You can use any color, but Anchor has an awesome rainbow variegated floss: Anchor 1375. I’d love to see this stitched out in that!
My city is having an unusual Pride Month this year. Last year we had a road rally, kind of like a parade, but floats only and you had to watch it online. This year we’re doing an outdoor only celebration, no shops or booths, but instead there’s an outdoor exhibition in a garden and a human rights march. Hopefully the political nature of the march will keep it much smaller than the usual pride parade that we do.
We went to the exhibition and it was kind of like going to an outdoor museum, lots of posters on fences with the history of LGBT people both local and global. It was split into several sections with different themes such as Indigenous history and queer media. There was a whole area devoted to different support groups and wellness. In the zen area, there was a rock stacking activity where all the rocks were painted different colors so you could stack your flag. That was my favorite. It was so simple, but it helped to break up the reading.
There were a few sections with local artists too. I saw a few really big murals that looked amazing and photography collections. Lots of butts, apparently butts are popular subjects for LGBT art. There was a part with youth art and I assume they had a no fanart rule because there were two OC’s that looked suspiciously like Edgeworth and Phoenix Wright.
And hey, I manged to get through the whole exhibition without having to visit the medical tent which is a victory for me! I get overheated easily so, even if it’s just walking around, I can end up getting woozy.
Thank you for the pattern and your story/blog post. I hope you haven’t had to deal with any overheating indents since! 🙂
