What People Are Saying About Penny

"I like to think of you as a high priced call girl that the unwashed masses can't afford--like Woody Allen's Whore of Mensa. It's not your fault that people offer $10 blowjobs on the street corner. It's not an insult if somebody doesn't buy your art." -Alexandra J Walters

"Once Penny was making her own silk thread, and a midget appeared. Before he could open his ugly mouth, without looking up, she exclaimed, 'Rumpelstiltskin. Now get the fuck out of here.' Fairytale Over."- Beth Featherstone

"Penny can push a needle through a telephone pole without a thimble." -Shane Blaufuss

"When a man asked Penny, 'What’s the meaning of life?' She looked at him for exactly 3 minutes, completely still, until he cried. That man’s name was Steve Jobs."- Beth Featherstone

"A demon from the pits of bitch cunt." -W.C. Hurst

Could be moss, could be an aerial view, could be I'm not saying till it's finished. What I will say is that it will be part of an installation using hoops of different sizes, and this one is 3" across, 1 out of 20 pieces.
I do love the way it looks.
Oops! I forgot to add, the light green floss is silk that I spun and dyed.

  5. Hey Penny, this work is indeed the business, I love it. I'm wondering if you got RSI from all the knots, I know that when I'm in a crochet frenzy RSI is a curse on my once nimble hands.
    Also thanks for visiting me at apronsandhammers, I'm guessing I have Dude Craft to be grateful to for the link, and to top it all off I'm in awe of the Manbroiderer, much kudos! The world gets a little smaller day by day...

  6. Hey Emma! Yeah, my hands are pretty much shot from printmaking gouges and knitting. On top of that, I have dysgraphia from a childhood illness, so that doesn't help either. I've found that holding the hoop strains my hands worse than the actual embroidering. Do you have any tricks for relief?
    Also, I found apronsandhammers through my husband's Manbroidery blog. Man, am I glad I did! Your work is awesome! I love your banner too, it makes me miss my printmaking tools!
