I Want My Two Dala$


Bwahahaha! Oh, I just crack me up...

Are you thinking I've lost my mind? Well... you might be right, but still. Ok, I don't know why, but this just struck me as so dang funny that I had to stitch it out. It's a play on words of course, from one of my favorite movies. I love those corny 80's movies, especially anything with John Cusack (hello... Say Anything!).


Here are a few of my favorite scenes which capture some of the obsurdity of this movie...


Somehow I tied "dollars" and "Dalas" together and viola, silliness ensues!


Anywhoo... I've got a few more of these floating around my head so you may see some more madcap stitching in the future, hope you don't mind. I've warned you... I'm a goofball.

Coming soon... Christmas gifts revealed!
oxo,
Lisa

p.s. Thank you friends for your kind words about my brothers dog, Sage. I can't tell you how much I appreciated them.

p.p.s. I know traditional Dala Horses don't have tails... now that's silly. So I added them. Artistic expression and all. Toodles!
