No Way in Hell???

Yeah, I talk tough, but then I love a challenge, so guess what I finished yesterday at 5:00 pm? You got it...the last minute, under pressure, down to the wire embroidery job. Tom knew I'd do it. Me, I wasn't so sure. Here's the bow case:
I digitized the Portland Fire logo with my Embird software. I have to say I was pretty impressed with myself. Digitizing can be a struggle sometimes, but this project while time consuming, went pretty smoothly. Here's a closeup of the logo:
I was thrilled to find that NetFlix now has Magnum PI, so a young Tom Selleck kept me company while I worked. How could I not be inspired???
My serger is behaving more like it should and of course the ITY top from hell actually is kind of cute. The construction is not my best work, but I should get some wear out of it, if only for the summer. I skipped out of Zumba tonight as it is my Monday, it was a 10 hour shift and I'm tired! I almost fell asleep on the ride back to campus from Portland...good thing I wasn't driving! Besides, as one darling little man in an Italian garden showed me...you have to stop and smell the roses sometimes.

The embroidery looks great! I'm guessing it's a retirement gift--he's going to be thrilled with it.

Nice bow case! I feel your serger pain - mine is refusing to stay threaded, and I'm going to have to take it for a ride this weekend.
