No stitching updates, as I have been stitching on an exchange piece.
But, I finally went out to look for a dress to wear to my son's wedding. Yes, it's in less than two weeks -- but, I hate to go clothes shopping. Dragged the husband and daughter with me.... We found one! DH Chuck picked it out, I tried it on... It fit perfect!! Even daughter said it looked good! And now for the best part --I got it at Younkers. (My boss recommended looking there.) It was tagged at $128.00, but, it had a yellow dot -- wasn't sure what that meant. A lady told me that meant it was marked down. Yea!!! So, I took it to the check-out station, and asked the lady there if she thought it would be okay for a Mother of the Groom at an outdoor wedding. She told me it would be perfect! So, then I asked her how much it would be.... She told me with the discounts -- $16.00. Excuse me, did you say $16.00???? Yes -- it's marked down to $79.99, and then another 80% off the marked down price!!! Yeah, I bought it!!! My shoes I got at Walmart for $12.94 -- almost more than the dress!
Here is what the dress looks like:
I'm a happy little stitcher today! Now, I am trying to coordinate all the stuff for the rehearsal dinner... And, hoping my daughter's bridesmaid dress fits! Oh... and I guess I better think about the normal stuff like cleaning and laundry and dinner... LOL
Off to get another cup of coffee!!
Stitching on today: Exchange gifts and whatevers!
