The Swap That Really Tied The Room Together. Part 2

My turn!  Now that Sam has her package, I can share my pictures of it with you guys.  The idea behind the swap was a movie surprise.  A scene and a quote from a film, and the recipient had to guess what they were from.  Okay, so mine we're really easy to figure out but I just had to do those ones.

First up- The Dude and his special lady friend, Maude.  From The Big Lebowski.  Isn't it funny that we both picked the same movie for each other?
(Please excuse the massive amount of pictures.  When I was all done, I was rather smitten with it.)
Maude took over a whole skein of copper floss.  That's one shiny lady friend.

I also made a Fight Club embroidery.
 I'm sure that you can finish the rest of this quote.  I don't want to get too risque, ha ha.

So, yeah.  Those were my big, secretive projects that I have been so mysterious about.  
 Thanks for looking!  I'll be back later with more stitchy stuff.

Thank you very much. I've never been much for making tutorials or that sort of thing but now that I realize how much it really helps people, I think I'll keep it up.
