Just another comfy shirt!

I love to wear a long-sleeved cotton shirt around the house.  I layer it with whatever is fitting for the day/weather…  A few days ago I found 2 of these shirts at a consignment store for $1 a piece.  Brand new with tags still on.  They are not 100% cotton but 50/50.  Oh well, I can sacrifice that.  All of the information on the shirt is printed on the front including a place for a name.   …so, I added my name this morning.

50/50 shirt

embroidered name on 50/50 shirt

my secret #...sssshhh!It’s time for me to put on the shirt and get busy!  I need to put a meal together for a small-[18]- group @ church and of course, I need to do the usual charming

  1. Hi Elaine! Whew, I feel like I’m finally catching up – some what, and have missed my visits to you. I love how you embroidered your name on the shirt – very cute! Oh, and all your knitting. Wow! Great leg warmers – I had a pair in the 80’s but definitely not as cute as yours! Love the hat too – darling pattern! Have fun charming away, can’t wait to see ’em when they’re done.

  3. Quelle belle chose cette idée de coudre son nom sur l’endroit de la chemise. Votre nom en forme de signature, avec une fleur… c’est super !
    Je vous remercie, Elaine, pour votre lien vers A Heart in Provence, j’en suis très flattée.
    Je me suis permise de vous citer dans ma rubrique “My readers
    Laeriss’s comment goes something like this: What a beautiful thing this idea to sew a name on the place of the shirt. Your name in signature form, with a flower … it’s great!
