I've had some reservations about posting this project, partially because my pictures are kinda cruddy but mostly because I think that.... this project might
be too weird even for craftster. I know - that's crazy, right?
Well, the backstory is that one day a long long time ago my two best friends and I were sitting around, bored, and one of us said something like "you know what I like? Brunch. There should be more of those in-between-meals meals." It being a slow, lazy day, we decided to figure out what those meals might be called. We spent a while giggling and dividing and sub-dividing meals until we had a meal schedule where there were 24 meals in a day. (what, you don't do stupid stuff like that with your friends?) Well, that was years ago and every once in a while, one of us will find the list and we'll call each other and giggle again over our old, stupid inside joke. So for my friend Anna's birthday/housewarming (who incidentally loves food more than anything) I embroidered a set of four tea towels with four of our fake meals on them, and including her favorite foods. That sure was a lot of buildup, huh? So without further ado, I present to you:
BRUNFAA, the swedish meal between breakfast and brunch:
That would be orange juice, coffee, eggs, toast, and hash browns (which came out looking like waffles).
DUNCH, which can be found (of course) between dinner and lunch:
That would be In N Out and Krispy Kreme (and yes my friend Anna does eat those two together)
LINDINDINNER - it's not quite Lunch, Dinner, Linner, or Dunch, but somewhere in between those:
Anna's favorite Mexican meal of cheese enchiladas, beans, rice, and chips, with a diet coke to wash it all down
and finally, Didnight Snack, when you need a little something to tide you over until Midnight Snack
The towels had cute little trim on the bottom, which my camera wouldn't properly photograph because it hated me that night, and which wouldn't fit all the way on my scanner:
And what better way to wrap overindulgent food towels than in pink pastry boxes?
Ahh, I feel a little embarrased now. My silliest self revealed on the internet. But hey - food embroidery? At least it's different, right?
