Machinery and the flu don't mix

Never use heavy machinery while suffering from the flu...I include my sewing and embroidery machines in that category.

I've been suffering for the past couple of weeks, and somewhere in my deluded state I thought it would be a good idea to embroider some t-shirts....

yeah right.

I left my embroidery machine on it's own, didn't stabilize the t-shirt correctly and didn't preshrink anything.

I blame this dang cold, not my laziness.

Good thing I stopped it before the rips became worse:


OOPS!  So I just embroidered the design on a  piece of  fabric to "patch" it:


And sewed it on to the t-shirt using the preset heart stitch on my machine


But as you can see...that preshrinking would have been a really good idea!  Now I've got a wrinkly t-shirt and all kinds of tugs around the "patch".  Ah well, the 3 yr old likes it anyway...

I'll try again once I'm feeling better...
