Day 23: oldest WIP
I haven’t touched this in nearly 4 years and I probably never will again. The chart had all sorts of weird colors and it was too annoying to find colors that I liked.
So, what do you all do with WIPs that you’ll probably never finish? Throw them out? Let someone else try to finish it? Keep it in a box forever? LOL

Matilda (1996), dir. Danny DeVito
hold up Danny DeVito directed the most influential film of my childhood?
Not only directed it but starred in it, took care of Mara Wilson (Matilda) while her mother was in hospital with cancer and even managed to get an advanced copy of the movie for her to watch before she succumbed to her illness. The man is a treasure.
The best story I’ve heard about the production of Matilda was:
The scene where Matilda was dancing around her living room making things fly around to the song “Little Bitty Pretty One” was very nerve-wracking for Mara. She told Danny that she was anxious to do the scene, and he said, “You know why? Because you’re the only one dancing! We just have to have everyone else dance too! Then it won’t be scary!”
So everyone–the crew, the rest of the cast, the people at the craft services table, everyone–danced along with the song, at Danny’s insistence. Apparently the only one who wasn’t doing the full on dance was the camera man, who just did a foot shuffle so the camera wouldn’t jiggle.
If that’s not the sweetest thing ever I don’t know what is.
That is so cute. And sweet.

I made Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service awhile back so it was only a matter of time until I made a Jiji one too! I love his sassy little face.
Kept it simple between other orders, so he costs significantly less than my normal embroidery hoops. Only two available because that’s all the pumpkin fabric I have left!
