>Well, I did finally get that celebratory coffee – except it wasn’t a coffee at all, but rather a Dragon [ chilli-flavoured ] Chai – when I met Marcie and Jeanette at the Coffee Bean this morning, and a nice time was had by all. Strangely enough, given that all three of us are quilters, I don’t recall there being any quilty conversation, other than a mention of the quilt group’s Christmas GTG last weekeend, that both Jeanette and I missed. I know we talked about blogging and family and Christmas and my birthday or lack thereof, and yes, okay, I will admit to a certain amount of cursing the A/C installers who theoretically are arriving at 8am Monday
… anyway, moving on to today’s visual component: some more images of the decos in my bedroom, seeing it’s the only bit properly decorated.
you can also see the vintage/antique ivory stiletto and the tiny quilt stencil that I bought in Paducah, KY, in 1996. I also have an even tinier version of it … somewhere … which is only about an inch high and therefore very easily misplaced
… old knitting gauges, mercury glass, pewter angels, and a garland made of vintage-style buttons
this wonderful icicle which is all of ten inches long
