My Tee Shirt Voyage
At the time I was learning how to communicate with over sized tee shirts my mother-in-law had moved in with my sister-in-law , in weak health. When my hubby and I were first married 30 years earlier his Mom worked in a sewing factory. Out of the blue one day she made me a red , white and blue tank style top out of polyester. I Loved that shirt so much that I wore it till it looked like it was a "grass skirt". It was cool and comfortable and it came from my "Mother-in-law's " hands, just for me . How much more special could it be???? I "hinted" for more, But when you worked long hard hours like she did - that left little time for other things , other than survival. I just cherished that little shirt the rest of my life - UNTIL NOW! I was learning and Mom was needing some new gowns! Every gal likes new clothes to lift their spirits and so I modified the shirt pattern and lengthened it to be a "night shirt gown".
With my new friend , Bernina Deco - embroidery machine - I embroidered an angel on the front - and told her that we all need a few angels to watch over us.
