05. Stitching Out Stigma ASD Acronyms

This is a piece I designed and stitched for the Stitching Out Stigma project.
The premise is that although the child is surrounded by all the acronyms relating to his autism, he is jumping for joy out of them.  It almost looks like he is throwing them in the air.
I stitched this in a rainbow of colours because autism is a spectrum, like the rainbow.

Here is the full list of what the acronyms stand for (how many did you know already?)

04. Lizzie*Kate Friends are like Angels

This was my Day 4 start for the DUCJC.
Stitched on 25 count yellow evenweave.
I used:
 Jodyri Salsa for the words, 
DMC 115 for the heart, 
DMC 90 for the stars and 
Anchor 979 for the blue border.  
Random beads around the stars.
This chart was a PIF from Sarah-Beth and will be passed on in April.

03. Madame Chantilly On the Beach

On the Beach by Madame Chantilly
Stitched on Kynance evenweave by Sparklies

The fabric is especially dyed by Kate from Sparklies.  I made several colour changes, the blues are 798/799/800, the starfish are 950 and the shell is 842.  The dark tips to the seagulls are 3799, the charted black was just too harsh.  Albert is my cousin's baby.
