Craftster Pick of the Week – Happy Housewife

It's the Craftster Pick of the Week - brought to you by Mr X Stitch!

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.

This week’s pick was made for an art show focused on labor for Labor Day. The subject MeShellRene chose from that theme is the Happy Housewife.

Happy Housewife by MeShellRene

I love it. It immediately reminded me of this Home Economics filmstrip from the 50’s. It makes me glad that I live in a time when I and other women have a choice in our vocation rather than predetermined expectations. MeShellRene drew up the pattern herself, and her stitching is wonderful. I look forward to seeing more posts from her soon!
