    [–] “Nice While It Lasted” - BoJack Horseman retarddit_ 1 points ago in Embroidery

    I JUST finished the series and that last shot was, by far, my favorite. I love how you captured it. I would buy the crap out of this.

    Sploodle.

    [–] My SO took our dog for a hike last week...I think she liked it retarddit_ 2 points ago in aww

    It’s in Pacifica, CA, USA. It’s usually pretty foggy, so my SO lucked out.

    Whew. Good. I really didn’t want to have to punch your mom in her cheeks.

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 2 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    I hope you meant pinch...

    But in the event that you didn’t, it’s only fair if I get to punch your mom in her cheeks too.

    Shhh. Don’t let my mom hear you say that.

    And thank you. :)

    That part I knew, just not which dialect. I still have a lot to learn about my heritage. > <

    My grandparents were not big on sharing, so everything I know now is whatever my mom remembers. But I’m lucky to have her stories. :)

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 1 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    Yep! And yeah, I think you’re right.

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 12 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    Unfortunately, not.

    My mom’s family was originally from China, and moved to Japan in the early ‘50s. They all spoke Japanese, Portuguese, English, and Chinese (can’t recall if they spoke Mandarin or Cantonese).

    When they moved to the US, however, my mom and her siblings were encouraged to only speak English. Not sure if her older brother retained anything, but she forgot everything. I also never heard my grandparents speak anything other than English.

    It’s sad, really. I feel like she was forced to give up such a wonderful part of her identity, but I also understand why my grandparents were so eager to assimilate.

    Someone else suggested that and I think it’s a great idea. I’ll have to go post over there. :)

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 21 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    She actually does! Haha. I have a couple pictures of her that I’ll have to dig up that show how much she hasn’t changed.

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 37 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    That’s such a good idea! Thanks so much for the suggestion.

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 45 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    I don’t think my mom remembers much from this time. It was not long after this when they moved to the US. She remembers little things here and there, but I don’t think she has many post-war related memories. I’ll have to ask though to make sure!

    [–] My mom in Japan, 1950s retarddit_ 660 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    Probably very. My grandpa was huuuge into cameras at the time. I have one other photo from this day that is almost better. I’ll post it once I find it.

    [–] Everest embroidery. This is my 3rd attempt at embroidery. I have learned a lot! It’s not perfect (I can see the threads through it) but I like it. retarddit_ 2 points ago in Embroidery

    I remember your original post before the flags! I agree with the feedback some people have given, but I also like that it’s kinda like an abstract/minimalist representation of the flags.

    If I recall, this was for your SO? I think he’s gonna love it (if he hasn’t already seen it). :D

    [–] I am the lizard queen!! My first embroidery project! retarddit_ 3 points ago in Embroidery

    I love this. So well done. How many strands did you end up using?
