T-shirt Order Complete

It's been a big week for t-shirt embroidering! Unfortunately, Heather from Mushmina was unable to make the trip up here to see us before she goes back to the U.S. in a couple of days (it is quite a trip, with the long, winding road, and she has been super busy since she came to Morocco, so I can't say I blame her), so she asked the ladies to send them by mail by Friday (yesterday).

By Thursday the girls still had quite a bit of work to do so they worked overtime to get the order completed. Here are some pictures from Thursday of the girls working on the last of the shirts.

As you can see from the picture of Fatima and Hannan (above) and Omima (below) they've been working two girls to a shirt at a time so that they could get the shirts done more efficiently (Hafida later joined Omima to work on the other hoop).

Mirrium (below) is very shy and I had a hard time getting her to stay still and stop giggling to take this picture.

The ladies have a lot of fun while they work and carry on long and lively conversations, but on this day they were mostly business.

And finally, below are a couple more photos of the finished t-shirts. To see more T-shirt photos and to learn more about the background of this project, check out my previous post Embroidered t-shirts and new banner photo.
