I was quite…emotional about the election. I have personal and professional reasons for feeling certain ways about what has happened, what is happening, and what I’m concerned will come.
My first thought was that I should rise back up after this, which inspired this piece at first. I was inspired to finish it after “nevertheless, she persisted.”
I created the pattern based on a clipart image I found. The fabric and thread were both hand dyed by MadXStitcher. They don’t have dyed fabric in their shop anymore, but their threads are amazing and high quality. I love working with the variegated floss.
I know there is more to it than just the soundbite that is circulating, but it’s a rallying cry that works, and illustrates the attitudes that have affected women and other “minorities” for years and years.
We can rise up!
