Some have requested that I show the creative changes I made to the linen camp shirt which I got at the thrift store. Here are some photos showing the embroidery (with natural linen thread) and the crochet trim I added. I was able to lenghten the sleeves about 3.5 inches this way! [Cropped fabric from the lower edge of the shirt and used it on the sleeves.]

I'm getting started on the bird themed art quilts today......Jane LaFazio's online class.

The shirt is fantastic! I love the changes you made to it. I wish I was better at sewing because nothing ever fits me right.

Your little bird quilts look like fun.
