Remember when I said I had craft ADD? Well, it continues. Ha!
I’ve found the recent Supreme Court ruling on the Hobby Lobby case disconcerting, to say the least. As a citizen of the United States, as a woman, as a crafter, I couldn’t be more disappointed.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent marks what seems to me to be the voice of reason in a court gone bonkers. I could rant on and on all day about the case and the repercussions and implications of the decision, but instead, I’d rather show you my embroidered homage to the Notorious R.B.G. In my eyes, she’s a human rights hero.
And even though I have a million and one wip’s sitting in hoops, this weekend, I felt compelled to stitch her up. As we celebrate Independence Day here in the U.S., I’m focusing on Americans who still make me feel that there’s something about this country worth celebrating.
Bob Silverstein from Better World Heroes kindly gave me permission to use his drawing as an embroidery pattern. Better World Heroes and Do One Thing.org maintain a list of heroes with short biographies, quotes, and coloring pages great for introducing kids and adults to people who’ve made a difference in the world.
In regards to the astronomical number of wip’s and ufo’s I have going on right now (when does a wip officially become a ufo?), one of my goals this weekend is to make a list of all my ongoing projects and recommit to finishing some of them. I need a plan. I can do this. Wish me luck! 🙂
