In keeping up with my movie quotation embroidery, I decided to go with a personal favorite of mine. This one is from Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind.



"Please let me keep this memory, just this one."



For some reason that quote has always really affected me.

My idea was that as the quotation progressed it would become harder to read, however the lettering is still fully stitched with different colored thread. So I guess it works a bit better in person than it does as a photo.
Still, I hope you like it!

I like it! I don't know what else to say....it's very thought-provoking to me. (That is also a favorite quote of mine)

i love this movie and i think the way you stitched the lettering to get gradually lighter as if it were fading reflects the quote really well. great job!

Oh yeah, totally! I just got them at a Michaels craft store I live down the street from. They shouldn't be too hard to find, but I hope you can manage to get your hands on some without too much trouble.
