My Christmas Present

Do you buy yourself presents? When circumstances permit, I do. Last Christmas I ordered a pair of slippers from Broadland Slippers.


They were so comfy, I asked them to make something special for my birthday. Sean and Mike mentioned that they had a piece of tartan available. I agreed before they they could change their minds.

While memorizing every photograph in Fiona Dreesmann's The Gentleman's Slipper I had the itch to add to my collection. I had something off the shelf in mind but nothing I felt strongly about. The boy's recommended this tartan with navy lining instead.


How could Toad, Laird of Dunnans Castle refuse tartan?

The Tartan look great! I've wanted a pair from Broadlands with the Family Crest on for a while but have yet to take the plunge. I shall slumb around in my Church's for a while longer.

I'm still snooping around trying to find someone to start needlepointing me a pair.

Backward as my memory can occasionally be, I'm quite sure Mrs. Blandings said she'd LOVE to needlepoint a pair for you, especially since you had the pattern in hand.

I would almost pay to be a fly on the wall when you ask Mrs. B. Forewarned, her reply would be singularly impressive.

Wait! He didn't have to ask. She already volunteered. It's in the Comments section of one of his posts, I too was astounded. Heck, am I going to have to go back through Max's comments?

Alright then, husband is waiting for GOP debate to start, no thank you on that score, I'll go dredge it up.

Ok, here we go.

Mrs. B's voluntary response to Max's shameless request on record partway down in the Comments section.

Having spent a good part of the afternoon signing up a stitcher, I now need to apologize to Mrs. B. Flo I am awed.

By Mrs. Blandings' graciousness? Yeah, me too! Max better hurry up quick though, that offer is over a year old, it might have an expiration date.
