I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

When  I first saw this pattern, I knew I had to stitch it up. I decided to make a pillow for the living room so each day I can see her and get inspired. Now I want to do an entire series of strong inspiring women.

My coworker just returned from Mexico City and went to her museum there.
She gave me a postcard of one of her portraits that I hadn't seen before.
This is AWESOME!
