Oh my goodness - look what came for me in the mail!

A beautiful handmade quilted stole from my Aunt Coni!

Look at this detail!

She asked me what color I wanted and I decided that I would get the most use out of it if it was multi-colored.  I'll wear it during ordinary time (which is technically supposed to be green, but it lasts so long I think it's a nice time to showcase artisan made stoles).

After the liturgical excitement, lunch just didn't seem exciting ...

Still delicious though - more leftover Mexican Soup.

I'm off to fold and pack laundry!


p.s. Happy Wear a Dress Tuesday!  I'm not currently in a dress because I'm packing, but I'm going to put one on for dinner!


  1. That is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I openly covet it...in the most Christian way possible.

  2. Hi Sarah,
    I'm wearing a skirt (suit) today and just now realized it is also Tuesday! So yes, I did it! It's still a little cold, but at least it is sunny, too.

  3. What an absolutely gorgeous stole. Such a precious gift and lovely keepsake. You will wear it proudly.

  4. what a beautiful and special gift. I'm sure you're going to treasure it for ever!
    PS: I did go back to Romania about 2 1/2 yrs ago. It's sad that we can't go more often

  5. That would make a beautiful stole for Pride Sunday!

  6. That is amazing! My grandmother is a quilter and gave me a gorgeous bedspread for my 18th birthday. And for our wedding, Lucas' aunt made us a quilt...

    So personal and special.
