Done and Done!

Yes, I got two shirts done this weekend. This shirt got complex because I needed to add the patches to represent the albums I couldn't get shirts for. I added the dates the albums were released and a detailed border.

The other finished shirt look like this before

and now it looks like this

Eighteen days to go - 6.5 shirts to finish. I will be working half days this week taking vacation so I have more time to work on this.

Friday Michael had a gig so I worked the merch booth

I was difficult to stitch - it was very warm and humid. I was busy at the booth too! I didn't get to bed until 12:10 a.m.

Here is the band before the show. They opened for Mark Farner who was the lead singer for Grand Funk Railroad.

Saturday I tried to keep focused so that I didn't feel bad about taking a break to go a graduation party for a couple hours. I ran out of a color of floss so I had to stop at Pat Catan's on my way home. Thank goodness they had the color I needed!

Sunday I was up early and stitching again. I took a break and mowed the front yard before it rained. Saturday and Sunday the Cleveland Indians kept me entertained while I stitched.

This morning I had a few extra minutes and I decided I needed to straighten up my floss a bit. I had it all over my big table and at the sewing machine where I do my stitching. I have no idea how I can make such a mess!

Now it looks like this

Much better!
