Kermit is done! *insert Kermit flailing wildly*

I’m going to do the background in French knots because it’s not an IrishBirdyNeedleworks embroidery without French Knots :D

Hands down the best embroidery I’ve done. Truly. Idk why I’ve always been afraid of blending colors together in my older patterns, but now I have the confidence to do it. I’m going to revisit an older project and finish it 💪🏼

One of the best scenes ever committed to film has to be the bicycle scene from THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER (1981). It’s funny, it’s touching, it’s graceful, and it’s also a great technical feat, involving radio control, animatronics, a huge crane to operate the marionettes, clever editing techniques, the works.

Director Jim Henson sent in an application to be considered for a visual effects Academy Award, but it wasn’t even nominated (RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK won that year, beating DRAGONSLAYER).
