We at the Fort have been identifying and finding comfort in the symbolism of the butterfly these days. We're all just in our chrysalis, maybe turning into goo in our homes, and we are going to (fingers crossed) turn into beautiful social butterflies when we emerge.
After the idea of butterflies had been mentioned several times in conversation, we decided that we should all design a small selection of butterflies. This ended up being a lovely meditation for us, stitching these little beacons of hope.
Speaking of beacons of hope, we want to try something a little different. We'd like to encourage you to purchase this one as a gift. Healthcare workers all over the world are putting themselves on the line and sacrificing their own safety for the rest of us. If you purchase a butterfly as a gift for the healthcare worker in your life, we will include a handwritten message from you. Just let us know what you would like to say in the notes section on the checkout page.
