...but Monday Night is Gay Night.



In short, I was inspired to make this from a scene in Rob Schneider's The Hot Chick, making this what I believe to be the first (and probably only) embroidered work inspired from such a source.



For a more detailed explanation of what I was thinking, you might want to visit my blog www.theawkwardunicorn.com, but frankly, I don't think it's necessary. Just know that this hangs comfortably on my wall and when someone says anything slightly questionable I tap it repeatedly. Unless it's Monday night of course. Then all bets are off.

This is my first embroidered work, and I must say, I really really enjoy it.
I hope you like it too!

This seems like a great riff on the whole day-of-the-week tea towel embroidery tradition!  I'd love to see a series... "Tuesday night is Two-fer", "Wednesday night is Fetish Night", "Thursday night is Ladies' Choice", etc.

I love the saying, but the man and woman are particularly cute. Nice stitiching and color choices as well.

Thanks so much! I love the series idea, I just might have to make some for my friends, probably mostly just to see their mixed and confused expressions when I give it to them.

Love it!

Agree with others that you could totally make a days of the week series for tea towels.
