This morning I remembered that I want to learn how to embroider things. I have wanted to pick up embroidery for a while now but, as it’s not a very sexy hobby, I never have.
This made me realize:
- It doesn’t matter if people think that the things I like are sexy, fun, or cool.
- It doesn’t matter if people think I’m sexy, fun, or cool.
- I’m sexy, fun, and cool.
My embroidery kit's in the mail, bitches.
I find embroidery to be highly sexy, fun, and cool. I hope you have a blast doing it!
This country is really absurd sometimes…
But we know we love it, though.
that’s why when I say “sorry” to ppl in the states they always dismiss my display of empathy saying “why are you saying sorry? it’s not your fault.” of course it’s not my fault! I want to help u feel bettah gawddd
"Sorry" means something different in Canada than it does in other places.
In Canada, if something bad happens and you say sorry, it means “I acknowledge that you have been inconvenienced or otherwise harmed, and I am expressing sympathy. I’d prefer it if the bad thing had not happened.”
We apologize for things constantly.
"Sorry I’m late, traffic was horrible!"
Sorry about the traffic.
"Ugh, I think I caught the flu!"
Sorry you have the flu. That must be unpleasant.
"My house was burglarized and everything of value stolen!"
Oh wow, I’m sorry. That’s a terrible experience.
And so on. It’s rude not to apologize, because failing to apologize suggests you do not care.
There is even commercials up here in Canada about how we Canadians like to apologize for everything.
Look, it’s a non-LRR cross stitch! I swear I still make those.
This was a birthday present for carouselcycles, who loves both sylveon and pink things. I got the pattern from birdiestitching (here), though I decided to tweak the colours and pick my own. Pretty happy with how it turned out! I have no idea how long this took, but I think it was at least 10-12 hours.
It was fun to sew a cross stitch design I haven’t done before - often I end up doing the same small designs multiple times. This was a nice change.
Yes, it’s another in my LoadingReadyRun In-jokes series! …I mean, the Sarah Watches Too Many LRR Streams series. That one. Anyway. This one is for Jer, whose stream is titled The Book of Passwords. The chat was kind enough to give me suggestions when I was trying to think of something to stitch, so of course I didn’t end up using any of them. Sorry chat. <3
The city council, in cooperation with government agents from a vague, yet menacing, agency, is asking all citizens to stop by the Night Vale Elementary School gymnasium tonight at seven for a brief questionnaire about mysterious sights that definitely no one say, and strange thoughts that in no way occurred to anyone, because all of us are normal, and to be otherwise would make us outcasts from out own community. Remember: if you see something, say nothing, and drink to forget.
This is such a classic WTNV quote that I knew I wanted to do it when I was designing this set. I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out, in the end. I wanted to try and go with an old-fashioned sampler-type pattern, hence the (sort of) flowers in the corners and the curling vines around the edges.
The drink glasses and bottle are off-center, which bothered me to no end when I was stitching them. That’s what I get for guesstimating where they should go instead of counting. But still, I’m really happy with how they turned out, and I think the martini glass is adorable.
The font was found through google. Bottles and glasses were designed off the top of my head. It measures 4 x 6 inches on 14-count plastic mesh, and it is the penultimate stitch in this set.
(I actually finished this last Sunday, but due to reasons involving family I was unable to take a picture until I borrowed a friend’s camera today.)
