is the last one of my 18 flags for the Prayer Flag Project.
Grief is often a part of big changes; for better or for worse you lose what you had. You also grieve what you never got and what you’ll never get. I was never all that good at grieving (more like an F-), so I have quite a bit of catching up to do. It’s ok, I don’t mind, it actually feels right.
Support, Love, Trust and Grief were made differently than the other 14. I found a format for flags to be part of an exhibition here, so I made these 4 flags according to that just in case. They are quite a bit bigger than the flags from last summer and my first series for this project, quite suitable for such important topics.
The materials are from the same trifty scrap bag and the prayers still written on yellow pieces of fabric stitched between the layers
but I have added more strips of fabrics so they will move even more, layer upon layer
including pieces of an old duvet cover that I brought from home when I went to college, and which was later dyed hot pink for my daughter
and black stitching.
I made a colourful string from scraps of yarn for hanging them together.
Don’t they look wonderful in all their pink prettiness!
May the wind in my back yard travel your way.
