Sooz Does It Again!

"Keep Calm and Read Gabaldon"
OK so I told you we went to Fairfax to see Diana Gabaldon this past weekend.  But did I mention the shirts?!?

Holy cow.  For those of you who don't know MOP-bud, Sooz, she hand-made adorable dachshunds last year for Diana - as well as Tracey and myself.  Well...I'm glad to say that Sooz has done it again!

Look at these gorgeous shirts Sooz made for Diana!  They are spectacular!!

They are beautiful!  She does all the embroidering on a Janome 350e Memory Craft Embroidery Machine and produces the designs with software called Embroidery 5D with added alpha characters from (Jacobean letters).  I cannot tell you how amazing the colors are up close!

Telling DG about Sooz's shirts...
Sooz sent the shirts to my house and I carried them on to Fairfax for her.   I let Diana know that Sooz made them for her and did the embroidering herself...and when I said "Sooz is the one who made you the..."  she said "dachshunds!"  and remembered right away, which I thought was verra cool, sassenachs.

Tired, post Fairfax...yet
PROUD in my
custom-made shirt from Sooz!
Sorry for the wrinkles but they were packaged up with a pretty little bow for most of the trip.

My most sincere THANKS go out to Sooz for not only making them for Diana, but for making one for Tracey and myself as well. :)
