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!


 

I love the weekend

After being out of town last weekend, I was pretty stoked for a weekend at home.  I hit the cross stitch hard.

A little ode to the Grateful Dead.

Followed by the realization that it’s already Sunday night.

Where does the time go?

There was plenty of knitting too.  It hasn’t been digitally immortalized yet though.  I continue to think about Cat Sweater #2, but that’s it, just thinking about it.  Marled Magic is too much fun to put down.  Pics soon!  Clue 3 is nearly finished!!!
