I have started...

Today I started making my peace 'flags' for 21 September. Well I won't really have peace flags. This year I hope to make a Peace 'prayer' wheel. Basically it will be a wheel with vanes that will catch the wind and turn the wheel; and send the  peace 'prayers' out to the universe as the wheel spins.

I have cut the vanes from an old silver-plated EPNS fruit bowl-basket. There are 8 vanes as that is how many segments the bowl had.

I have stamped 5 vanes with peace aspirations-prayers.

And the other 3 with the saying "imagine peace now".

I hope to get time to finish the wheel etc this week so I can test it before putting it up for peace day.


  1. I think it will be amazing! Looking forward to it continuing to evolve...

  2. How creative! Can't wait to see it come together.

  3. i am so sorry i hadn't seen this from the beginning. i always appreciate your in process posts and the final piece shows what peace means to you.
