The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.
The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.
I think i may cry tonight. I’m mad that my priorities are so out of whack. Im mad that i may be homeless soon. I’m mad that my mom keeps asking me about my sick friend and refuses to accept my “i don’t want to talk about it”.
Like honestly what can you say or do to make me feel better? He doesn’t even like you. Why after so many years of treating him like shit now that he’s sick you wanna ask and be concerned. If you wanna go see him ur a big ass 71 year old. Stop trying to be concerned through me.
I’m fucking dealing and processing and i don’t want/need ur help…i already feel awful that he’s been there for a month and i can’t muster strength to go see him. I know I’m a shit friend. I don’t need to hear those things from u and ur stupid bleating lamb voice.
Shut up and stop asking about him. Hes my friend not fucking yours.
Kate is v. Cool. Maybe next Tcaf around i can actually go up to her table without massive anxiety making me feel like im the most annoying fan ever :/ i probably was pretty alright but i cant help but think i couldve been cooler or whatever.
I pretty much feel that way about every cool person i have said hi to before. But this cute drawing makes me feel like i can move past this consistent feeling of blah someday.
I promise you - unless you are a real creepy weirdo hanging around for 40 minutes or trying to touch my tattoos, you are FINE. I swear I’m less snarky in person than I can be online. My boundaries are there for people who would cross them, not to deter the friendly and excited. Tell me you’re nervous at a show and I’ll tell you I am, too!
