Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Sarah had a t-shirt that she has long outgrown, but many times in the last few months it has seemed to reappear on my visits to Birmingham. Her "present" t-shirt, as she called it, was soft and comfy, so as I was choosing a design for her Christmas t-shirt, a "present" seemed the only choice.
The first shirt that I did was pink and green with a touch of gold. It is Sarah's choice of colors and I hope she will enjoy wearing it. The gold lamee was a scrap that someone had given me, and it made a really cute little bow. I used a gold metallic thread to satin stitch around the bow, and it stitched just fine as long as I slowed the speed of the machine down. I added her name to the side of the gift.
My second little gift t-shirt was made for little Miss Amelia, whose Mamie has been under the weather and just hasn't felt much like sewing this Christmas season. While Mamie chose colors and fabrics, I ran the machine and we sewed up skirt to match.
So Mamie and Goggie drove to visit sweet family and deliver the Christmas attire yesterday. I sure hope it fits!
