The past few months have been all about sewing for the men in my life. Friends were up first with a shirt for the Hunter and a custom quilt for the Musician. It was time to turn that attention onto the most deserving man in my life; Husband. Here we are in NYC on top of the Empire State Building a few years ago (before Baby J - look how relaxed and refreshed we are!)
While making the shirt for the Hunter I kept thinking 'why aren't I doing this for Hubby too?' So I decided to make him a shirt; but his shirt was going to be a Pendelton Woolen Mills shirt for Christmas. Yummy, yummy $15/yard (on rement!) wool. So I bought the fabric (easy) found a pattern (kinda easy) and started the shirt (not so easy!). Christmas passed...no shirt. Then the Finish Along at Quilter in the Gap started and I knew this shirt was going to get done. But wait! His February birthday passed...no shirt. Uh, oh it was getting close, and after a few mishaps I wanted to throw it back in the UFO pile! But I didn't I kept at it and finally it happened.
Happy to have it finished......it was more a labor of love for me than for Hubby. He likes it and all but I really don't think it's that big of a deal for him! Ah, sewing for me. I mean men.
ps. Rhonda find my original post about this shirt here.
