In stitches.

So a little while back, I mentioned that I had taken up embroidery. Well, my friends, I have not only taken it up - I have attacked it with a vengence!

Stupid me forgot to take pictures of my first-ever project, a set of tea towels for my mother-in-law that we gave her for her birthday. The towels had cat heads and roses on them (much cuter than it sounds), and turned out okay for a first attempt.

Since then, I've made five more towels. Okay - I know what you're thinking. "Sitstay, who the fuck needs that many towels?" I'm glad you asked, anonymous stranger. No one needs that many towels. No one needs more than one pair of shoes, either, but variety is the spice of life and I loves my flavors. Let's move on.

After the cat head towels, I made a bitchin' set of towels that I can't talk about right now. In due time, my pretties. In due time. And yes, I did say "bitchin'" up there because the towels are indeed bitchin'. Photos will come after an undisclosed amount of time. That's all I have to say about that.

Next it was all about me and my love of sushi, and here's where I can start posting some pictures for you to enjoy:

This is now hanging on my oven door. Here are some close-ups:

Mmm hmm. I got mad skills, yo.

After the sushi towel, I made a nifty space towel for a friend. I was going to give it to her today, but she's playing hooky. Maybe I'll see her tonight at ye ol' sushi train.

Since I've pretty much gotten the hang of iron-on transfers, I decided to go way out on a limb for my latest project. Inspired by a desktop background Mr. Awesome found on 4chan (do not click that link at work... seriously... also, the fact that Mr. Awesome knows his way around 4chan is both fascinating and disturbing), I bought some transfer paper and made my own creation.

Behold! The first in what I hope will be a series of absurdist intertubes humor projects:

I am overcome with the sheer awesomeness of this towel. I finished it last night. I don't know what I'll do next... any suggestions?
