“Injustice anywhere…”

Feeling such a heavy heart with everything going on in our country right now.  I woke up this morning, as perhaps many did, feeling quite helpless.

I see so many posts on my Facebook and Instagram of stitching…because stitchers are my people and my community and, in a lot of ways, a deeply important part of my world.  And yet, I am so very aware of all the other posts, the non-stitching related posts, that have been a part of my world, particularly in the last few days.

We stitchers typically channel our energies into our stitching, often when we are hurting the most.  Here’s where my energy got channeled today:

I’m offering this pattern as a freebie for anyone to download here:  WorksByABCInjustice

If you choose to download this, I hope you will in exchange consider making a donation to a charity of your choice.  If you are looking for ideas, these have been suggested to me by friends:

Of course, I encourage you to do your own due diligence before making donations to any charities.

In addition, I’ve seen this  Anti-racism Google Doc  posted in a number of places.  Definitely worth a look.

Do what you can in the world.

There is nothing that comforts me more than putting needle and thread to fabric or canvas. I've been stitching since I was a teenager, exploring all types of needlework - cross stitch, canvaswork, counted thread techniques like blackwork and Hardanger...you name it. All these years of stitching have led to my own design business. Most of my designs are cross stitch patterns, but I have also enjoyed creating beginner level canvaswork designs and blackwork patterns as well.

  1. Thank you for this wonderful chart, Arlene. It truly expresses my feelings as I have been very emotional lately and even more so these last few days. The anger, lies and hatred spreading throughout our country must stop. What it will take to end this, I’m not sure but I think expressing ourselves in some way is a start. I enjoy listening to you on your YouTube channel and on Fibertalk and will make a couple of donations in June.
