This time I really wanted to stretch my imagination with what I could put on an embroidery hoop that no one else, ever, in their right mind, would ever place onto an embroidery hoop. Ever.
Then I thought of the movie Memento.
It's probably one of the darkest movies I've ever seen, and it's so good.
If you've never seen it, definitely pick it up sometime. In short, it's about a detective who can't make new memories, forcing him to take vengeful notes in increasingly clever ways.
My natural question of course was "what would the main character of Leonard in Memento do if his only way of capturing memories was embroidery?"
The natural answer is nothing, because embroidery takes friggin forever.
But say if he had a really considerate grand-mother who would embroider his sick twisted notes for him? It would at least be less painful and expensive than tattoo's.
Which brings me to my embroidery, which will undoubtedly divide the public between humored or appalled.
Yep. Leonard's most important chest tattoo, in embroidery form. Backwards and everything so he can still read it in the mirror with the rest of his tattoo's.
Here it is reversed by the mirror in my bathroom:
To really appreciate it, I suggest you picture an old lady in a rocking chair slowly cross-stitching the words while goats graze aimlessly in the fields.
Or if that doesn't work, imagine the confused faces of the people who haven't seen Memento after witnessing it hanging in our apartment bathroom.
Yes. That'll do.
Hope you enjoy it!
