FO Friday – RIP Tom Petty

Like everyone else, I’m bummed about Tom Petty.  He’s one of the few people who could still put out an entire album worth listening to, on repeat, all day.   Naturally, he’s been in heavy rotation here at the FogKnits’ headquarters this week.

There isn’t much ‘Tom Petty Knitting’ but his songs sure are quotable…

…and that lends itself to cross stitch, easily.

I like cassette tapes.  I didn’t really have any particular reason for going with the tape.  Then, I listened to Full Moon Fever.  It was one of the first CDs I ever had.  By which, of course, I mean one of the first CDs my Mom ever had.  In any event, it got listened to constantly.

I nearly forgot about the hidden track.  I loved that when I was a kid.   Tom gave us a moment to stop and consider how convenient CDs were.  No stopping to flip the tape.  Ha ha!  It just cracked me up.  It still does.  The perfect, unexpected surprise in the middle of a CD, which was already a thing wonder.

Hello CD Listeners…

And an embroidery hoop is round like CD.  That can’t be a coincidence.  I’ve got a tape.  Now, time for a CD.  Yes, it’s a bit wordy but my next idea has been born!

RIP Tom, I hope you like being immortalized in bathroom cross stitch!
