Reason 1,234,567 I can’t wait until the house is sold: I get to put up all my inappropriate decor.
I don’t have super-awesome stuff like electric chairs or cobras fighting mongooses, but I have plenty of off-kilter things and things that don’t get your house sold that we can’t have out right now (a homemade ALF planter I found at a flea market, Tom likes to display his big ol’ AT-AT from childhood, etc.),
With the rapid reduction of dog rescue work I do, I’ve found time to do things I used to do, like a little bit of crafting.
Over Thanksgiving weekend, I finally got to make what’s been bouncing around in my head for over five years. But, now it has to go in a box, waiting for a time when a cross-stitch inspired by Silence of the Lambs can be displayed in my bathroom without weirding out potential buyers, just regular visitors. So, for now, I will hang it in this blog post to enjoy.

Where on earth did you get this cross stitch pattern! As a long time cross stitcher and SotL fan I must make this! Love it!
I made it combining cross-stitch sampler font and my brain. It’s drawn on an old, used-other-side piece of graph paper. Maybe I’ll try and clean it up for posting.
Hahahaha! I scrolled down and looked at the photo first, which was incredibly puzzling. One word – awesome.
Perhaps you should put it up anyway, maybe it will scare someone into making an offer on the house.
Or I can make another one – “It puts the offer on the table or else it gets the hose again.” It doesn’t have the same nice ring to it, but it gets the point across!
I want one of those in our kitchen that says “i ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
Holy shit, I could totally put that together. A Silent of the Lambs cross-stitch for every room!
Silence of the Lambs, I think I’ve been affected by the “Don’t forget snack” sticker.
Why aren’t you on Etsy with all this? I think you’re missing out on a niche market of (angry? endearingly psychotic?) Christmas shoppers.
It’s what you could get the weirdo who has everything.
And NOW I know what I want for Christmas. Screw the card . . . send me one of those!!
(Just kidding, I want a card, too!). 🙂
Next you’re gonna tell me you want a suit made of ladies.
Freakin awesome! If you ever decide to sell them, let me know! I wann one!
Hey, I just quit my job, so it isn’t out of the question!
I want one. Like fire.
Thanks! I can in the very least help you with that fire, they’re pretty easy to make.
That. Is. Awesome.
I wish I has the patience for cross stitch. I’ve seen so many cool designs.
Thanks, Amy! That’s what I liked about it – it isn’t terribly complicated or time consuming.
OMG. I never use OMG because it is so “omg” and OMG. WANT ONE! And a companion pieces that says “Oh yeah… was she a great big fat girl?” Name your price. Must have one!!
I love that line, “oh yeah…was she a great big fat girl?” What a giveaway, BB just couldn’t help himself.
That’s awesome! You should make ones for different movies and sell them. I’d totally buy one.
I want to do an Army of Darkness one and a Pee Wee’s Big Adventure one.
That is sheer genius. I love it!!
I love inappropriate cross stitches. I have several and have made some for friends, who love them, too. And I particularly enjoy when someone new comes to visit, so I can’t see their faces when confronted with Suck It! in a fancy cross-stitch font.
It’s really the only way to cross-stitch.
