I have not done much blog-visiting lately so I am thrilled that I stopped by India Flint's Prophet of Bloom in time to make a word flag for her Seeking Solace Project. She envisions "a collective impromptu poem, recorded on cloth, to sing in the winds." Beautiful!
India invites everyone to make a flag to contribute to her project. Each flag will be triangular and it will have word(s) stitched on it, by its maker ... "a word or a phrase or a sentence that might act as a wish for peace or an acknowledgement of beauty, imply a sense of stillness or simply something that gives you solace." I love the way India thinks and I'm grateful that she shares so freely with all of us on the internet.
For my contribution, I will use the textiles above, which are eco-prints made from using natural materials to make images on the fiber. This is most fitting since India is an internationally known and admired maker and teacher of using nature to print on fiber.
I don't know what my word(s) will be. I'll think on it as I stitch.
