Fiona's flags are underway...

I am well underway preparing for 21 September.

I have done some flags from old book pages which will hang on our verandah; I am continuing to make peace weathergrams that will hang on the tree at the top of the driveway and I have made two small indoor peace flags which will hang in the house or near the front door...

At the moment, my main peace flags are hanging in the shed-studio.

I feel as if I have made pebbles for peace here with my two small internal flags.

I am still writing weathergrams and will hang them in the tree closer to the day.

I would love to see what others are doing or thinking....

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.
