I was right about the checks

The new checks arrived yesterday. Whatever happened to putting them into actual little boxes? These were just in a couple of trays in a shipping box.

And yes, there was a substitution. I can live with this one, but it's still not the checks I liked. It has a sort of sharktooth wave pattern background in a slightly more indigo pale blue with slightly more color saturation (you'd never know I was an artist's daughter, would you?). And instead of a single blue foil line across the top, there is a silver foil wavy line with the space between it and the top of the check filled in light indigo. A very "water" theme going here, I would say. I don't like it as much as my old checks, but I can live with it. However, I don't think I'll reorder this pattern.

And of course, just to torment me, a catalog I just got that's mostly address labels now has checks. And one of their designs is "Antique," a plain beige with vintage-looking borders and fields. Argh!! Just missed it!
