this week’s deliveries

quilt from auntie!

I’ve known she was making this, and I picked out the colors, but I still squealed with glee when I opened up the package yesterday…

Surprise, suprise, it is raining, so I didn’t get this outside to get a good photo…

But look, she did the back too!

I love how the circular stitching offsets the angularity of the design,

I will take better pictures and post them soon. Did I say that I love love love LOVE this quilt???!!!!


I ordered a bunch because I didn’t know which would fit, and there is free shipping and free return shipping. Some of you wanted the fashion show, so here you go…
boots (2)
The were delivered to work, in four big boxes! It was quick work to realize that the slippers and the two black boots didn’t fit. And the plaid ones, while kind of fun, aren’t quite what I thought. So it’s down to these two,

Love the attitude of the engineer boots, and the feel of the leather,

They were a little tight though, and after putting on socks, it was clear that the ones that fit best are the tall ones. Oh, and my friends told me that the short boots wouldn’t go with a skirt (says them, I would wear them with skirts), and that they made me look short. I’m a little over 5’8″, and I like to look tall. Probably wouldn’t wear these with knee length shorts though…

They are very tall. But do they make me look tall?

And, you must admit, this has a certain appeal…

Bed about midnight. Awake before 4. Dozed as the alarm went off. All day in interviews.

I’m more than VERY happy it’s the weekend! Hope you have a good one. I plan to relax. Relax as hard as I can…

    You ARE TALL – tall in height, tall in intelligence, tall in kindness, caring and love, and tall in that you’re the best daughter any woman could ever hope for or want. Not that I love you or anything — or am prejudiced or anything!! Much Love, Mom

    How could you *not* get the boots with the fly logo? Then again, maybe that’s more appropriate for our entymologist friend (the alliterative Kleptomaniacal Canadian Colleen with the Canoeing Cat!) :)
