oodles of charm (embroidery no. 6)

oodles of charm

I can have oodles of charm when I want to. This quote is also from Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut. I love his writing because there’s a darkness and a kind of rambling that has these brilliant quips and nuggets of truths.

oodles of charm when i want to

Is charm something you can turn on and off? Or is that manipulation? I have a feeling Kurt Vonnegut took the more pessimistic approach. I’m more of an optimist really, so I added curlicues and the color pink. And, you know what, I really like the way it came out. I can’t wait to hang this up with the others!

I hope everyone is having a great Easter and some hopefully great springtime weather!

This is part of an embroidery project I am working on to sew some of my favorite quotes from books and post the images here each Sunday. Let me know if you have any quote suggestions! You can see the other quotes in my embroidery project here:
