My husband and I have a guilty pleasure called 'Hoarders'. One of our favorite people on the show is Matt. He is consistently saying things that make us smile.

Well, on one episode Matt says, "We are all four or five decisions away from sh*tting in a bucket" when clearing out a homeless man's camp outside a hoarders house after he finds the 'toilet' he had been using.

My husband and I warn each other with that quote whenever we feel like the other person is about to make a decision that isn't the brightest or most productive, so I found a vintage font and cross stitched it, sewed it to 1930's style fabric and hung it behind glass.

It's one of my favorite cross stitch projects I've done so far and it hangs on the wall next to my side of the bed.

This may be my favourite cross-stitched piece of all time.  I may even have to make one for myself.  You made my day, perhaps, even my week, with this.

Thank you,

Jennifer

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Great quote, although I can't watch hoarders, being a neat nick it makes my skin crawl. I can't go to bed with one dish in my sink.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
