It's Log!

Do you remember the Ren and Stimpy cartoon where they had a fake commercial for a children's toy called "Log" and all it was was a log? Well, I can't get that song out of my head..."It's log, it's log, it's better than bad it's good!"

Anyways, after the hospital visit I decided I needed a neck bolster pillow for better head and neck support so silly me, instead of running to the store and purchasing one I decide to MAKE one and not just any old one but one that looks just like a log. Of course I had to hunt down fabric that looked like bark and since I couldn't find fabric that looked like woodgrain I hand embroidered the woodgrain ends. My husband laughed his butt off when he saw it. (He's a carpenter so he appreciates the wood theme.) I had plans of making a matching pair but the embroidery took so long we'll see if the second one ever gets made.

I can't believe you did that embroidery by hand. It's super cute though (and I do remember the Ren & Stimpy log)

I'll let you in on a little secret, I did one big spiral instead of a bunch of tiny circles! Once I got it going it didn't take too long, it was just the getting going part.

Thanks for checking my blog out! I'll be sure and check out your's as well.

I loved Ren and Stimpy. Think they have the episodes on DVD?
