So I do a lot of quotes. I usually find them faster then pictures and its a great way for me to have funny or inspirational stuff around. But I only quote that which moves me, and when possible from those I admire. I've quoted shows, songs, my songs, my wife and a few others.

MrXStitch has done a lot for men in needlework and I came across an interview he gave to manbroidery blog back in April. This seemed like a battle cry. Like Joan Jett singing "I love rock and roll". And since I am in the middle of a rather large project it rang even more true to stop what I was doing and do this, truly, on the fly (see how I tied it all together).



And Jamie, My apologies for likening you to Joan Jett. Unless you are into that sort of thing in which case I apologize for nothing!

nice.

(FWIW, I'm single and quasi-looking, and a good, smart, single man who is also crafty would be swoon worthy!  Keep rallying y'all's forces!)
