    Fabric! Or clothing-to-be. 16 yards of black linen and 4 yards of gray linen. I want to play around with making some funky lagenlook style garments. I'm hoping to end up with a cropped jacket, long jacket, skirt, and pants from the black. And a tunic length top from the gray.

    Success with all the sewing. The new simple black dress is supercomfy. I think maybe get some similar fabric online and hand sew one after the holidays.

    Henna powder, to color my hair. It's way overdue for a freshening up.

    Shoes, and a review:

    6c6728f8cb07b5eb11c2fa7ba35b632c.jpg

    The brand is Naot, the style is Tellin, the color is "volcanic red". Naot is an Israeli brand, they sell handmade high-quality shoes in the comfort/orthopedic style.

    I found these being sold pre-owned but not worn on Ebay (otherwise would be out of my budget).

    The fit for Naot is tricky. They use European sizing and run a bit small. Usually I wear a 42 in European sizes (I'm a 10.5-11 W in American size shoes). But have to buy a 43 in Naot. They fit me like Rieker and Arcopedico brand shoes. I'm just able to wear them. If my ankles were an inch bigger or my feet a tiny bit fuller, they'd be a no-go. I can't get my feet into the 42s.

    And these boots are hard to get on. I have to kind of twist and pivot my foot into it, and they are very form fitting. But comfortable in that they completely support your foot and ankle and are made from soft cushy leather.

    I'm unsteady on my feet, so I need structured shoes that my feet don't slide around in. They have a very structured heel cup that keeps your foot steady.

    IMO, unless you order from a shop with free returns, I would try them on in person. Try a size up from your usual. And they will work for a standard wide, but not a very full foot or ankle.
