Birthday Gift

Robin asked me to embroider two shirts for her mother-in-law who has a birthday this week. She asked that I embroidery "Gram" on one shirt - that's what Eileen's grandchildren call her. And she left the design for the second shirt up to me.

I embroidered "Gram" on the cream colored shirt that Robin purchased. I played with my Explorations Lettering software and came up with this design for the shirt.

The second shirt that she got is green. Eileen loves flowers -- she told me once that she would teach Addie how to plant flowers and I could teach her how to sew. And who doesn't love butterflies. So I selected one of my favorite designs from Designs by JuJu's Jacobean Flutters design set. I decided not to embellish the design with hot fix crystals -- that's not Eileen.

The colors are much richer than this pic shows. Let's face it, I am not the greatest photographer.

Luck, love and laughter,
