Good fortune

I’ve been feeling craft-inspired lately. It probably has something to do with the holidays being over and the weather being nice. It puts me in a good mood, which in turn leads to creativity.

I wanted to make something special for Kane for valentine’s day. Crafting something for a guy is really tough. They don’t want jewelry,  and you can’t crochet them anything except for a g-string, and how many of those does he really need? (Kidding, kidding!!!)

I settled on a keepsake. A fortune cookie keepsake!

My husband loves fortune cookies, and I thought it would be fun and sweet to embroider a love fortune on some white ribbon.

And it was! It took longer than I thought, but I love how it turned out.

His first reaction? “Is this because I’m asian?”.

Umm, yes. Yes I guess it is.

Oh hell, another moment in accidental racism. Shoot.

  1. Did you first consider embroidering, “I love you long time”? Because that would have been intentional racism, which is sometimes funny with the right people. (And now I look like a racist a-hole because I said that. Oh, well!)
