Naughty Needlepoint - Another Night of Drinking
As you probably know I tend to write these little ditties late the night before since I'm trying to run an actual design practice.
It doesn't always work out that way and sometimes I find myself scrambling to get one out while on the phone with one or more vendors who don't quite understand the word "acknowledgement".
So anyway, what tends to happen is that later in the evening I'll pour myself a glass of liquid courage and start the process of writing a post. But then I click on a link here, an email blast there, and by the time the big hand hits the twelve I'm no closer to writing a post than I was two days prior.
BUT, the next morning (like this morning... remember, I'm writing this Monday night) there are always a number of tabs open in Firefox with what can only be called the results of drunken Google searches.
Monday's open tabs were no different.
I'm not sure what the hell I was doing or searching for (though in the search box was the term "Stalin in pink panties") but I ended up with three different Etsy links for needlepoint. Let this serve as a lesson to all of you.
I love Kanye. No. Wait. I love what comes out of Kanye's mouth. Quite simply because it makes him look crazy. There is a straight jacket out there with his name on it. Long Beach designer Amy Sheridan thinks so too.

They say that when starting out in bondage for the first time, you should start small and work your way up. I believe French visual artist Kennedy James may have misinterpreted just exactly what that meant but seriously, a few of these under a cloche will have Nana wondering about your bedroom habits.

We know what you're thinking: Sometimes you just have to have your favorite SouthPark saying hanging above the fireplace. Or next to the Loo. If that is the case then you may need to put in a call to Steotch Fine New England Needleart - where they promote careful handiwork, precise stitching...and dirty hiphop.

By the way... not showing you the fourth tab. Seriously.
Don't even ask.
