A week of boss themed cross stitch designs and patterns free to download!

It's Boss Week! A whole week of cross stitch designs dedicated to bosses and managers everywhere. You are sure to find the perfect work and boss related free cross stitch patterns to jazz up even the most dour cubicle.

Today's free boss related (and Madmen inspired) cross stitch pattern is St. Peggy Olson. I don't tend to do a lot of cross stitch designs from TV shows but I wanted a cross stitch pattern for boss week that would represent a uniquely feminine struggle: working twice as hard and getting four times as much done ten times better for half the salary and recognition.

My life story. We talk about "male dominated" fields and that those fields are very difficult for women to operate in effectively. Guess what? Most fields are still male dominated. Hooray!

I also don't tend to get political with my cross stitch. I find politics and current affairs important yet depressing. And I have enough of a struggle there. But I know so many women, like Peggy, who are working so hard to get to the top of their profession, often having to fight discrimination and out right misogyny. I was one of them for a while. Taking a break from it at the moment lol.

They aren't famous, they aren't entrepreneurs or running their own businesses, and in many ways are just ordinary people. But they have an ambition to get to the top of their field and be recognised in their industry as being the best at what they do. Peggy puts a face on all of those women who labour in obscurity but achieve so highly and contribute so much while having to navigate what is still a mine field of stereotypes and sexism.

So this image of Peggy comes from that scene in Madmen where she has reached a high point in her career and she is walking into a new agency as a boss. She can work and drink at the same time and she doesn't take any of your crap. Patron saint of boss women.
