I'm a huge fan of Trailer Park Boys (Canadian mockumentary about trailer park life which involves a butt-ton of swearing, liquor, dope, and gun fights...that somehow makes it funny? bwaha), so I decided to embroider something about it! Plus this past month or so has been my huge embrodiery kick, haha.

So it's the famous features of the three main dudes - Ricky, Bubbles, and Julian - with a quote from Ricky, who often fails at popular sayings/pronounciating things.  Wink



I'm not too thrilled about how the lettering turned out, but I do really like it overall! Yay, not to find a frame and put it somewhere. Cheesy
Thanks for looking!

YES!!!!!  I love this Smiley  I also have a TPB series of embroideries I've been working on- great minds think alike.  I love how you just stitched their hair.  Great job.

Love it! I love all the Rickyisms. They're perfect fodder for embroidery.
