Why does Pip "embroider" his visit to Satis House? (chapter IX)

When people use the verb “embroider” to mean something other than its most common action (to sew a design) it is often meant to leave a mark.In this case, the mark he leaves on the experience of going to Satis House is indeed a story (a lie) of grand proportions about what when on there.It involved seeing Miss Havisham in a black velvet coach, eating cake on gold plates, great dogs and playing with flags.I think he tells this story because he has been controlled and overpowered his whole life by Mrs. Joe. Never being allowed to have an opinion or thought of his own, not to mention, never a task of his own, he saw his first opportunity to have control and he took it. Getting away with any sin demonstrates power, not that this is a good thing. This is Pip’s first experience to know better or know more or exert his expertise over Mrs. Joe, something he might have been longing for for a long time.
