Hello everyone, women in particular –
My project is currently about menstruation. Periods an’ stuff.
And so this is a call for you tell me the stories of your first periods. I wanna hear it all- no matter how ‘boring’ or ’embarrassing’ or ‘disgusting’. Everything.
I will probably use direct quotes in my stitch work, so that’ll be exciting for you I guess.
If you could leave the stories in the comments on this entry that’d be GRATE. If you’re a little shy you can email me:

My story- I was two weeks short of thirteen- I had extreme tummy pain and went to the toilet expecting the worse. Instead, I found blood. After telling my mother that I’d started she danced me round the kitchen singing “You’re a woman, you’re a woman!” Next day I went into school and whispered to all my friend girls “I started my period last night.” It was a proud moment, for me.
