Inspirational Embroidery (of a kind)

After embroidering "Where's Fluffy" from Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist, I thought it'd be cute to do a few more little embroideries with a pop culture theme. The Simpsons were the logical choice for the next project.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I adore Lisa Simpson, so of course I chose something related to her: the note Mr. Bergstrom wrote her when he had to leave her school. I got a screen shot of the note off the internet, traced it onto the fabric, and used cotton floss in the color of pencil lead. I even found a plastic hoop in "Simpsons yellow":
Where I'll put these, I have no idea.


  1. OMG!!! This is PERFECT! I have thought about stitching this... but you did and you did it simply and brilliantly. I love the yellow hoop, too! Just wonderful. Sigh... don't you wish Mr. Bergstrom would write you a note like this? I sure do... ;-)

  2. Everyone needs a Mr. Bergstrom in her life . . .
