I didn't get as much in on The Herb Gatherer as my mind said I could on last Friday. :-) And I didn't pick up HoHRH at all as I thought I wanted to. I LOVE working on this piece and I can't remember the last time I had so much enthusiasm for stitching so I figured I just needed to go with it. It was hot and humid as predicted and I ended up shopping for huge stretches of time. And I put the blame squarely on my friend Peggy's shoulders.
I've been invited to attend Peggy's daughter's wedding in November which is being held in Jamaica and Peggy innocently mentioned on Friday that she wanted to get some summer stuff on clearance while there was still a good supply at the stores. I thought about it and I also wanted some nice stuff for vacation in my new size. So I ended up at the mall both Saturday and Sunday. And I did find some great sales. I found a dress for the wedding on super clearance from White House Black Market. Then I hit the Talbots outlet on Sunday and got a huge bag of clothes for $120. All in my new size of 2! I love to say that. :-)
Now I just need a sun dress or two and I'm all set for vacation. Any way, the point is, I didn't have as much time as I thought I would for stitching. I was too busy spending money. :-)
