In the Queue Wednesday

Well, apparently I am a "queue novice". Comments on last week's "In the Queue Wednesday" post indicate that having a project in your queue for ONLY one year is NOTHING and the real pros have had projects awaiting them for many years... ;)
Hopefully that will take the sting off the fact that this shirt, destined for my youngest nephew, has been sitting in the queue since Christmas.
He picked this fabric himself, and the two things that it reflects about him are (a) that he looks very good in blues (and knows it) and (b) that he likes fast, exciting and dangerous things.

Now I do think that he - and our family in general - appreciates this country and has the highest respect for our armed services. But I'm not sure he would have picked the fabric if it wasn't for the cool fighter jets and bombers pictured on it!

My nephews do really seem to like the shirts that I periodically make for them. They often chose to wear my shirts on school picture day. Here he is in last year's school picture, wearing one of my shirts - this one in "American Chopper" fabric, sadly in gunmetal grey instead of bright blue, but full of pictures of fast, exciting and dangerous motorcycles... ;)

As for his Air Force shirt, don't worry, I'll get to it. It's in the queue...

The fabric, the nephew and the shirts are all darn cute. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Air Force (dad and BFF husband were both in the A.F). I'll be looking forward to viewing this shirt also.
