…my true love gave to me: a shirt with an “N” and a “B”.
Hello, all, and happy Christmas-is-over. Sorry if that sounds Grinchlike, but there’s something to be said for not panicking that I have to sew-and-bake-and-buy-and-wrap. But now that (most) of the handmade gifts have been opened, it’s time for me to catch up and post the rest of them.
I’ve stitched railway-themed shirts for my dad in the past, but it’s been a few years and I thought it was time he had a new one to add to his collection. I didn’t want to do just plain denim again, and when I saw coloured denim/canvas/something sturdy shirts at Mark’s, I knew I had found my blank slate. I opted for a mossy green one and added the Burlington Northern logo to the pocket – you know, before it became part of BNSF.
This isn’t the best picture, but gives the best representation of the colour:
And a close-up of the pocket:

I hope everyone had a crafty, happy holiday! 🙂
