the spiteful stitcher

the spiteful stitcher2

funny how stupid, inconsiderate and ill informed remarks can be so upsetting. after a series of such remarks coming from total fools who have no idea what textiles are and what it takes to make them i came home, pounded some flowers on linen, sat down and stitched. i could have walked into a burger joint and gunned the patrons, that's why it's done. anger.but i chose to deal with it and send a message with my craft.

 i thought i was past that kind of prevalent stupidity, but this situation proved me wrong.

    Oh no! What a horrible day you must have had. Good for you for stitching it out.

  2. Wow, the Know-Nothings really got to you. But something good came out of it, and no homicide was committed. Really beautiful stitching.

  3. Wow, using your posts as a guide, I would never have thought you would get so seem such a gentle soul. BUT, while the piece you did in response to some foolish comment/situation is wonderful - don't let the FOOLS get you down...there are plenty of them around, just ignore them. They will never rise to your level of awareness...never, never.

    yes, it is interesting when we think we've passed that sort of thing and then it sneaks up and smacks us. ouch! I hope you really stabbed that needle into the cloth and not yourself.

  5. Oh dear, you do not deserve those stupid comments. Your answer is the best!
