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.
