Yesterday was my friend Maggie’s birthday. It seems like all husbands really suck when it comes to birthdays, and Maggie’s husband is no exception. When I spoke with her yesterday morning and asked what she was doing for her birthday she said that Zak (the husband) hadn’t planned anything, because he had to go to a happy hour event for work. Seriously?  Maggie was planning on staying home with her 3 kids (4, 3 and 8 weeks).

So I took it upon myself to show Maggie a good time for her birthday tonight. I picked her up with a beer in a travel coffee mug and took her to the nail salon for a pedicure.  It was perfect – we drank a beer, watched the Cardinals game and had our feet tended to. Then we went over to another friend’s house for the rest of the game.  It was a super fun night.

So now you are probably wondering how this all relates to this blog and embroidery.  I made Maggie a very cool t-shirt that I whipped up in my sewing room yesterday afternoon. A couple of weeks ago I bought this long sleeved, slightly shaped and dressy black t-shirt.  I then stitched out three iterations of the smaller size of my rose appliqué design rotated slightly differently.

Maggie loved the shirt, and I do as well.  In fact – I had a bit of a hard time parting with it.   But I think it was just the icing on the cake for a fantastic birthday evening.
