What You Come Here For.....

The porn, the stitching porn that is.....I have brought a project to climax...uh, completion.....of course my photography is as bad as what you find on the porn channels that enjoy showing the homemade porno flicks, not that I'd know anything about that......

What you see below, well that's my finished Cape Cod Girls, only I don't know anything about being a Cape Cod Girl. I'm a Gulf Coast Girl....so.....

I did a bit of rewriting and changed the verse to read Gulf Coast Girls instead of Cape Cod Girls...and then it dawned on me that a Gulf Coast Girl would not comb her hair with Codfish bones, but instead......


a little more rewording and our Gulf Coast Girl combs her hair with Grouper bones.





I stitched this using the recommended threads and 40ct PTP Highland(which I love). I did use DMC 224 for the Cape Cod Merchick's face and hands since I didn't have any WDW Peach.
Thanks Lisa for such a great design.
I want to thank everyone for offering up their thoughts on cross stitch and how much they love it or don't these days. I've enjoyed reading all your blogs and have some comments about other people's very thoughtful responses, school starts back Monday(the most wonderful time of the year) so maybe I'll be able to get a few complete thoughts together in the very near future.

Very nice customized finish! I meant to get around to answering your questions on my blog, I just never got around to it. I did like reading lots of other peoples answers though!

Great changes! I'm glad you made it grouper bones. One day I'll have to show you my grouper imitation...or not...it may be best kept private.

And you do not know crap porn until you've watched Polish crap porn in the middle of the night.

What a great job personalizing this for yourself. You've now given me the idea of doing it for West Coast Girls! You're so clever!
