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?)

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.
