Sailing towards solstice


June 21st shall be here in no time and as I continue to stitch my flag
for the Solace Project
I can't help but marvel, thinking about so many hands at work just like mine around the world
also stitching with intention - attention - welcoming participation as I do
in this collective poetry project for peace.

My personal deadline for mailing to the far off way station of Andamooka, South Australia
is the first day of June.  This is to insure that should said package decide to go for
a short walkabout in the opal fields beforehand
it will still make it on time to join the party around India's indigo vat
when dipping begins.

Many souls have long since sent their flags for a timely arrival ... those I know of
have been added under the Solace project tab up in the header.
Wonderful stories surround these makings.
Spring continues her riotous dance of exuberance in my garden
but you can find me quietly at work with a needle 
under the green umbrella ...
you can't miss me, I'm the one with the collie at her feet ;>)

Till later, then ... when our flags meet under an Australian sun!

    1. Are you joining me there - are you making a flag, Bodil ?

    2. christi i have done , already in AUS !!!! remember to send it too !!!!

  2. How exciting a trip your piece is going to take!! Oh, opal fields - sounds wonderful as I've never seen an opal except after its been burnished.

    1. Am hoping piece does NOT wander into the opal fields but makes quick haste directly to Andamooka post office!!

    1. well thank you, but flag will no longer look anything like this, Suz, and has changed direction completely since yesterday. Sewing furiously this end to finish on time now. Will make for amusing follow-up story when I reveal what happened ... all good ... lessons learned ... and on I go.

  4. love that woven cloth & wondering what has stayed and what has changed on your flag!

    1. Your guess is as good as mine, Mo, mad scramble now ensuing HA!

  5. Looking forward to seeing your finished flag. This is an exciting project, can't wait to see all the flags flying!

    1. Heh, thanks for popping by, Kathy - and me too [looking forward to seeing it finished] as right now I am in a race with time. I shall prevail, am quite determined ;>]
