sunday prayer flags


that's EQ5 above and EQ6 below


I love it when solutions, or just new ideas, come in dreams.

these are three of the cloth burritos quick stitched into prayer flags and strung in my crepe myrtle grove out front. My dog walking neighbors thought I was taking a novel approach to decorating for Halloween....


I machine basted them to cotton strips just so people could get a better idea of just what was in one of those rolls. Scale is still an issue...most of these pieces are 7 to10 inches wide.

one of the October burritos....they are down now, safely back in the house.
a book arrived yesterday..I leafed through it a bit and am kind of afraid to read closely, sponge brained as I am...

This is a great book - take a good look! Janet is a great artist. I love her style - it looks sooo simple, but it takes a lot of thought to get it like that!

Jane Bolton's book is good. It basically gives you the permission and guides you to play with fabric like you did with paper as a child. There really isn't anything "new" to most sewists in the book, it is more about letting go of the "rules". I found it a fun read. The prayer flags are wonderful. My squirrels thought so too as they have stolen the 2 sets I put up this summer. They are trying to line their nests with good karma, I guess.

Love the 'flags'...Jeannie - oh no!!! Funny. I have some (painted on muslin) that have been out there for years!
I am loving seeing all the varieties of flags lately :)
