September Song

There are flowers enough in the summertime,

More flowers than I can remember—
But none with the purple, gold, and red
That dyes the flowers of September!
                     ~Mary Howett  1799-1888

      It is hard to believe that September is already here.
      I spent the weekend with my little Birmingham girls, and Rachel had a PLAIN white t-shirt in Sarah's size.  We certainly couldn't have that, so I brought it home to jazz it up a little.
      The design of the little Teddy Bear came from a Sew Many Designs CD.  I moved the leaves around a little bit; there were 4 in the original design and they were spaced further away from the bear.  I deleted one with my Artista software, then scooted the remaining leaves a little closer to the bear so that the design would fit in my medium hoop.   I had to add sarah bear under the design in Child's Play; I heard that little endearment more than once this weekend from her Daddy and Mommy.  The design took a little while to stitch out; I had reduced the size and so the applique was a little more difficult to trim.
I used polymesh stabilizer behind the t shirt, added a layer of tear-away under the hoop, and solvy on top of the shirt.

My September Song this weekend turned out to be Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star, Sarah's current bedtime lullaby of choice.  And I can't imagine a more wonderful way to spend a Saturday night.
