Special Requests of the Week
Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design
suggestions, and we thank you for sending
us tons of
terrific ideas, which we regularly incorporate into the weekly design
themes. As a way
to expand on designs for specific quests, this space is dedicated to
the "Request of the Week."
Here are two requests this week:
this week's requests features a humorous twist, which we
took to heart, because so many
of us can relate to this
little quote. Karen from Australia wrote,
�I have a little flower pot lady with the inscription
'Give me Patience, but Please Hurry!' My sister has
always admired it because she
liked the little quote on
it, and I would like it, too." Thank you,
Karen for this clever idea.
those who find patience is a virtue that is
often difficult to practice, this is the perfect design
for a T-shirt, a gardening tote, a grocery bag, wall
art, and more.
Kathy belongs to a handbell choir in her church. The
choir's "uniform" shirts and the handbell design they
have been using are seven years old now, and she would
like to refresh them, especially for a big celebration
at her church this spring.
"My bell choir is
playing a piece we had commissioned especially for this
event," she said. "We need
something fresh, new, and exciting.
For this shirt project, the size
would be about 3 x 3.
I can add the choir name
The bells are surely ringing for Kathy's choir, and all
the handbell musicians in the land.
