Deep breath so here we go....
Which came first the chicken or the egg? Believe it or not that is a discussion we have had at our dinner table. No one can explain the bunny that brings the eggs but what the heck colored eggs are the symbol of many things, including spring.
Then April arrives being many showers and baby ducklings.
For a long time I have been wanting to make a Tibetan prayer flag. To hang my flag up and have the wind blow my prayers out into the universe. When my son joined the army that goal became stronger as I now pray for peace every day (something I should have been doing all along). So when I saw this block hop, I thought PERFECT - a peace dove on a prayer flag. Two birds with one stone if you will.
So my first design ideas. Did I mention that this is the first time I have made something from my own design?
I went with the more free hand dove with machine feather stitching in silver, over a gloomy sky, with hand embroidery outlining the dove. The word "amniat" is in Pashto and means peace. ( I know because it was on the internet and if it was on the internet it has to be true!) was cut free hand and is raw edged.
Then I added rays to help the dove bring her message to the world. And here the prayer flag is blowing in the wind
Many thanks to Madame Samm and Mary for hosting this very chirpy blog hop. My fellow bloggers for today are listed below.
