so this happened today ..

That mega fit model lady, Lara Stone, posted a picture of my embroidery on Instagram.
Many thanks to people tagging me in the photo and linking my shop.
As much as I'm astounded at the response of this work, I'm also worried that it seems to be getting a little 'lost' on the internet. In hindsight I should have put a watermark on the photo. But never mind, it's still pretty bloody amazing!

and this, she said, this, we call home

More of these infamous embroideries are online in my Etsy shop, seeing as you funny guys are still seeing it all over tumblr and want a piece of the action.



I bought this original American duvet cover from a charity shop recently. Covered in stills from the E.T movie, I find it horrifying and amazing all at the same time. E.T made me cry a lot as a kid and I've never watched it since. However, the pattern on this duvet cover seemed like too good an opportunity to miss (especially at a bargain price). I'll re-work and embroider over E.Ts face and turn some of the other bits into cushions - the bmx bit is my favourite.

This embroidery has sold now, but it's such a beautiful quote, I may have to make another.

'only boring people get bored'
My wonderful nanny has always said this and it's something I've always lived by. I'm fortunate that I have a hobby that also makes me dollar, but it's not hard to get up and get outside, go an adventure or annoy your friends and family. Stop moaning about being bored or not having anything to do, find something to do or you'll get a sore arse from sitting on it all day.
Use this is as a little reminder to do something exciting, or as an award for being a busy awesome person.
I hear too many people say they're bored. I can't imagine what it feels like.

Embroidery available here.
