I do like the embroidery--it's just the bleached color I thought I would not like. But I wore it today and I am thrilled to report that I liked it much better on.
I love the denim jacket with the gold and the metal rivets! Usually I find denim a bit too heavy, but this jacket is lightweight and a great dark blue color. I wondered why it was so much lighter than the above jacket so I checked the label and found out it's only 61% cotton, 38% polyester! and 1% spandex. I had no idea it had poly in it when I ordered it! Nonetheless, I love this jacket! Moral of story: Don't be a poly snob!
I wore this one yesterday with the metal necklace I got awhile back. How lucky was I to have a necklace that went so well with this? I am happy, happy with this purchase!
Last week I wore the animal print jacket to work. I really like the detailed tucks on the lapel. Again I lucked out and already had a shirt and a necklace that were a near perfect match.
This jacket even came out of the package with no wrinkles--gotta love that!
I also ordered a few items that I did not show you--like this fleece shirt.
Actually I bought two of them -- purple and red.
Other than the fleece, I am pretty pleased with everything I bought. That's a good thing because I never send anything back...at outlet prices, it's not worth paying the SH to return anything.
This afternoon I am working on finishing this table runner that I made last year.
All I have to do is quilt it on the machine and then but a binding on.
I also opened all of these little envelopes that contain extra buttons for all the clothing I order. I wish they would package the extra buttons in clear mini bags -- it takes a lot of time to open each envelope to see what is inside if I need to replace a button. So I took all the buttons out and put them in a see-through plastic jar (a parmesan cheese container)
Now I am off to cook up 5 lbs of burger. We will have spaghetti for dinner and I will also make a hamburger veggie soup for later in the week. The rest of the cooked burger will be frozen so when I want to make spaghetti again I will just thaw a container of burger and be ready to go.
What did you do this weekend?
