I did some shopping today online. JCrew is having a major sale, and there's a code for an extra 30% off. There was a dress I had liked in the store months ago, and it was one of the things now on sale. So, I bought that, along with a blouse that looked cute. I had a JCrew gift certificate that a friend had given me, so it greatly reduced my costs.

Pictures from the site:




But I bought the blouse in white instead of pink.


I'm excited.


Dave gave me a pile of things to sew for him, and I've been slowly but surely working on them for him. The other day, I took a pair of his JCrew cargo pants and turned them into shorts. Today, I took a long sleeve Joseph A. Banks linen shirt, and made it into a short sleeve shirt. I'm not in love with short sleeve "dress" shirts for guys, but the fabric is really fine linen, and he had many holes in the sleeves from wearing it to work and what not. Now, it's a casual short sleeve shirt, and the rips on the sleeves are completely removed. I still have a bathing suit to fix for him, along with a golf club cozy and his leafblower strap (random!)


I took my clothing to his house the other day to wash since our machine is still out. My laundry that I washed there now smells like him. I can't describe it - but every washing machine makes clothing smell differently, even if you use the same detergent. But it smells good and makes me smile.

An order of shutterfly pictures arrived today, so I'm now behind on scrapbooking again, even though I just finished putting all my other pictures I had in an album. I can't win, hahaha.

No problem - I thought it over for 3 days before I ended up placing my order!
