82/365 floral print. Today is the International Women's Day on March 8. Holiday of spring flowers, and ... Day of solidarity of working women :) The official version of the USSR says that the tradition to celebrate on March 8 is connected with the "march of empty pots", which was held on that day in 1857 by the textile workers of New York. They protested against unacceptable working conditions and low salaries. It is interesting that in the then press there was not a single note about the strike. And historians have found out, that on March, 8th, 1857 and at all there was a Sunday. It is very strange to arrange strikes on the day off.
In 1910, at a forum of women in Copenhagen, the German Communist Clara Zetkin called on the world to establish an International Women's Day on March 8. She had in mind that on that day, women will organize rallies and processions, and thereby draw public attention to their problems. Well, we all already know this story.
In the USSR, this holiday was brought by friend Zetkin, a fiery revolutionary Alexander Kollontai. The one that conquered the Soviet Union "great phrase": "Give the first man to meet it is as easy as drinking a glass of water."
March 8 was an official holiday in the USSR in 1921. Well, we are again inspired today # DelpozoRE18. I have a strong bunch of tulips on March 8. Because our tubes with paint are transformed with a trowel into bright spots. From the spots buds are born leaves and flowers. Weaving a line in a line pattern of a new floral print. Choose your flower on the fabric. And we'll show you how we draw it.
