Last week we had another sewing meeting and everyone brought in their pages for the fabric journals they are making. Without exception they were lovely and we were all impressed with the progress made. One more journal session and then we will begin the angels/fairies for decorating the village hall.(The is long and narrow so I don't seem to have fitted us all in the photograph)
I really wanted one of my own but thats not quite the point,you really need a few and then they are hung up outside until they disintergrate and the theme of each flag is dispersed on the wind all over the place.I think its a lovely thought. Then I picked up an old Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and opened it and there was an article on Prayer Flags.They can be quite simple or as complicated as you like.I made 4 in a day which for me is something because usually I agonise over every thing I do.When I have some more I will hang them in the wood.Should anyone like to make one and send it to me I would be delighted and they will join mine. I 'd send you a photograph of them. I'm also asking the sewing group and friends to make one.
The prayer Flag Project is a blog called theprayerflagproject.blogspot.com also take a look at Judy's blog and there is a site on Pinterest as well.
Making and hanging flags is away of speaking a thought or intention out loud.
I need to say that I learnt most of this from the article byJane lafazio in a 2012 Cloth Paper Scissors.
