Day 117: Stitch a Meme

 

You throw a little Impact font together with some google search clipart and it can make magical things.

Feel free to download/save this picture and hand embroider it into a pillow or other doo-dad to have lying around the house.

How to transfer image: 
Get a water soluble transfer pen, your fabric and then watch this video. Super easy. I don’t have a light box and this is what I do. Video Tutorial

Color suggestions:

Walrus--DMC 414 (gray) or DMC 801 (brown) for body and DMC 762 (off white for tusks)
Lettering–Black (You can either fill in the letters or just do an outline of letters)

Although this is free—and you could make it yourself so I wouldn’t dream of charging money—I have one request.

If you print this, transfer and stitch this image. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE–send me a picture of your finished work. I think it would be awesome to see!

U is for Underground

 

Any day underground is a good one.

I started caving for fun in 2006 and have kept it up. Work and school have kept me busy so I haven’t had as much time to play in caves with my friends, but at least my work keeps me in caves.

I lead wild cave tours for visitors that have never been off a walking trail in a cave. It’s amazing to share this experience with visitors and help them gain that sense of accomplishment upon completing different portions of the tour.

I realize that I will probably never get into Lechugilla cave or other important notables because I am casual caver. I have enjoyed my time as such  :)

I have been through tight squeezes, chest high water, nasty chert crawls, and fallen asleep on a perfect pile of dirt.
I even got married in a cave. It amused Kit and I because there were some guests that refused to attend the ceremony because they were too scared to walk 500 feet into the entrance. It was a beautiful wedding and I could not have been happier :)

I have so many good memories and fun times Underground that it just had to be my letter U!
The Underground world is so much fun :)
