I have recently discovered the work of Mary Yaeger via my post written a couple of weeks ago about scutelliphily.
Mary Yaeger mixes a dash of humour with a feminist twist as she creates one of a kind female merit badges which illustrate “rites of passage”. These small hand embroidered pieces use the iconic format of a merit badge to talk about the experience of being female. It is interesting work – do go and check it out.
You can also see more of Mary’s work in her blog called Stabbed: Not counted or crossed discusses the work of artists who stitch
Loved Mary’s blog…bookmarked it for returns. Thanks!
