Red Letter Friday

What is special about today.  Nothing, really.  Just TGIF people!  Assuming that Friday is different than the rest of the days of the week for you.  It's not here.  Days here are all the same.  Chores, Gibby, and quilting all day, everyday.

What really is going on is that I noticed it's been awhile since I've blogged and as I looked around from my computer chair I wondered what I would take a picture of and what I would blog about.


This is my antique red wagon (not visible under all the clutter) topped with my latest WIP.  These are applique blocks for a new quilt that will be unveiled shortly.  As you can see, Gibby is impatient with me.  It's way past time for his morning walk.  He does have a way of getting his point across.

I do see light at the end of the tunnel.  I might get these blocks finished this weekend and then it's on to the last quilt for the Midwinter Reds collection.

It's actually getting to the point where we can stop focusing on these quilts and look toward next month when Polly and I will be in France.  It's doesn't even seem quite real yet.  The lists are being made and items are being crossed off.  Itineraries are starting to fall into place.  I have procured a packable raincoat (one that folds up into a pouch the size of a sandwich) and walking shoes for Paris.  YOU know what I'm talking about.  Something very comfortable, supportive, and maybe just a teensy bit stylish.  These are arriving today.....

Liberty of London Lace-up

If I'm going to be running around Paris in sneakers - then it will be these sneakers.

I got them here in the US on sale a couple days ago and they are sold out :(  But I did find them online at a UK shop.  Good luck.

Happy Friday.

Well I don't think I would run around anywhere without those sneakers. Those are to die for. Plus, they will look nice in Paris.

Helen said...

Those shoes seem perfect for you! And they look comfortable as well.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new quilt.

So nice to see someone else's dog likes to lay on quilt blocks. The shoes are so you and in Minnick and Simpson colors! wow.

Very cool shoes ~ tres chic. Or at least tres cool! They are "la bombe"!

At first I thought Gibby had that beautiful block in his mouth ~ aacck! Then I realized that you wouldn't have been taking a picture if he had. :)

Happy Weekending!
