For the life of me, I cannot understand why my mo-ther insists on publishing ridiculously embarrassing photos of me. There I was, minding my own business with my Aunt Chrissy, when the old lady decides she just HAS to get a picture of it for her blog. Can't a guy get a little love without the whole world knowing about it?
So, in the spirit of "turn about is fair play", I give you Exhibit A: This is the Bent Creek "Big Zipper" project. You'll notice that my mother is NOT stitching this on the 18ct. cork linen that came with the kit. She's stitching on a piece of 32ct. Legacy linen from Picture This Plus. You'll also notice that she is NOT stitching this with the #5 perle cotton that came with the kit. She's stitching this with Crescent Colours from her stash.
Now before you ooohhh and aaaahhhh over her supposed "creativity and brilliance", let me just expose her right this very minute: MY MOTHER IS A FRAUD! SHE SHAMELESSLY STOLE THIS IDEA FROM MISS MARGIE FROM THE "THREE COOL PUGS...&ME" BLOG.
That's right, kids. My mother, who likes to parade herself around as a fun-loving, holly go-lightly, stitchy fundster is a BIG FAT FRAUD. She has never had a creative or brilliant bone in her body and she gets every single good idea she has ever had from other people. So there.
I'm off to water the drapes.
Have a wonderful day today! The sun has just started to peek out from behind the clouds, so methinks it's time for a little sunbathing and snoozing! Woo Hoo!
