Crafty Sunday, and new spring shoes

I've spent this weekend making a little gift for my sis's birthday, she asked for vouchers but I hate to give them without a little something, hence this little bird in the style of the lavender birds in CK's Sew! book. I think the scrap of fabric is an Amy Butler offcut, but could be wrong, the wings are felt and the beads were picked up in John Lewis recently, a huge pot of pink, gold and plum waiting for the right jewellery project.

New shoes are very exciting in this house because I have big feet and find shoe shopping a trauma at the best of times! I'm overjoyed that New Look now sell size 9 shoes and so when I saw these beauties in my size I had to have them! They fit like a glove and I love the range of flowers and vibrant colours, no more clumpy trainers for me! They're probably the prettiest shoes I've ever had, these and a new haircut have really boosted my mood this weekend! I'm back to a short blonde crop again which is lovely and light, and now I have a spring in my step too!
