Other Crap, Part 2

Usually when I hit etsy, I think, "I could make that." (But that's pretty universal--I think I can make things I see in stores, at art shows, at the Sunapee Craftsman's Fair.) Now I have whole new things to think. Follow regretsy. I nearly peed when I read about the vulva portraits. I'm sure there are women who are that into their own twats. I'm just not her. I think there's nothing better than laughing at the Vagina Monologues. Now you know why they made me leave the Center for Feminist Research. (I kid.)

So I gave my word I'd post some photos. And I'm perfectly happy for you to make fun of my shit.

No offense - I can do without the vulva portraits - ugh...Of course if you didn't know what it really was, you'd think it was a flower LOL. But your stitching, on the other hand, is great!

Oh, how gross is that!!! I know some people are into themselves - but - REALLY!!!

Deb said...

Okay, those were definitely different. But I'm wondering if you wore one of those around your neck if people would catch on to what they really were - they look like flowers.

Love your Mermaid piece. It's really pretty on that fabric.

Ms. O'Keefe, paging Ms. O'Keefe.

I will confess to reading through that site with horrified panic stuck on my face. I was convincd that there would be a review of something I had created and shared on my blog.

I receive such lovely comments, but I'm convinced that the sender is thinking "Man, this chick REALLY needs to take a class or something."

P.S. Love your stitching.

Cathy said...

I have to disagree. They don't look a thing like flowers to me. I know what I'm getting all the women on my Christmas list this year! Can't wait to see Grandmom Betty's face when she opens hers.

Anna van Schurman said...

But Cathy, how will you get accurate descriptions, so you can get Grandmom Betty's vulva just right? Are you gonna have Grandpop Bob describe it? Draw a doodle? (Doodle it! I crack myself up!) Sneak a camera into the toilet?

Okay, who's going to take this joke too far?

monique said...

O. M. G. Thank you for introducing me to regretsy... that site is just a total hoot! Totally.

Um. I'm just going to say thanks for popping that comma in there. I'm blushing from all this other stuff though and have to leave. :0

Anna, you've outdone yourself. Truly. Regretsy is incredibly funny and twisted. I had no idea what I was missing, and I can't wait to share it with my sister. Coni's right about Georgia ... I'd love to hear her thoughts about the vulva sculpture.

As for the mermaids, thank you for the comma. Your seaweed couching is magnificent. How much fun was that? Those mermaids are waiting in my to-stitch-someday pile, and I have absolutely no idea what fabric I'll use.

I'm not much of a Potter kind of gal, but your nephew is bound to love that sorting hat.

Kellybean said...

Another grammar/punctuation jockey with a twisted sense of humor? I'm new to your blog, and I like you already! Thank you for Regretsy. Beautiful.

Caroline said...

I like that one of the comments on the vulva portraits hoped they got a lot of "business".

rimshot.

zoomcity said...

You're a bad influence. Thank you.

Michelle said...

Love both of the pieces. I'm totally going to have to check out that sorting hat design. So fun!

Coral said...

I love the mermaids!

BTW, only people who aren't immensely proud of their cross stitch will allow some bunch of lunatics to take it and possibly never return it - that is why the shows have such bad embroidery. This is my opinion only and not of the blog that it appears on....
