Embroidered Sheet Set

   What do you get your single, hard working daughter who has everything she may want or need, for her birthday?
A new set of sheets!  
Not any simple set but a nice smooth  450 count Egyptian cotton  set. With a beautiful design,  embroidered by Mom.

 I used an iron on stencil,  with DMC floss in simple muted greens, cream and blues for the design.  
Floral seemed to be the best for a single woman. 

 Although I'm not very good at fancy embroidered stitches I just did the best I could.  Once the design was completely finished I thought it turned out quite nice.  Might just do a set for myself!

 I just love simple white sheets and I'll have to admit my embroidery made them look very nice.

 There, finished and ready to pack up in her birthday box.  I still have time to get them in the mail (Oct 18th).
Sending my kids birthday boxes is fun for me.  I tend to over do their boxes.  But then that's what moms do!
Both my Daughter and Son were born in October.  Son, his box is in Juneau already, but his wife will not let him open it until the day of his birthday (Oct 6).  He lives in cold country and a new fleece jacket from LL Bean seemed perfect.  No embroidery there!
My little 4yr old grandson also has his birthday in October. 
His box is already in Guam.  He has a thing for 
"Buzz Lightyear"

 His box was stuffed with anything and everything  I could find with "Buzz" on it.  His entire birthday party was in his box.  From table cloth to hats and horns.  And of course his "Buzz" Halloween Costume, that I'm sure he will wear for his "Buzz" party.

Early "Happy Birthday"
to all my kids!

How fun! I love the sheets!! I have done embroidery on pillow cases, but never thought of doing it on sheets. I am definately going to give this a whirl. I'm sure they will all LOVE getting pkgs. in the mail. Hey, I still love getting pkgs. in the mail. Little guy will love Buzz. I have one that loves Buzz too.
