Kanye West's twitter account is comedy gold... or at least it used to be, back in the old days when he would twitter ridiculous things about marble conference tables or cherub rugs. I decided that I needed to embroider his words of wisdom on something.

I realized that no design I could come up with could possibly do it justice, so I figured I'd just stay true to the tweet.

You SHOULD totally do a set. That is completely random though. Seriously.

Great, now I gotta be responsible for this post. Tongue

Very funny. And very nice stitching.  I hope it wasn't too dull doing all that text.  Thanks for the pictures. We all need a laugh.

love this idea. what a clever, and time consuming way to keep those statuses/tweets that made you laugh. it'd be great if you had like a wall of them.  Tongue How long would you say this took you? I want to needlepoint and from my understand if I draw on what I want, I would do qutoes like you did here, it shouldn't be too hard.

it took me a couple of days to finish it, but that was because I realized, after I started, that I was out of gray and blue thread. In total, I would guess that I put in, maybe... 3-4 hours and then a couple of hours of hand cramps. Halfway through, I decided that I should have done one of his shorter tweets  Wink

the makers of twitter were clearly not planning for crafters Smiley 160 whole characters?!?!?

and you should definitely do a set, to make a wall on your real wall
