A Winter Exchange New Shoes and Happy New Year

Today is the reveal day for the Needlecraft Haven Winter Exchange. Here is the beautiful little pillow I received from Jane (LHN's Blue House in Winter). Thank you Jane, it's gorgeous.
I stitched a free design from Couleurs d'Etoile for Kate and now I can't find a picture of it anywhere on my computer. Rats!
I've simply got to share this picture of my new shoes though.
Lace. Converse.
How amazing are these?
Incidentally it is ridiculously hard to take a good picture of your own foot, hence the awkward looking angle.

I know there was something else I meant to include in this post but for the moment it eludes me so it only remains for me to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

Oh, Christine - whenever you say you've got new shoes to show, my mouth gets all watery. I still haven't forgotten those sinful little red Mary Janes! The lace tennies are too cool! I cannot imagine how you find these things. Beautiful little pillow; you're very lucky. Happy New Year to you and yours!

Great shoes! And nice exchange too.

As a lacemaker, those shoes are soooo neat! Love the pillow you got in the exchange. Hopefully the photo of what you made will surface soon.

Wishing you a joy-filled and creative 2013!
