More pictures of my hand embroidered bee, now finally really finished <3  I’m going to frame it over the weekend, and then it’s finally done!

Hand embroidered, flat silk thead on linen

Totally amazing. I’m in awe. So beautiful and detailed, and so dramatic. Sigh.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

Moth #2 update! I’m finished the two top wings & am starting in on the bottom ones. I hope to be done this creature by the end of the weekend (she said, wistfully).

Zounds!

“In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone .. Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.” .. (Martin Luther King Jr., speaking about ‘right-to-work’ laws in 1961)
