Shoe Radar and More Quilting

Last week, Sunday, my sister and I went shopping.  My sister has shoe radar and she goes tearing off to the back of the store.  She comes back with these.  Of course there was plenty of hemming and hawing over them, but I told her firmly they were only $13 (turned out they were $15 after tax - on clearance 10.65 euros for my friends over the big wide blue) and I knew she'd regret them for more years that that little bit is worth.  I think she's worn them at least 3 times since that fateful day.  Aren't they the cutest things?

Today I spent the morning researching snowflake patterns and the afternoon working on the stockings, filler, text, and so on for the Christmas Hodgepodge Quilt.  I'm very nearly done with those parts of the quilting with only two trapezoids left to go.  No sense in taking a picture of what you've already seen so I thought I'd show this one instead.  Hope you all had a great weekend.

The shoes are a find for her and I am glad she got them, but did she find something for you? I like shopping with my husband because he finds great stuff for me, my daughters and grand daughters. He even found a pair of dress shoes for himself for $7.50. Nunn Bush no less. He is a great shopper.
