I'd like to thank all of those visitors who commented about my awful week (month!), it really helped to be able to unload and read some kind words in return! June started out okay so fingers crossed it stays that way.

I made little progress on my ongoing projects over the weekend; did some handstitching and also pinned together the table runner that must be completed by next weekend for the wedding gift. Sunday I dragged my mom with me to the outlet mall to try to find something to wear to said wedding. I must have tried on 10 dresses and looked at a lot more, but found nothing that inspired me to part with my money. Summer dresses mostly do not appeal to me because they are generally sleeveless and, ahem, my arms are not ready to be exposed. So that means buying some kind of jacket or shrug. Mom did part with some money on some slacks and some shoes, but I came home empty handed. It's off to the big mall on Tuesday night, where I hope to find SOMETHING suitable to wear and to give the betrothed couple to go along with the table runner. Nothing like waiting until the last few days before an event to find something "perfect"!

Sounds like your summer is shaping up better than it sounded last month, Annie. I can't believe how much you get done working 3 jobs!! Your wedding gift looks great. Hope it turns out to be a beautiful weekend for the event.

You sound like me when shopping for clothes! It's hard to find something suitable out there that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
