Women's Work or Fancy Work was the inspiration for this body of art in my book. There are political, social and economic motives behind needlework, which run the gamut from an instrument of oppression to an outlet for creative satisfaction and even feminine training. Needlework can come from a place of urgency or from a place of peace or from a "room of ones owns", that is remote from the screaming world.
