My First Project Here On Cute:

I thought I would share with you ladies a gift I made for a lady friend of ours. Sharon is a domestic cleaner and visits us every Monday and I am always joking with her about the cobwebs she misses. So, I made this tabard for her and embroidered the two sides as you will see.

Pictures (1,2 & 3) are of the front. The top embroidery is by our very own and talented Basketkase Designs (thank you Vicki) and on the pocket by Embroidery Library. The font is from Brother and the words are my own.

Pictures (4,5 & 6) are of the rear of the tabard. The upper embroidery is a combination of designs by Embroidery Library, whilst the lower font is again by Brother and words by me.

I presented this to Sharon this morning by placing the tabard over her without her seeing the rear design. She is very pleased with it, although completely unaware of the message, etc., on the back. If I am not posting later today, please send cards and flowers to my local hospital!

My thanks for your amusing comments. Have any of you tried typing with your nose? It's very difficult but less painful than using fingers that have been trodden on!

by edithfarminer 14 May 2013

Such good fun, love it

by pennifold 13 May 2013

Hi Dennis, just come home and am watching Game of Thrones as I fell asleep last night in it! Great job on the Apron and I absolutely love the design of the cleaning lady by Vicki. Now that you have posted your first project I hope to see more of your work. Love and blessings Chris

It is lovely. Where do I send the flowers??? lol

by vickiannette 13 May 2013

yep it's great and so will be your black eye!

by cfidl 13 May 2013

When the first lady who passes from behind her on the street and says, "It's OK, you look fine..." she might think something is up. Fine job, I enjoyed your post immensely.

by jrob Moderator 13 May 2013

You certainly did a neat job. Tell us, was she bummed out when she saw this or did she smile? If she smiled, and I were you, I'd hide my toothbrush before she cleans for you next time. She just might have a "new" toilet brush cleaner. ;)

That's a good point! I shall have to keep a close eye on

by dennis999 13 May 2013

Thank you ladies for your most kind and advisory comments. When Sharon left our house today still wearing the tabard, she told my wife Ann that she was delighted with her gift and intended to keep it on to show her family. At this point, she still had not seen the back and so my fingers, etc are still intact! I have now moved on to my next project.

by debswebster 13 May 2013

Oh my goodness Dennis, you are soooo funny!!!!!! This is absolutely fabulous. I can imagine Sharon showing her other clients what a good job you did....and created by a MAN to boot. LOL

by asterixsew Moderator 13 May 2013

Congratulations on your first posting and what a super piece of work. Hopefully this is not your last posting and Sharon is very happy with her gift. So now we can all see that you do sew very well. Have a flower

by dragonflyer 13 May 2013

You are a brave man..but, I love it!

by highlandermom 13 May 2013

Cute and I love the humor. Actually wish I had a pair of shoes like design has.

by oaro 13 May 2013

i do love it you did great job

by pldc 13 May 2013

YIKES although you did a really good job I for one agree with the other posts DON"T STAND TO CLOSE WHEN SHE SEES THE BACK! ;)

by haleymax 13 May 2013

What a wonderful, thoughtful gift with a special message for her (I don't do cobwebs) and a surprise on the back also. I'm sure she will appreciate the time, talent and effort put into this gift.

by bevintex 13 May 2013

It reminds me of those notes that say "Kick me" someone was always trying to put on your back when you weren't looking. When she does discover the hidden message she may do just that. "Kick You" . I hope she has a sense of humor. One more piece of advice,Don't stand too close to her when she has a broom in her hand. lol

by rescuer Moderator 13 May 2013

Glad you decided to post in projects.
I think you have done a lovely job on this gift!
I do hope your hospital stay is a pleasant one. lol
