The State of the Shirt Deconstruction

and now I'm swapping shirt tails. This month was neutrals, I received this lovely assortment from Lucy in Indiana and if you look closely, Lucy sewed the envelope closed!!! I really liked that touch and instead of 12, she sent me 15!! very generous.
In turn here are my 12 that I mailed on Wednesday to Tissy in Missouri, hopefully they have arrived safely.
Here is my basket of shirts still to be deconstructed, the peach one on top was donated by my work cube mate's husband, since their new washing machine ate a part of the sleeve. I haven't bought a thrift-store shirt for at least 3 weeks.....but the swap for next month is blue so the hunt will start soon.

The filing system for the deconstructed shirts is in this lovely wine crate.
