Tata's Bata PT 2

As the ancient urban saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I obviously did something right when I gave my lil ole grand-lady a duster for Christmas last year. She has worn it CONSTANTLY since I gave it to her. In fact, there have been very few times I've seen her without it. Well..since she liked it so much, I made her another!!! No fancy modeling this time, I caught her right before she went to bed and she was tired. But she did have it in her to hold it up for a quick flick. Her slippers didn't match, but she plans on having her home attendant pick a jazzy pair. That's my grandma!!!

Again, the pattern is view B of Kwik-Sew 2172. The instructions are so fabulously detailed, right down to when to trim and overcast/serge seams, that sewing is as mindless and quick as boiling an egg. Bravo Kwik-Sew!

Some basic considerations can help a person to get the right par of shoes. Below are some of the important points that one may need to think about before getting the shoes. Style is not that important - majority of the people choose their tennis shoes considering only brand names and its looks. They don`t keep the importance of their feet up front most of the times. It can be a little hard to give up an awesome looking pair of shoes that matches your personality But when it comes to the usage, they should be chosen based on their functionality. The tennis shoes that one is purchasing should be able to protect and support one`s feet ideally. They are equally as good for keeping the water and weather away from your feet and both brands offer cheap golf shoes as well as their many expensive varieties. Shopping at FootJoy or Adidas can give you fashion, color, and a large line of shoes online and in stores.At any rate, be mindful of our golf game if you are a real competitor--know that shoes are the most vital part of your golfing attire. You need to shop around, compare prices. And get the most for your money. That doesn't mean you should opt for a pair of discount shoes that also have cheap quality. What would be the point of purchasing a shoe that is not comfortable to wear. If you care anything about your success in golfing, shop around. The Heel Box - it is an important part of the shoes.
