repeat.
I decided I will buy a couple more dye colours
and mix them until I get the shade I'm looking for!
I like recycling.
