Yesterday I embroidered four shirts for a customer. Since I embroidered both the front and back it was like embroidering eight shirts. I had a nasty time with two of the shirts because they were made out of some type of stretchy lycra type material. They were Izod brand. To embroider stretchy material you need to put an iron on stabilizer on the material to keep it from stretching while you embroidery. This material did not take the iron on very well. To top it off where they wanted the back embroidery was over one of those new labels printed on the fabric. You know it is on the inside like in t-shirts and undies. When I put the iron on stabilizer over that area and tried to iron it down the label words melted onto the iron and stabilizer. Yuck. Thankfully it didn't mess up the outside.
Tomorrow is Independence Day. It is also the start of a week off for the General. I am not sure of our plans, but I am hoping to go to the lake for the day and then stop by my folks in the afternoon/evening. I would like to see some fireworks, but I don't know if I can stay awake that late.
The General told me when I got home this morning that I have cucumbers and zucchini ready to pick. Oh, that makes my day. I don't know if I will get in any sewing today. This is payday and I need to get lots of groceries. Our cabinets are bare. Captain Kitty also has an orthodontist appointment today. I promised to take them by the library also. Today will most likely be errand running day. I hope every one has an enjoyable and safe holiday.
Sew Long for Now!
