Tomorrow will be Two months to .....
It is two months today to the centenary of International Women's Day, on 8 March. Although I do not go deeply into the politics, I do have an interest in the original Suffragettes. Those who have known me for a while know I have a tendency to branch off into all sorts of combinations of purple green and white, and the badge, above, is an early suffragette one that I wear on occasion.
And I like to pause and do something on the day, in celebration of the fact that I am a woman in a country where I have freedom to make choices. So I will definitely be doing something on the occasion of the one hundreth such day.
At this point, I think I will take my stitching, and sit and stitch all over the place in public. I am sure the local bead shop will let me have a little bit of space in the morning, there is a nice cafe just down the mall where I can have lunch while I stitch, and I am not sure where I will go for the afternoon. Guerrilla Stitching may be in order - I may even go and sit and stitch in the local shopping plaza.
On what shall I stitch? I think it will be a purple, green and white Comfort Doll, for the Comfort Doll Project. Somehow, it seems appropriate. And if any other Stitchers see me and come up and talk (we Stitchers tend to be a forward lot that way, you should see how people approach me when I am Tatting in public, like in hospital waiting rooms), I shall have little bits of paper with the URL handy for the blogspot.
Is anyone else likely to do the same thing - or have any ideas?
