Shoe Making 15.2.25 : Assistant Report 16

Francis_20150220_1
Unfortunately, this week I had to take two steps backwards with my boots. On four of the stitches in the welting, I placed them too far on the outside of the shoe, thus compromising the integrity of the welt. So this image shows a progress shot of me taking the welting off. Once the welting and thread is fully removed, I will try the welting for a second time. The good news is, usually if there is a mistake made in the shoemaking process there is usually a remedy for it that does not compromise the finished shoe.

This is a home-made tool to mark the length of the sole stitching. One half is an old screwdriver and the other half is a new wooden handle which I combined.

A mid-afternoon treat at Cafe Giacosa in Palazzo Strozzi. Yum!

Interesting architectural details on the façade of this building, near Piazza Della Repubplica. I really like the women’s faces protruding from the columns.

A lovely drawing and frame at an antique market this weekend in Piazza Ciompi. It’s very inspiring always being surrounded by beautiful art, antiques, and architecture in Florence!
