Baseball T-shirt

Here is the second of the t-shirts I embroidered and mailed off to Kelli on Friday—a simple baseball. Last Thursday night I attended a Sidewinders baseball game and thought a simple baseball design would be a good boy thing to do.

I merely drew around a soup bowl and did the embroidery. By the way, I do all my embroidery projects by hand as I do not have a machine that will do it for me. It’s all good—I’m happy stitching away with my very own little fingers.

Kelli suggested including a 3x5-inch card with a note translated into Spanish if going to Nicaragua or Portuguese if going to Mozambique. I sent a t-shirt for each country and simply translated “Peace and Love” into the applicable language.

Today I’m finishing a fun new project I’ll share tomorrow.

Wonderful Junie!
Although I have an embroidery function on my machine, I love to stitch by hand. I think you stitch more love into it by hand!

The baseball looks great! But I really like your presentation of the shirts. I wrote Kelli and got her address... need to get to Target today and see what they have. I just took apart our 'feather bed' in my excitement for warm weather... 39 degrees yesterday and snow this morning. Yuck! I'm going to start a summer table runner this afternoon... inspired by my own blog.

We haven't gotten to Oshkosh yet to see about those Victoria mags. for you. It's an hour drive each way so some sunny day...

I should have you be my yenta too. You are by far my best marketer! Thank you June. The shirts are perfect and will bring such happiness to two little ones.
