A lot of my best work comes from a place of irritation – this is one of those.
I have never wanted children. Ever. Yet, when I tell people this they usually respond with something like “you will change your mind” or “what if your future husband wants kids?” Which, is so very frustrating.. So, I’m making a piece about it. I am making cloth menstrual pads and beading/embroidering them with things people say to me when I tell them I don’t want children.
Currently in process, the below piece is titled “You will change your mind.” Made with red beads, poly thread, and cotton.
