What I did yesterday

So I didn't go to school yesterday because Will was supposed to have a root canal so I was going to of course, be his caretaker & chauffeur to & from the dentist. I figured he would be gassed & be pretty loopy afterwards. I wanted to stick around to see that! Well, his insurance wouldn't cover the procedure until after April 1st. Isn't that some bullshit? I hate waiting periods for insurance. I hate having to have insurance, period. Especially since mine went up $30 dollars this year. Ugh.

Where was I?

So I was gonna stay home anyway. I thought I might as well get some craftin' done!

And craft I did. I got 3 projects knocked out yesterday!

available @ my etsy for $15.00!

I thought this was a funny one to do & then it came to me that it was especially funny with the hoes vs. hos debate! I really hope no one takes offense to it though, because..that's not the point. Anywho, it was a quickie & i think the font is cute & the border's cute & four letter words are my favorite kind!
I even thought it was a Mitch Hedberg quote, but it's not.

I am in love with this scarf pattern! I need to find another different pattern before everyone's fucking tired of seeing the same open-work scarf over & over again. This one is MINE though, bitches! Also, I've decided that I put my hands on my hips A LOT. I may need to find something to do with my arms. Besides putting them on my hips.

I also did another "literal" embroidery! This shirt kind of goes with these panties & this shirt. I really really like it! This is such a ridiculous picture of me haha...Will told me to "strike a pose" and I came up with this one. I call it "contemplative" or "pretentiously looking away". I started off working with a stabilizer & it was just not working for me. I was getting pissed. So I unhooped it & ripped the stabilizer out & started again. You know what? It was so much easier! Now, I stretched that shit tight over the hoop which probably isn't a good idea because it might be permanently stretched but mine bounced back! I'm happy! Another shirt salvaged. :)

Here's a shitty close up..

I stuck with the same color scheme as Jenny Hart's & I really like how it turned out!

Haha, I absolutely LOVE that phrase -- not at all what I expected it to say when I started reading it, but that's the point, right?!?! Fantastic. (I love the scarf and shirt too, but the stitched phrase is my favorite.)

Rachel said...

Thank you Glenda! I love it too. I like doing cross stitches that are unexpected like that :)

I loves me the medical embroidery.

I like the idea of female organs on panties, but I am absolutely sure that would terrify my husband. (The lady parts are indeed intimidating.)

Rachel said...

Gorgeous! I love the little boarder around the saying -- it looks so cute and fussy.

Tanya said...

I love the font you used for the cross stitch! It's so pretty and delicate while being used for a naughty phrase.

I also love the embroidery! How clever! I'm not much into embroidery, but you are inspiring me.

you say tomato, i say fucking hilarious.

I'm sure the tomato piece does nothing to improve trans-Atlantic relations.
But it's hella cool! :)

Crystal Rhew said...

I love that saying! And the scarf is so pretty. I'm so jealous of your knitting skills!

torrance said...

Wow girl, the heart shirt is really great.

Lily said...

Love the heart shirt!

Hahaha, I love your Michael hatred! I super love the actor that plays him, so I've always been happy to see him on the show, but Michael really isn't a very likable character.

I love that embroidery! That's a cool idea.
