I love that cross stitch! It looks so domestic and docile and then you look closer and it's awesome and feministy. It's really well done, too!
I hope millik likes my package! It should be there soon
Editing to add photos of the package I just got from millik!!
First, a fucking bad ass apron. I love to bake, but with an apron that's embroidered with Betty Dodson's face, I doubt I'll get people telling me I'm being domestic! She even has little bead "earrings" sewn on! I love it!
Second, an equally awesome pillow. Not only is it in my favorite colors, not only does it have a uterus on it, but the uterus has a moustache. Superb!
Third, a happy/sad uterus pin set. So everyone knows what my uterus is feeling like. Soon to make many appearances on my purse/jacket.
Fourth, and god I love this one, it's so clever--A little package of stickers. The case, perfect size for sticking in my purse to have at the ready for whenever I need them:
And what's inside?
Lastly, she also included a zine that she and her friend made for a menstrual workshop--I love menstrual activism and alternative menstruation, so it's awesome that we have that in common and this zine is lookin' sweet to boot!
Thank you so much for everything, millik. It's all so beautiful, creative, and well-made! Also, millik noticed that I like to use recycled and repurposed materials, so she made all the items without buying any materials besides what she already had, which I love. How thoughtful! What a great swap!
