Sometimes You just gotta say it!
Warning! This post contains the "F" word! If you find it offensive, don't read. If you do read, it's all in good humor.
Sometimes you just gotta say it...like when you almost catch the kitchen on fire. "Mom, you just said the "F" word!". Or maybe when you are on a sheet of solid ice, on a hill, in a lousy pick up truck, and you start sliding down...."F!" Or maybe when your only positions are standing and laying on your side or stomach and you want to sit..."F!". Or maybe you use it when you start cleaning your studio to start a project for a paying customer "... and the resultant rebound in the opposite direction” sends you reeling! (courtesy of whiplash). Or when you leave the opening at the top of the pillow (WTF was I thinking?!). My sister and I had been laughing this week at Subversive Cross Stitch and coming up with our own. We loved the surly attitudes with the lovely bunnies or hearts. Had us cracking up! For some reason, this project just came to my head as I was preparing to make something else. I just said "f... it!" and ran with it. It fits many categories, the surly theme(week 2 of whiplash), use what you have (I used a small piece of an antique linen throw that a dog had destroyed and leftover yarn from other projects) and of course this weeks theme for whiplash, which is yarn. The yarn is needlefelted, freeform, onto the linen, then stitched into a pillow. This is for my sister who is the one who can't sit, no how, no way.
