I'm a huge "quote" person. I'm always spouting off silly lines from a movie or song. I watch my favorite shows with a notebook in hand for one liners and snarky quips. And I have pity for anyone who watches one of my favorite movies with me after I've had a little too much to drink. I'm horrible- I start to laugh in anticipation of funny parts or I just say them aloud along with the actor.
Since I'm like this and I know a lot of people who are, I decided to incorporate more of this trait into my stitching. I've had a running list forever, so you guys will be seeing a lot more of these pieces. Some pieces will be for me or friends, others will be for my etsy shop. I'm thinking that I will make a few to swap too. (Hint, hint for all my fellow quote lovers- keep your eyes peeled!)
All of today's pieces have quotes from Godfather I & II. Hey, I'm not called MafiosaGrrl for nothing. All of them are stitched with black DMC onto white handkerchiefs. The larger font uses 3 strands and the smaller font uses two strands.
Always a classic. The good ol' Clemenza.
This next one is a bit obscure. I made it for a friend, it's his favorite line in the first film. It's after the baptism scene when all of the other bosses are killed. Carlo is about to answer what happened to Sonny. As Clemenza speaks from the backseat, Carlo knows he's going to get whacked.
And now, one of my favorite's lately.
It's from Godfather II. After Fredo broke Micheal's heart.
For your viewing pleasure, I've included the clip of this particular scene.
I know I shouldn't but I laugh my ass off at the line that I stitched up.
I have a bunch more in this series. They take forever because of the font. I'll share those when they're done.
In addition to a whole bunch of Mafia movies, I've got lots more in the works. I've planned quote series from The Big Lebowski, The Colbert Report, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and The Trailer Park Boys (Mrs. Evils there is a Rickyism in there with your name on it. well, not literally but you know what I mean.), just to name a few. Then there's a ton of one-liners from random stuff. I'm telling you, my quote list is mammoth. And since it's not getting any smaller I have to start working on it!
What kinds of things do you like to quote? Do you think it's annoying when people quote things often? Do you have a favorite quote?
Thanks for looking and have a craftastic weekend!
