Val bought some very spiffy shoes during her Italian sojourn, and the clerk put them into a possibly even spiffier sack:
If I recall the story correctly, Val was given a choice of a sack or a box, and the choice was made the very instant she saw the sack. She does have good taste. Anyhow, as I was cleaning up the satchel pile in the mudroom today, I saw the sack (now placed in Val's closet) and was struck by what a great quilt it would make.
And the design on the reverse would make a matching pillow, don't you think?
