This morning I remembered that I want to learn how to embroider things. I have wanted to pick up embroidery for a while now but, as it’s not a very sexy hobby, I never have.
This made me realize:
- It doesn’t matter if people think that the things I like are sexy, fun, or cool.
- It doesn’t matter if people think I’m sexy, fun, or cool.
- I’m sexy, fun, and cool.
My embroidery kit's in the mail, bitches.
I find embroidery to be highly sexy, fun, and cool. I hope you have a blast doing it!

“Up a flight of stairs, at the back of a leafy courtyard off the rue Saint-Honoré in Paris, the apartment where Robespierre once lived is now a showroom for intricate eighteenth-century-style embroidery…” Silk taffetas are embroidered with gold thread…inspired by 18th century court costumes. from trouvais.com
This makes me want to read The Scarlet Pimpernel, again.
