Our first workshop is this Thursday! Stitch it up with Melissa Joy @thismachine314 ❤️ Sign up link in profile! ✨ Learn several basic embroidery stitches and techniques as you create a beautiful, modern stitch sampler. You’ll leave with a skill set that can be used on so many different objects. We’ll talk about how to choose great colors and how to modernize an age-old craft. A handy set of skills that will leave you eager to continue “drawing with thread” on whatever strikes your fancy. Workshop includes an Embroidery Starter Kit with all of the materials needed plus some added goodies! ✨ #kirasanfrancisco
Because reading is what?!👂 I needed a break from working on the butterfly so I picked up this pattern from Basic Stitches Design on Etsy. Turns out backstitching isn't as hard as my brain made it out to be! Now to find a frame... #dragrace#readingisfundamental

✨I uploaded my final stitch week video!✨ It only makes sense to do a tutorial on how I put the finishing touches on an embroidery! Episode 7 I teach you how I finish the back of your completed embroidery. 💃
here's the next piece in my series about my trans identity.
this piece shows how the world is constantly trying to place me as a boy or a girl instead of really being neither. it also highlights the lack of privacy one may experience as a trans person, questions like "but what were you born as?" "do you have a penis or vagina?" "but what did your parents name you?" or "how do you have sex?" all of these are deeply personal questions that people think are okay to ask simply because you're transgender. My body and personal life quickly becomes anybody's business. when these questions come up, i wanna respond with another question: "why does it matter to you and what difference does it make?"
