prayer flags and socks

Each spring I make scads of these prayer flags. I string them into a garland and call it "praying for spring." I make scads of them because it's just easiest to make a whole bunch all at one time.

They're for my shop mostly - but it's nice to have them on hand for birthday gifts and stuff.

It's a bit of a production - stamping, painting, gluing, stitching - and we know it's prayer flag season when they're strewn hither and thither about the house.

But everybody loves them :)


And, oh my goodness, here I am it's almost May and I've begun a wool sock. I was burned out a year ago after having made 5 pairs through the winter. So this will be my only pair this year ...

.... "praying for autumn" socks? How ironic!

fannie buchanan

I painted a little picture on the back of the clam digging/funeral check list. Poor Fannie Buchanan - I doubt her book is in print anymore. I've decided the funeral was hers.
