This one is Gareth’s fault.

He found this image last year and insisted I make it into an embroidery kit.

He says she is curing his chronic mansplaining problem.

I think she is the famous female physician Trotula, doing some early research into the problem.

Of course, given current circumstance, it could also be titled “lockdown, day 39, relationship counseling in progress”

Gareth, for all his numerous irritating habits, doesn’t mansplain, although he is consistently surprised to be reminded that I have a brain, specially when I know even the slightest little thing about science. A couple of weeks ago he said “I bet you don’t know why it’s called corona virus”

Me “corona means crown, so I assumed it was a reference to the spiky bits around the molecule or worrever it is”

HIm, blinks in surprised “so you did know”

me, “no, I didn’t know, I deduced”

Anyway, she is now a kit, I also did an option for a madder coloured dress instead of orange, in case you need something to distract you from the urge to murder assorted family members during lockdown (it’s therapeutic, innit)

I want to do a pilgrim vagina/vulva now, I definitely feel the urge

  2. It’s from the bible A favourite story of mine: Joel wife of Heber from the book of judges She put a tent peg through the General Sisera head while he was sleeping in her tent! Got to love it

  3. Jael wife of Heber from the book of Judges took a tent peg and hammered General Sisera to the tent floor while he slept in her tent. Got to love that sense of hospitality!

  4. Jael wife of Heber strikes again! Book of judges general Sisera has his head pinned to the floor with a tent peg when asleep in her tent!
