Hello from up in the air! I am on my way to Geneva, Switzerland to attend a work related conference. I am traveling by myself which means my little ones are being looked after by my husband and his parents. (thanks guys!) So last night getting ready to leave town I stayed up WAAAAYY too late getting things organized.

Of course while I am gone, my daughter, Adelaide, has a birthday party to attend, so I had to get a gift together. Fortunately I have a lot of materials around to allow me to embroider a gift like this when I am in a pinch. But what to make?

The recipient, a girl named Emmy, is a tricky one. She is a fantastic little athlete who runs circles around everyone on the soccer field. Nothing prissy or fussy would work for a kid like her.

So I decided once again to use my retro flower initial appliqué design and personalize a t-shirt for her. The twist? using a muted orange t-shirt with a lime and yellow fabric (from the Fabric Nosherie) for the flower appliqué. I did all the stitching in a bright orange. Sound random? It actually turned out pretty fantastic. (And as you know from yesterday’s post, I don’t say that about everything).

Want to know what else I was doing until 2am last night? Finishing other projects and digitizing and stitching out some new designs so that I have something to blog about while in Switzerland and France…just in case these places don’t inspire me.

Wait, is that even possible?

This design is now available on the Machine Embroidery Geek Store
