attention all you larger calf friends

I get a lot of comments when ever I wear my Frye boots...
most love them, some are often envious...wishing they had a pair; some are just sad, because their calves are just too big for knee boots.
I am fortunate to fit in Frye boots....I do think that the calves are a bit bigger than most boots.
Well, I am pleased to inform all of you well endowed calf woman...they now make boots that are "extended calves"

equestrian boots by Eddie Bauer




Ann Taylor Loft, J Crew, and Eddie Bauer are just a few that have these "new" boots.

Handmade Valentines & Pillows

I love how my Valentine's are turning out....
they are petty easy and quick to make.
The hearts are from hand cut paper, and sewn to muslin, and/or cotton...
then sewn on a heavy water color paper.
Some are adorned with a vintage button, and one a straight pin....
these will be going out to my single friends....
or friends who may need a little extra "happy" on V-Day!



Pillows for my friend Elizabeth.
I used 4 different Angela Adams fabric, and another striped fabric that I had.
They are accented and backed with a green velvet.
Overall, I think this is my best pillow work yet.
They are very straight, and sewn well.....I hope she likes them!
