No Quilting Post......


Yes - I am among the living... I've even quilted some.  I just never have that camera around. 
But tons of stuff has been going on. 

First off--the photo.  I haven't worn heels in probably about ten years.  I completely lusted over these 3 inch heels. They have velvet ribbon and look spectacular on.  After about 3 months of lusting I bought them.  I bought them just because they were red and life would not be the same without these shoes.

We've had our first snow storm-- 6 heavy white stuff.  I was home alone and after trudging home from work I quilted the night away despite the flickering of electricty.

I went to Louisiana.  Vicki-- I ate my weight in Catfish and gumbo. My Mom is in better shape than I have EVER seen her.  She probably is because she has been taking care of my dad.  my Dad--- tough subject.  He's 82 and Pride bigger than Dallas Texas.  I walked lightly because more than anything else-- I knew that I didn't want him to dread me coming home and I didn't want him to remember me fussing about his health and what he needs to do to get better.

My MIL is coming Monday for thanksgiving.  It's going to be wonderful having family for the holiday.  More posts to come --- including quilt pictures.

Don't give up on me....I have really cool shoes....

Those shoes are stellar!!! I love them. Good choice.
I figured you were busy with your folks. Hope you had a nice trip down south. Nice that you can have your in-laws there for the holidays too.

The only snow we've had here was a dusting and that's it. Bitter cold today though.

Oh my goodness Mel hon, those shoes are just adorable - I can see how life would not have been the same without them.
I hope you have some stitching time soon.
*hugs*

Snow already? Then please don't wear your pretty new shoes out and about just yet. Snow and salt are tough on new leather. Looking forward to seeing what you're working on. Happy Thanksgiving!

Love the shoes!!! So have you worn them yet? You know I have never worn high heels (I did have earth shoes in college tho!), and now my feet would probably not work with them, but wish I had tried back in the day!!! (smile!) So hope you post a picture of you wearing them soon!

Hugs from Diane in Southern Michigan!
