Sharon said...

You know, it's always happy hour somewhere. ;)

That comment - what a load of bulldooky. Seriously.

Laura said...

Who needs to wait for happy hour?

I'd wear your representation of rotting corpse meat proudly (I'm assuming it's the grill steak/burgers/hotdogs that got the comment) because it's absolutely hilarious. :)

lisa s said...

DixieRedHead said...

shula said...

anonymous didn't seem to notice that no animals were harmed in the creation of said work.

And always anonymous.

My Kingdom for a zealot with balls.

Jennifer said...

Yeesh, have a margarita on me. I don't remember you wearing any tortured rotting corpses. I DO remember you wearing various wonderful creations that look like tasty grilled meat that I would love to make for myself and my friends. :)

Annika said...

Obviously next time you should wear an ACTUAL tortured rotting corpse.

Gina said...

Who, people never cease to shock. Hugs to you. Hugs to you sweetie pie.

Sara said...

Yippie. Someone else making animal lovers everywhere look like assholes.

Take it from this vegetarian, I don't give a rats a%$& about it. Better than wearing a REAL rotting corpse.

If compassion is your mantra, show some!

Selena K said...

How's about crocheting up a nice big plate of skewered, tortured veggies for the naysayer? Don't let it get to you. People are jerks. May he be a side of bacon in his next life.

Amanda Button said...

ooooooh, now you really need to crochet a lovely zombie stole to wrap 'round your wonderful shoulders! Put a clippie in it so it's mouth can "bite" onto it's arm...or a hotdog or piece of (yummy) bacon! Then you can represent tortured rotting corpses from all species! YEAH! :)
I am astounded at the lack of sense of humor there is in this world. It must be a very sad place for those who don't know how to laugh :( As for the rest of us...well, happy hour is right now! Let's do some shots :D

Juliet said...

I'm a vegetarian and I'd happily wear your rotting corpse art proudly!
I think you are a genius with your yarn work. Definitly an inspiration to make things that aren't just a bunch doilies and blankets :)
Keep those rotting corpses coming!

Lindsey said...

tortured rotting corpse? wonder what they'd think of the crocheted uterus i made...

Trifarina said...

Wow, corpse huh? I've heard of spam-a-lopes but synthetic acryl-lopes? Sweet, I'll start dusting off ye ole pith helmet and we can go on safari.

harmonyfb said...

'tortured rotting corpse'? Damn, was there a zombie pattern that I missed???

People like that aren't worth the second it takes to delete their comments. ::waves them away::

Your work is fabulously creative, and speaking as a horror maven, I'm thrilled that there's somebody out there designing fiber projects just for me. :)

Corvus said...

Wow, somebody seriously needs a beer. Of course, this is my response to everything. Long day got you down? Beer. Problems at work? Beer. Nuclear holocaust/zombies rising? Beer. And a cricket bat.

Sue said...

Ack! Well, that comment was right out of a horse's rear end. Sheesh! What party pooper. Hugs for you.

I find it amusing to point and laugh at people who are so militant about their religious/political/philosophical beliefs. It does no good to be angry or upset, and they'll reevaluate somewhere down the road, anyway.
I'm too old to believe that my ideals are perfect anymore, but I was there in my 20's. Ahh.. I remember it well! These days I just sit back with my hooks, yarn, and a bottle of Jameson, I pop some Eagles of Death Metal on the stereo, and I crochet deformed ami pets for my friends who respect and love bizarre crafts.

cinderelly said...

as foir the happy hour, as my mom always says, "it is SOMEWHERE in the world!" there is nothing worse than a vegetarian trying to reform the world...anonomously. i too, have had a couple glasses of wine...but i'm not sad, 'cause i've had a couple glasses of wine! hee, hee! anyway, i think your works are hi-larious!

ax174 said...

The sad thing is, I'm sort of a vegetarian, but I'm ashamed to admit it, because for many people of my generation, i.e. born in the 60s, the word is associated with proselytizing fanatics - like evangelicals, but more violent (don't even ask about the term, "vegans"). I think it's sort of like how "feminism", for people born in the 70s and 80s, is associated with strident harpies - a much sadder situation, IMHO.

Marnie said...

Oooh, a tortured rotting corpse could be a fun crochet. I'm thinking a whole zombie themed getup. Mayhaps you could add some additional appendages in unexpected places.

Thanks Anonymous for the awesome idea!

Carol said...

Just in this year so far, people have done much worse than wear things that represent scary stuff. Hel oooo, Monster Crochet...what was annon. expecting, flowers and bunnies? A most ladylike response I must say. Good on you Lady L! Some one needs to li ten up.

ladylinoleum said...

All - I am blessed to have you all in my blogosphere. You guys keep me inspired and on my toes. Thank you for your love and support. Many hugs and kisses to all of you!

Steve said...

You KNOW that you are fabulous when you start getting hate mail! Congratulations!!! :)

Vashti Braha said...

Ideas for the next design can come from the most unlikely places! I mean, "tortured rotting corpse" as a wearable something....wow,
so many possibilities in that one email, offered for FREE because it's anonymous! Corpse of WHAT for example? Wearable WHERE? By WHICH SPECIES?
I'm still revved by Susan's comment about MANCHVEGAS. That just changes everything. WOO-HOO!!

Rose said...

I, too, went back looking for the zombie pattern I missed. But alas, it was just a humorless vegetarian. Drat!

Dooberoo said...

It sounds like someone needs a Mydol, and a nap. I look forward to seeing your work. As far as drinking goes, sorry gave it up, so insead of beer. I will sit back, ad enjoy a big cup of coffee wih a touch of cinnamon, creamer, and a couple packets of sweetener.

desperate housewife said...

I'd be proud to wear any representation of rotting corpse designed by you.

Let's have some Cuervo Margaritas

joymama said...

we're a veg family and we love your yarn meat and meat by-products! I even made your weenie scarf last summer. Bacon wrap anyone?
